WHERE we are dedicated to providing a forever home to horses in need. We provide a natural, herd-based living environment offering safety, health enhancement, companionship and play. These horses then give back to the community through our equine facilitated learning program for humans by participating in resiliency training and social and emotional fitness education through  equine guided activities. 

Welcome to River Pines Horse Sanctuary...

Our Two-fold Mission:

First, to rescue any equine species from endangerment through neglect,

abuse or abandonment.

Second, to offer personal growth and education through equine guided activities - creating place and purpose for the horses we serve.

  • Offer resiliency skill building for people and horses on our new agility course - fun and fitness for all!

  • Increase monthly donations for sustainability, and to implement the real community need behind our two-fold mission.

  • Increase public outreach to address:

    • Increased suicidality 

    • The increased need for resiliency skill building and empowerment in the 21st Century



Our Sanctuary horses give back to you, our community, 

by providing the support and guidance of their Spirit Horse wisdom in our  

Equine Facilitated Experiential Learning programs - Join the Spirit Horse Journey now!

Please give, give to end hunger, abuse and neglect for horses, give for those who suffer from suicidality, trauma and loneliness, give to support your neighbors and please give for horses.  Thank you again for your support throughout the year.


Heartfelt gratitude from every Horse at River Pines Horse Sanctuary!
