Since Lucky Orphans opened our barn doors in 2008, we have helped many horses, along with some sheep and goats, find a more promising and meaningful future. It is the goal of LOHR to not only save these wonderful animals, rehabilitating them and rebuilding their trust in people, but also to use their stories of struggle, overcoming adversity, building trust, leadership, and teamwork to create an understanding and inspiration in children, young adults, and the community. Today, Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is dedicated to not only providing a forever home for these magnificent creatures, but also to educating the community and focusing on strenghening the relationship between children and animals to build a more compassionate future.
Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is dedicated to providing a safe haven for unwanted, abused, neglected horses and to improve the relationship between horses and people. We are committed to raising funds to support the rescued horses in our care and will pursue the acquisition of grants, gifts, bequests and donations to support the organization. We are a no-kill rescue striving to promote the humane treatment and to strengthen the bond between horses and people through the education of people, especially children. Our goal is to properly unite humans and horses in a safe environment, using accepted methods to preserve the best equine care through informative and instructional guidance, education and administration adhering to the understanding of the need for the preservation of rural equine communities. We are not breed specific and promise each of our horses will never again know the abuse, neglect, abandonment or other injury that brought them to our facilities.
Lucky Orphans Horse Rescue is EAGALA certified and can provide Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Growth and Learning programs. Our EAGALA certified volunteers are committed to working side by side with the horses we rescue to help change the lives of people with a diverse range of struggles such as those suffering from addictions, depression, grief & loss, trauma, at-risk youth, and improving relationships in families and groups.
