Forget me knot equine rescue is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization, dedicated to rehabilitating, rescuing and caring or neglected, starved, abused and otherwise unwanted horses. . FMK is not breed specific but we specialize in off the track Thoroughbred horses. We take retired/injured race horses and give them time to settle down and then restart training to have second careers or become companion horses. Those that cannot be re-homed due to age or injury will live their lives out peacefully here at the rescue, either as pasture buddies, equine assisted therapy horses or part of our children’s day camp program in the summer. We are a no kill rescue working to promote the humane treatment of horses. We strive to give the best equine care possible.
Our goal is to bring together humans and horses in a safe environment, using natural horsemanship methods. We believe in education and information to deliver our message. We think that our children are the best resource to start to begin to change the way people treat animals. We accomplish this through our day camp program, teen volunteer program as well as many other educational and support programs including Mentor.org and the United Way.
