Mississippihorses.org is an online community dedicated to assisting horse rescue organizations and law enforcement agencies across our state in rehabilitating and finding homes for abused and abandoned horses. We provide information to horse owners so they can make an educated choice for their horses when they are no longer able to keep them. Our network includes volunteers from the Humane Society, veterinarians and their assistants, horse rescue organizations, trainers, riders and horse lovers of all kinds. From retirees to middle school students, we all share one thing - a love for these magnificent animals. The purpose and mission of our web site is to assist equine rescue organizations in their efforts to find homes for their horses and to bring awareness to the problems and issues facing horses in our state. 

 

   
   

 

Special Events & Projects

   

 

Artwork, t-shirts and books of photography featuring the 17 horses rescued in Yalobusha County are available. MS Horses in partnership with In Defense of Animals will be providing the care and training needed in order for them to find their forever home. For more information or to view the artwork please click here.



April 29, 2014 a tornado tore through Winston County causing major destruction to life and property. Rotunda Riddle lost his mother, Dora Triplett and his prized mare, Star to the storm. Star left behind a two week old colt that would require more care and expense than Mr. Riddle could provide. We have taken the colt, Smokey, to care for him until Mr. Riddle can recover from the damage to his home and property. Click here to follow Smokey's story.


We've started a campaign called Ten reasons to donate to help people better understand how our organization works and how we are able to provide care to abused and neglected horses. We realize it's lengthy but it's hard to say in a few sentences what all is involved in our day to day operations. Thank you for taking the time to read about us and caring about our horses.



First Annual Animals in Need Trail Ride to benefit In Defense of Animlals and MS Horses was held May 3, 2014 at Ford's Well Wrangler Campground in Oakland, MS. The ride was followed by a silent auction and Bar-B-Que plate. A great time was had be all and everyone is looking forward to next year's! Watch a short clip from the ride featuring Bella, one of our horses available for adoption.

 
We were so proud of our volunteers, David Gray and Victoria Scarbrough and our rescues, Dumas and Pippi for their participation in the Parelli Horse & Soul Show in Tunica! Please visit our album, Weekend with Parelli. The Parelli's and their team of trainers were amazing and it's obvious they truly care about the welfare of horses. Clips and actual demo of Dumas during the show. Will post Pippi's soon.
 
Sponsoring a horse is a wonderful way to help if you have limited time, space or finances. You can be a part of a specific horse's life while it waits for its forever home or sponsor one that is a permanent resident at the Muleshoe Ranch Sanctuary in Carroll County. For more information on how to sponsor a horse click here.

homes to save as many as possible. To learn more about the nurse mare industry and about adopting a foal you can go to their page. Read more.
