Day one of Summer Horse Camp

A great big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed to the July horse trimming campaign. You made it possible to get all horses hooves trimmed. AND to the volunteers who helped on this near record HOT Mississippi summer day.

Coyote Hills Equine Rescue and Therapeutic Riding  is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating horses.

We are passionate about rescue and rehabilitation of horses and their role in rescue and rehabilitation of human hearts.
We are an organization fueled  by volunteers. Loyal volunteers and community donations are what keep this organization going.
Below is just one of 90 horses rescued since 2009 by Coyote Hills! The need is greater than can be imagined.

What We Do
    Horse rescue, unfortunately, is in demand far more than most people can imagine. Most rescues in Mississippi are full or slightly beyond capacity. We get calls almost daily reporting starving horses. Horse rescues in Mississippi work together when they get a call of 7,10,25 or more horses needing rescue. When all are at or usually beyond capacity, no one wants to turn their back on deplorable conditions of any horse, so phone calls are made to find placement. We are in desperate need for more land to expand our rescue capacity.
    Once noursished back to health and/or rehabed depending on what they went through before coming to the rescue, horses become available for adoption. Those who have sponsored a horse for at least 6 consecutive months have first claim to the horse. For those who have not sponsored a horse for at least 6 months, an adoption fee will apply and will be clearly posted on our website (coming very soon).
    Sometimes events out of an owner's control cause a situation where the owner can no longer care for their horse(s). When possible, we can take in a horse under voluntary surrender. In other cases, there are questionable intent of the adequacy or ability to care for a horse and legal action is about to ensue. In this instance, sometimes, the owner would rather give the horse over to a rescue rather than challenging the legal action.
    Sometimes horses need a forever home at the horse rescue. These are generally horses with special needs or very old, debilitated horses that are not adoptable but deserve to have a peaceful pasture to live out their lives. These horses still need sponsors and love. One example is Chance, one of the horribly infamous Copiah County Horse rescue where horses were dead and dying when found. Chance, an older horse could not go through starvation without permanent consequences. Chance is now blind. The heartwarming story is that Buddy, the other horse from Copiah County that came to Coyote Hills is his seeing eye horse. Buddy is protective of Chance. Chance depends on Buddy to "show" him where to go and what is safe! Both these horses have the absolute sweetest temperment. We plan to keep an ongoing blog of Chance and Buddy-coming soon.
    Sponsorship is when you meet the needs of a specific horse each month. This is a set amount. When medical bills or other surprise expenses come up, we look for grants and other contributions/fundraisers. In other words, you will not be surprised with a huge vet bill because you committed to sponsoring a horse. The horse stays at the ranch, stabled at ranch, and will continue to be fed, hayed, watered, and worked with including groomed, and ridden by ranch volunteers and used for fundraising events.
    Director Kim Blanton has several certifications in therapeutic riding. One certification is EAGALA-Equine Assisted Growth And Learning Association. Ms. Blanton is the only horse handler with this certification in our area. Working with a mental health professional, a horse handler works together in therapy sessions. PTSD, depression, OCD are a few of the conditions effectively treated with EAGALA. More infromation coming.
  1. Did you know? Approximately 150,000 horses from the US are inhumanely-- brutally slaughtered yearly. Slaughtered horses not only 1st witness horses in line ahead of them brutally killed, they then also die a slow agonizing death. If you want to learn more or get supporting documentation to these claims, this website is being developed and will soon be providing links to support these well known claims.
