Who We Are
WindyHill Equine Rescue and Rehoming is a non-profit rescue organization that specializes in saving horses that find themselves in the dire situation of being on a kill lot awaiting imminent shipment outside of the US for slaughter. It is estimated that 92% are healthy and could have lived out a productive life. We believe that no horse deserves this fate and that all of them deserve a second chance.
As a rescue organization, we strive to save some of these horses and permanently rehome them with loving, responsible owners.
The horses that we rescue have gone through quarantine, had their feet trimmed, been vaccinated, dewormed, vet checked and treated as needed. They have been loved, cared for and pampered for any emotional trauma. They are also trained or restarted as needed using Natural Horsemanship methods in order to make them great equine partners with a future.
It is a beautiful thing to see their spirit and personalities return and come back to life once they know they are safe.
Our mission is to find these lucky few loving, permanent homes, and in the process, help raise awareness of the cruel and inhumane fate that so many other horses will continue to face.
