Companion Horses

Our companion horses include horses that have been retired from working, showing, and/or trail and pleasure riding. Companion horses have much to offer: a friend to a lonely horse, a gentle mount for small children, or a family friend who will touch your soul and make you smile.

Older horses many times require extra care but can remain healthy into their elder years.  Our companion horses cover a range of ages but are considered "unrideable" and "companion only" due to an injury or medical condition of some sort.  They often require special diet, medication, or special farrier care.  We believe companion horses fill an important role in the horse/human world - one that reflects their gregarious and generous spirit because they can be your best friend, healer, and confidant...... even with ailments.

Give us a call to set up an appointment, we would love to see you. We believe in giving an honest assessment, so the perfect horse can be matched to your lifestyle, home and heart. We are located in 5 miles west of Canyon, Texas.

He is currently in our Volunteer Program and has become a favorite because of his gentlemanly personality. Due to some skin sensitivity issues that make it painful to ride, Cochise is no longer rideable. He has been in the Led By Horses program and been a real champion. Cochise will make a wonderful companion for another horse and is ready for his new home.

Nix-Pending

Nixon.Face.jpg
 

Nix is a 9yo mini horse who came to the Rescue from Potter County in July 2016. He arrived at the Rescue as the typical spitfire mini and quickly learned his place. He received a kick from a horse, which broke his jaw, therefore, he spent several months recuperating. He has healed very nicely, and does well now in the herd. Nix is very loving, gentle, and full of life. He would be a great addition to any family!
