"Together We Make A Difference"
We are volunteers that believe that every equine deserves a home. A home where they receive consistent care, including fresh water, nutritious and ample food source(s), and access to a three-sided wind shelter. Each equine deserves adequate exercise and companionship with other equines or pasture-mates. No horse should be deficient of medical and farrier care to address short-term or long-term goals or concerns. Every horse deserves a chance for a fresh start with time to heal, trust, and learn. Each HNR horse comes with a story and each HNR horse needs you to be a part of their new chapter on life.
**Volunteer **Adopt **Be the Difference!
