Facilities that Accept Horses
The Unwanted Horse Coalition (UHC) seeks to list facilities that provide specific services for unwanted horses, such as retraining facilities, therapeutic riding groups and police departments, and facilities that accept horses with special needs, such as retirement farms and rescue groups.
The UHC will not list a facility whose primary focus is breeding, sales, boarding, or showing. If such a facility has an established program for unwanted horses as part of its overall structure, please contact us to provide more detail about how the specific program assists unwanted horses.
