The Humane Organization Representing Suffering Equines (H.O.R.S.E.) of Connecticut, Inc., is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected horses. In addition to direct intervention, H.O.R.S.E. also maintains an on-going commitment to educating the public regarding horse care.

H.O.R.S.E. was established in 1982 and moved to its permanent home in 1995. It is still staffed by a team of volunteers who share its dedication to and love of the beautiful horse. We intervene on the behalf of suffering equines by providing relief, recovery, shelter and rehabilitation. Once a horse is physically and mentally rehabilitated, we then begin the process of seeking an adoptive home. All prospective adoptive homes are carefully screened. And, we require a contract which guarantees that the horse shall not be bred or sold. It is a lifetime commitment.

H.O.R.S.E. receives no town, state or federal funding. Monies are raised through memberships, sponsorships, charitable contributions and our own fund raising activities. And, all donations go directly to the horses.

We investigate all cruelty complaints (which are kept strictly confidential). If a problem exists, co-operation is first sought from the owner. Prosecution is pursued only when there is no other recourse. Horses placed in our custody are provided with immediate veterinary and farrier care. We then seek adoptive homes that meet with our standards.

In addition, we are available upon request, to speak to interested groups in order to raise public awareness to our purpose and support.
