We believe first and foremost in the dignity of the equine.
Our newest resident, Jamie Blue, was born 9/21. Within days, she developed contracted tendons in both front legs. IV treatment and splinting were not correcting the problems, so Dynasplints had to be ordered. Vet bills are already over $2,000 and the splints cost $1,000. She's currently an inpatient at an equine hospital, with charges exceeding $50 per day. We need help with these costs...please do what you can!

What makes Spirit Horse different than most other rescues?
We exclusively use methods of Natural Horsemanship.
We provide lessons and clinics to teach these natural methods.
Most people think of equine rescue as a physical endeavor - improving weight, health, hoof care, etc. But we know that it is much more. Natural Horsemanship allows us to also improve the emotional and mental aspects of life for the equines in our care.
We respect the equine as a prey animal who survived for tens of thousands of years before domestication. Through an understanding of equine psychology, behavior and communication, we are able to interact with equines in a way that is in tune with their nature, thus the term Natural Horsemanship.
What is Parelli? This method of Natural Horsemanship employs knowledge of equine psychology and behavior rather than fear, intimidation and mechanical devices to develop a relationship between human and horse. Click the arrow below to watch the video for yourself.
