Question Horse Rescue Experiences

Hi everyone:)

I am not going to get into detail becasue I know people will judge and blah,blah,blah. But can anyone share stories of their horse rescue experiences? Or if you adopted a rescue horse that was still a bit afraid of humans. How did you get the horse to trust you? Any advice, or tips would be appreciated!

I can't offer any advice nor share a story with you, but first of all well done for wanting to offer a rescue horse a home.

One thing that I would do if I wanted to rehoe a rescue horse would be to try to find out as much about his/her background as possible. What's his story, was he mis-treated/underfed/neglected etc...

You will either need to be a very experienced person yourself or have excellent advice on hand.
Rescue horses are often "problem" horses too. I know someone who rehomed a horse who had been starved and every mealtime my friend had to be careful because the horse would become quite dangerous because he was so desperate to eat.

Another thing to bear in mind is that rescue horses sometimes have physical problems too. These can be things like a bad back or various injuries or poor hoof care, so it might be wise to have a little money set aside for unforeseen emergencies.

I hope that some lucky horse finds his or her way into your life!

Awww, thanks Yoshi:) I still have to present this whole plan to my dad, but I have got some info. On this horse. I also have had experience with abused horses. I helped an older lady from my church train and calm one of her rescued horses. I love the finesse' and patience you have to have with them! It just seems like a very rewarding thing:)
