You don't find rescues in Denmark and Germany like you do in the US. In fact a lot of US rescued horses end up in Europe. The laws there are much tougher and animal abuse and neglect is MUCH less common.
For your location you'll find it easier to find a horse to buy locally than to locate a local rescue.
Growing up in Deutschland, where I learned to ride, I never saw a neglected animal anywhere. The parents of one of my local friends there once told me that you'd get in more trouble for beating your dog than you would for beating your spouse.
