Indiana Horse Rescue is the Equine Division of Animal Protection Coalition, Inc. a 501(c)3 non profit public charity dedicated to animal welfare. We are Indiana's largest equine rescue operation. We house and care for horses in need 24/7 and pride ourselves in providing quality care to those horses that are in search of a new permanent home. IHR frequently works with Animal Control and Law Enforcement officers on abuse and neglect cases where equine are in need of being impounded, rehabilitated, and re-homed.  We also accept horses from individuals that can no longer provide a home for their horse. IHR is an ALL breed horse rescue, we have no limits to the age, breed, gender, etc. of horses needing to come in.  IHR is not state funded.  We are funded solely on the generosity of individual donors like you and fundraising efforts and events.  Please help the horses.   Donate today.  Better yet, pick your favorite below and  Sponsor A Horse.

Gypsy has come back to us as she was on foster.  She would be a great one to teach to drive - or just as a companion.  Great girl!!

Daisy is a new pony that has come in - watch for updates!!  Wow!  This girl is awesome.  Recommend at least a 1st year 4H kids.  She rides bareback and saddled - unfortunately we don't have a small enough saddle for her at this time.  We have a 1st yr 4H girl riding her with a halter and two lead ropes, bareback and doing great!  She stands tied, leads, loads, stands for farrier - just a great all around pony.  We believe she is a hackney type pony - who is also said to drive.  Approx 15 years old and 12 Hands tall!

Bonsai - mini

This guy also came from Animal Control, he is a 4 yr old stud colt and will have to be gelded prior to adoption.  He is easy to handle due to his size (A mini with no papers) but has no obvious training.  He is adorable and has a cute little trot - so we hope to have him gelded and available soon!

7/11/17 - Bonsai has now been castrated/gelded - he is available for adoption!

Sonny n Cher

These two have just come in from Animal Control and will have to go through quite a bit of rehab before we can do any real work with them.  We can say they lead, load, and bathe so far.  Cher does not like dewormer, but Sonny took it the dewormer just fine.  We know they need dental work, so that may be Cher's issue with her mouth, we don't know yet.  They will be up to date on vaccines, go through a total deworming regiment and have dental and farrier work done before they are available for adoption.  These two are both lovers and will be available individually.  Sonny is the more spotted of the two and he is a gelding, while Cher is a mare.

Geronimo came from the Grant County seizure several months ago.  He is an absolute beautiful fellow!  He is approx 17 years of age, he catches, leads, loads, stands for the farrier, saddles, stands to be groomed - we are working on seeing what he knows about riding so will have to update that.  This boy was gelded but prior to that he was still a gentleman!  He handles well!

He has come back from the trainer, I'll post pictures soon of him being ridden on trails - They say he did fantastic!!
