HRR Rescue / Rehabilitation Horses

Jewell Horton, our founder has rehabilitated nearly 100 horses in her carrier from traumatic injuries, starvation and behavioral conditions.  Intakes are on a case by case basis which is mainly dictated by HRR finances, estimated cost of care, space and time.

HRR works with law enforcement and animal control agencies on stray-roaming, surrender and neglect cases.  IF you are with a law enforcement or animal control agency and need assistance, please email Jewell for assistance with these types of cases.  Cruelty case assistance is often at cost for investigating agencies! Email hortonsrehabranch@gmail.com for information!

Below are a few galleries of some of the many horses the Jewell has rehabilitated in her 20+ year career.

Peoche
Peoche

Peoche is a senior Appaloosa mare in her very late 20's that has lived her entire life in the City of Wilmington. Her owner thought they were grandfathered in but zoning forced her out! We have kept Peoche for her while she frantically sold her home and move to a new place she can have her mare... Keeping them together is the goal! They are bonded and she puts all she has into this mare - who are we to take that away?

Champ came with Mr Potatoes, he was a stunning QH, a former performance horse from the Dixie Stampede. He was almost completely blind and being given away over and over due to that! Being a very spirited horse he did NOT make safe choices and was a danger to himself, Mr P and people. He was by far one of the hardest euthanasia's we have ever performed but he was not living a good life... he screamed and would RUN full gallop into everything including MR P! it was incredibly sad... He is free
