Mississippi Horses is a non-profit organization dedicated to rehabilitating, training and finding homes for abused and abandoned horses, as well as, assisting other horse rescue organizations, law enforcement and owners in need across Mississippi. Our network of volunteers consists of horse lovers from every walk of life as well as veterinarians, farriers, trainers, riders and many others. 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 horses in need, horse owners and other 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.
"Saving just one horse will not change the world, but surely it will change the world for that one horse."
YOU can help us win up to $25,000!! ASPCA is providing over $100,000 in grants to equine rescue organizations across the U.S.!! To be eligible rescues must have an event at their facility during April's Help a Horse Celebration. Due to recent storms and basic maintenance needs, we decided to have a work day. Twelve Oaks horse farm has been home to hundreds of abused and abandoned horses since 2008 and it's easy to get behind in routine chores and upkeep when you're taking care of that many horeses.
Trainer Michael McElveen will be bringing a couple of horses he's had in training for us, but most importantly, we want you to meet him and watch how he trains our horses. The demo will be from 1:00 to 3:00.
"The greatest way to help a rescue organization is to adopt a horse, if you can't adopt then foster, if you can't foster then please donate."
