About

Welcome to Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue! We are so happy that you are considering choosing us as a community service opportunity and are so grateful for your help!

Did you know?

Ongoing care of the farm and our 51 equine residents is made possible by our team of dedicated volunteers. Lucky Orphans volunteers not only give back while making lasting memories, but are offered a strong foundation in horse care and skills-based training. We offer volunteer orientation on the first and third Sundays of each month, and LOHR’s Cross-Tie Clinics on the second and fourth Saturdays monthly, where volunteers in good standing can participate in free clinics to enhance and strengthen their skills. Lucky Orphans Instructors are CHA certified.

Mission Statement

Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is dedicated to providing a safe haven for unwanted, abused, neglected horses and to improve the relationship between horses and people. We are committed to raising funds to support the rescued horses in our care and will pursue the acquisition of grants, gifts, bequests and donations to support the organization. We are a no-kill rescue striving to promote the humane treatment and to strengthen the bond between horses and people through the education of people, especially children. Our goal is to properly unite humans and horses in a safe environment, using accepted methods to preserve the best equine care through informative and instructional guidance, education and administration adhering to the understanding of the need for the preservation of rural equine communities. We are not breed specific and promise each of our horses will never again know the abuse, neglect, abandonment or other injury that brought them to our facilities.
Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is EAGALA certified and can provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Growth and Learning programs. Our EAGALA certified staff are committed to working side by side with the horses we rescue to help change the lives of people with a diverse range of struggles such as those suffering from addictions, depression, grief & loss, trauma, at-risk youth, and improving relationships in families and groups.
