We exist to rescue "unwanted" horses!

WNCR opens its doors to the abused/neglected horse


Suffer no more.

We are here to provide for horses, not they to provide for us…refuge awaits behind our safe gates…


In general, horses should have good flesh on them. Ribs and hips should not be apparent. The horse should move freely and naturally, without severe neglect to the hooves. A horse should have shelter from inclement weather, access to fresh water and food, and should not be kept in a small pen for long periods of time. Exercise for a horse is important for the overall mental and physical health.


Neglect and ignorance are the most common causes of damage to horses. Unfortunately, individuals do not have to pass a comprehensive examination before purchasing an equine. Many learn as they go, some do not care to learn at all. Even though providing the absolute minimum care is legal, it is not healthy for the equine. Sometimes, those horses end up at WNCR, where we can rehabilitate and provide a safe, comfortable environment for the horse as well as give the horse a second chance at life.
