SweetHearts of the Rodeo supporting Save a Forgotten Equine
Save a Forgotten Equine

Why should you support Save a Forgotten Equine?

SAFE changes horses' lives for the better.

Horses come to SAFE from dire situations of neglect and abuse. They arrive at our rescue hungry, weak, and afraid. First, we restore their health, then we provide the training and handling they need to succeed. When they’re ready, we carefully select the best possible adoptive home. And our commitment to their well-being continues long after they leave our care.

Facing equine suffering and despair is difficult, but our reward is seeing the life come back into the eyes of these horses, watching them regain the shine and spirit of good health, and knowing that a brighter future awaits each one.
