Save a Horse Ride a Rescue

Rescue Costs and Donations needed -See adoption page for updates regarding horses available

 Rescuing a horse: Approximate routine costs involved

Bail/Broker fee: $200-800

Coggins, Health Certificate, fee to auction barn/broker: ~ 100 

Transportation from auction barn to rescue: $200-300

Vet check: $150

Medications (if needed): $50-100 (or up to several thousand depending on severity of illness)

Thus, just to save a horse we spend ~500-1000 dollars OR MORE

Farrier (every 7 weeks): $45-90 (barefoot/front shod)

Hay/grain/supplements per month: $200+

Shavings for horses stall: $25/month

worming/shots: $200 /year 

In general it costs at ~300 dollars a month to provide for a horse when averaging in expenses above over a year. If hay prices go up this can increase to 400 dollars a month PER HORSE. If we have 10+ rescues at a time you can do the math & understand our need to get donations and fundraise.
