An organization dedicated to providing forever homes to unwanted horses. We specialize in accepting horses with social and/or emotional rehabilitation issues. We provide a natural, herd-based living environment offering safety, health enhancement, companionship and play for horses in need.
When appropriate, our horses then assist in teaching human development, social and emotional intelligence skills, nature immersion and basic natural horsemanship for children and adults of all ages. Many of our horses also participate in providing community service opportunities for at-risk youths, assisting in developing knowledge and equine-based skills. They assist in increasing community awareness through our service projects such as volunteer opportunities, equine skill-based internships and mentoring opportunities. We also provide opportunities for horse husbandry and equine management programs for disadvantaged and at-risk youth on an individual basis.
River Pines Horse Sanctuary is presently offering a mentoring program for a Senior Project. Our current senior will be learning about rescued horses, equine care and management, natural horsemanship and basic riding skills.
We currently are accepting horses in need, along with donations such as hay, grain, grooming tools, winter blankets for small to extra-large horses, and cash for daily maintenance and feed, medical emergencies, shelter maintenance, fencing materials and more in order to provide and care for these amazing animals.
and volunteer help are greatly appreciated!
