EER was founded to provide rehabilitation, re-homing and aftercare to equine athletes that no longer served their previous life and were therefore, in jeopardy of being discarded, neglected or even abused. We strive to meet the rehab needs of our rescues, evaluate training level and personality traits and determine long-term general care needs for each horse. Then, we pair them with an individual that matches each horse’s needs.
It is estimated that over 140,000 horses were surrendered, abandoned or sent to kill pens in 2021. As the world has changed significantly with the pandemic and now rising costs, many people are struggling. Coupled with the time and cost to rehabilitate a horse, we are continually taking in horses in need and helping them by avoiding the trip to auction.
EER would appreciate a new 15’x24′ loafing shed, a color photocopier/printer, water bucket heaters, muck rakes, winter hay fund, and a Treasurer or accounting specialist.
In 2020, the USDA has reported that 92% of the horses sent to slaughter are fit for re-homing. EER has a 98% rehab and rehoming rate amongst our intakes.
“Gina is amazing! Very knowledgeable and very honest. She wants the very best for the horses and their future owners and will do her best to find a great match. We couldn’t be happier with Max (aka Chance).” — Heide Bliss, forever home to previous client
