Hope 4 Horses is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe, caring and healthy environment for horses that are unwanted, at risk or displaced. Our goal is to train our equine companions to be of value in various equestrian activities so that they can find appropriate "forever" homes. This includes utilizing these valued equines in educational equestrian activities such as adaptive horsemanship, equine assisted therapy and traditional equitation disciplines. Our goal is to educate the public regarding the proper and humane treatment of horses.

Hope for Horses, Inc. is working hard to change the face of rescues and rescued equids. Rescues should be a safe landing place for displaced and at risk equids. From that aspect we then provide training and education to both horses and humans on bringing these to a better place and back out into the equestrian world. Through training and behavior management, we work to bring some of our equids into our therapeutic horsemanship program and are looking to expand into equine assisted therapy with professional human therapists.

We use every venue available from competitions, exhibitions, clinics and showcases to show off our ambassadors and use these formats to educate both the equestrian public and the general public

We are growing in that direction and will achieve our goals and we will keep up-ing our goals

We are making progress in this direction. Many Top Professionals in their equestrian fields have endorsed us and our program

We have accomplished much, competitively, in our therapeutic horsemanship program and in our Horsemasters' program. We want to grow this even more
