Rescue and Re-home
The rescue program saves Arabian and part Arabian horses that are at risk of shipping to slaughter. The horses are either standing in a feedlot and will be shipped if not saved. Helena, pictured to the right, had less than an hour before shipping. Other horses are horses that are at auction, where AHRE outbids the kill buyer to secure the horse's safety. Once in the care of AHRE, horses are rehabilitated, re-trained if needed, fully vetted, work with the youth from the mentoring program, and are adopted to loving forever homes.
Our program is available for youths ages 13-17. The program is designed to promote confidence around horses and within one's self, as well as teach the basics of interacting with these beautiful animals. Youth will learn proper feeding, handling, and cleaning techniques. We will mentor youth on how to instruct and train horses, how to earn their respect, and they'll even get the chance to ride.
Our program is designed to be a long-term commitment. Our goal is to have students succeed through our various levels of progress, to the point where they are comfortable to be independent with our horses.
Each mentoring session will last 45 minutes. Each session is $30, with the option to do a bundle package of four sessions for $100. AHRE will be establishing a scholarship fund to assist youth with financial need with the cost of the program. Contact AHRE now for more information and to schedule your first session!
