Horse rescue

From AlexBrownRacing
Jump to: navigation, search


There are many horse rescue organizations throughout North America. They come in many shapes and sizes and operate very differently. Some attend horse auctions and compete with Kill buyers to rescue horses from horse slaughter. Some take in rescues in their local area. Some rehabilitate horses to enable them to live a productive and useful life in a new career (horse racing to show jumping for example), some are forever homes for old and infirmed horses.

The section below lists horse rescues that participate on alexbrownracing discussion boards in terms of fundraising. Each link will take you to each rescue's page where the rescue describes the type of rescue it does, the fundraising it has done on ABR. The rescue can use the page to keep Fans of Barbaro up to date with the horses. We also have a page that lists supported horses of FOBs. FOBs who visit a rescue or have experiences with a rescue can also add their feedback to the rescue page.

There is also a special page to remember those rescued horses that have gone to the rainbow bridge: Remembrance Over The Rainbow Bridge Members or rescues can add those horses who have passed on in this special section.

Here is a list of recipients of TCA grants for 2007.

Competitive Trail Challenge A fairly new sport, "custom made" for the RESCUE horse, gaining ground in the Equestrian world.

Contentious horse rescue issues

Tension among horse rescue organizations is a result of the following issues:

a. whether to buy from a feedlot and / or kill buyers (inflating their profits yet being a last resort for horses destined for slaughter) versus competing with kill buyers at auction (increasing the cost of the horse to the kill buyer)

b. guaranteeing a forever home for a rescued horse (adoption contracts etc.) versus simply rescuing a horse from a current situation

c. the potential for hoarding

d. competition for funding

e. whether to save an adoptable horse (easier to move on) versus an old / infirmed horse (more at risk of being slaughtered)

f. public (no profit with tax relief for donors) versus private rescues
