This Old Horse
Founded in 2012, This Old Horse is a private, volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a dignified, lifelong sanctuary for retired or rescued horses while they continue to serve as ambassadors to the positive effect of "horse power" in the lives of people.
This Old Horse enables retired working horses
to age in place and provides comfort and support to them through the changes and challenges of old age. They have paid their dues and earned our love.
Our mission is to create a sanctuary for aged horses who have served us well. We are a retirement refuge for horses who, alongside their human professionals, have worked hard for a living. As these horses age, time and effort take their toll, and they are no longer capable of full-time work. Often their owners or handlers must move them out to make room for more able-bodied replacements.
Our intention is to give these veterans a home for life where they may age in place, loved, honored and respected to the end. We also support horses whose owners have experienced hardship and are unable to care for them and horses who need rehabilitation services to recover from injury.
