The Homes for Horses Coalition – Advancing Equine Protection

Thanks to all who participated in The Homes For Horses Coalition 2014 Summit in Denver, CO on July 31 and August 1.  It was a great success!

The Homes for Horses Coalition is supported by Animal Welfare Institute, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and The Humane Society of the United States through the Jeannie Dodson Equine Protection Fund.

The Coalition is dedicated to ending horse slaughter and other forms of equine abuse, while promoting growth, collaboration and professionalism in the equine rescue and protection community. There is no cost to HHC membership.

We are a group of professionals working together to actively promote the welfare and protection of horses and other equines. By working to end horse slaughter and other forms of equine cruelty, provide care and homes to horses in need, advance the highest operating standards for equine rescue and retirement homes and promote responsible horse ownership, the Homes for Horses Coalition is actively engaged in improving the lives of America's equines.

Many of the coalition's members operate equine care facilities while others are involved in government policy affecting horses and other equines. We also partner with professionals in the field, including breeders, trainers and veterinarians. The cumulative expertise of our group puts the Homes for Horses Coalition in a unique position to advocate for equines from a highly informed perspective that, most importantly, always puts the welfare of equines above commercial interests.

The Homes for Horses Coalition believes that:

  • Every horse has intrinsic value and deserves humane treatment at all stages in life.
  • The horse industry, including the equine veterinary medical profession, has an obligation to promote responsible horse breeding, ownership and care.
  • Horse owners have a responsibility to provide high-quality, long-term care for their horses.
  • All horses deserve a humane end to life and that horse slaughter is neither humane nor acceptable.

Our Rescue Equine of the Month


D'Artagnan is looking for his new forever home. He is a very handsome, approx. 16 yr. old TB gelding, 16 hands, who is very personable, sweet and willing. He is sound and would love to have his very own person. D'Artagnan has not been trained for the trail and would be better suited for someone who wants to play in the arena or around the ranch. He has been with us for some time now and has received extensive training using natural horsemanship methods and a small amount of basic Dressage training. He requires an experienced and confident horseperson to share his life with.
