Mission Statement

"Love This Horse, Equine Rescue Inc." is a horse rescue specializing in taking in forgotten, neglected and abused Arabian horses from local animal shelters, distressed owners, kill pens, from local horse auctions.

Description

We bring rescued Arabian horses into a safe and nurturing environment, where they are brought back to health are gentled and loved. When the horses are strong enough, they are evaluated by Vera and Belinda, and if possible, restarted for a new life as a riding horse.

We believe that every horse deserves a job. For some of our horses, this means becoming a great trail or lesson horses. Others are destined to become therapy horses, helping kids and adults healing from their own deep wounds. We work hard to take care of these horses, all the while knowing that the horses are
secretly taking care of us.

Our goal is to train all of our rescue horses, so they are rideable. A lot of that training is done on the trail. You almost almost see me riding with two horses. First, we just pony the rescue horse all over the trails, once used to a saddle, the horse is ponied all over the trail with a saddle. Next, once our fantastic trainer Belinda Albracht has ridden the horse in the round-pen & arena, the horse is ponied all over the trail with a rider (usually one of my daughters). The final step is to ride the horse on the trail with another companion horse and ultimately on his/her own.
