Hi everyone! My name is Apollo, I am a 26 year old Registered American Quarterhorse. I have lots of western pleasure show and therapeutic riding experience under my saddle. I am also pretty cuddly and super sweet! I have developed some seasonal allergies but hey who doesn't have those?! Don't let my age fool you, I still enjoy participating and seeing all the wonderful people who come to the programs that are held at Freedom Hill.

These horses are our permanent residents due to age, chronic illness and/or lameness and will stay with us at Freedom Hill Horse Rescue to live our their golden years. We do not come to that decision lightly but we feel it is in the horses' best interests.
Whiskey is a Belgian Draft Thoroughbred cross who was born in 2002. He is the tallest horse at our rescue standing at 16.3 hands high. FHHR welcomed Whiskey after his owners made the hard decision to surrender him to our rescue. He is in wonderful shape and we are grateful to his former owners for trusting us with this handsome boy!
Whiskey is our newest horse and is currently getting settled at FHHR where he will receive training. After he is trained and assessed, he may be available for adoption.
Badger is an 19 year old, 14.2hh, chestnut and white paint gelding, with a bald face. Badger is a very sweet guy, former trail partner and kid's pony. Badger was diagnosed with EPM and Lymes Disease and was very wobbly. Owner had to make the hard decision to ask for help and give Badger up as they could not afford the multiple treatments needed to help Badger. FHHR asked our vet to do xrays to check his back and neck and also do bloodwork. Results showed very high titers for EPM and Lymes so we started him on 2 medications and then took him in to our rescue. He is still currently being treated for EPM and is making great progress!

Dawson, born in 1994, is a 16hh Thoroughbred, came to us in 2015 when he was retired from a rigorous lesson and jumping program. Dawson has a wonderful temperament and has been a very willing partner in the Equine-Assisted Learning and educational programs at the rescue. He had an eye removed last year but has adjusted quite well. He continues to be a well loved goofball at Freedom Hill.
