What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation and Training Program

This program are trains/retrains horses so that they can be adopted out to new homes.  It involves getting the horses to the Center, giving them time to decompress after arrival, taking care of their physical and mental needs, and putting them in the training program.  The trainer gets them to a basic walk, trot, canter/lope level, and provides a foundation for new owners to expand upon.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• The Kentucky Equine Humane Center began operation in 2007, and is currently housed on a 72 acre farm. Over 900 horses have come through the Center. It is an all-breed horse rescue and shelter, its mission statement is:
- To provide humane treatment and shelter while working as a resource to seek adoptive homes for Kentucky’s unwanted equines, regardless of breed
- To educate the public and raise awareness for responsible equine ownership so that fewer horses end up in crisis
- To work with and serve as a model for organizations with the same mission in other states: to save America’s equines from inhumane treatment

We offer a tailored re-training approach to every horse that is surrendered to us. 100% of our horses go to new homes, after they have been assessed by our staff and given the care they need to ready them for their next big adventure!

We have a full time staff of horse professionals who are experienced with equine rescue. The can assess and rehabilitate horses at a high level giving the horse a bright future with a new family

Since 2009, we have rescued and rehomed over 1000 horses. We continue to work with strategic partners and the private sector to help approximately 100 horses a year
