The Horses                                   The Mustang Refuge

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.


All horses are up to date on shots, farrier and deworming, we try to always have their teeth looked at, floated and examined by a chiropractor.

Zippy

Zippy has also come to the rescue in need of care.  He is getting his weight up, dental work, vaccines, deworming and some much needed farrier work.  We were told at one time he was used for penning and roping, but again that is not confirmed.  We will ride him after he is done with his medical and the weather permits.

Buddy

Buddy is a mule that came in due to a call from a humane society.  We know absolutely nothing about him although we suspect he is in his 20's, very easy to handle about 12-13 hands and appears to be easy to get along with.  We are getting his weight on, his teeth looked at and also adjusted if needed. 

Shaver

Shaver is currently not available until we can do some checking on him.  Very nice 12 year old gelding.  We will be having the chiropractor look at him along with the dentist and update with more information as we know it.

Denny

Denny is another horse that came with little to no information.  He is a QH type horse who we were told is very well broke and trail ridden.  We will ride him as soon as the weather permits!

Charlie is a wonderful old man that is extremely healthy!  We don't have a lot of information on him, however he does appear to be a pacer - as he even paces at a walk in the barn.  He is looking for a great home where he can possibly give the grandkids rides around the farm, teach them about caring for a horse, etc.  Great boy who we will ride if the weather and the ground ever gives us a chance!

Jethro

1/25/19 - What a surprise!  Jethro was sent out on foster as he was past the critical stages in his weight gain.  As he continued getting healthy, he started acting like a little stud/stallion.  Lo and behold, this young man had tucked his testicles up inside him, which is not unusual in neglect cases.  He will be coming back to the rescue so we can see that he is gelded properly prior to adoption!

Jethro came in with Tobias also from the auction.  He too has put on some much needed weight and passed his health check and has gone out on foster to continue receiving specialized care and get some much needed weight on.  He will soon be available for adoption.

Tobias came from an auction and had been owned/traded by a person who buys and sells horses and was not getting the care he so desperately needed!  He has been with us for several weeks and has now passed her health check and gone to foster to continue getting more weight.  He will be available soon!

Cowboy

Cowboy is a darling little miniature gelding who has come to us from Animal Control due to running at large.  He is a sweetheart but has gone to a group called Mini Doves where young girls learn to take care of, groom, feed and train so he is much more adoptable.  Watch for updates!

Toby

Toby is an 8 yr old non papered Arabian Gelding who is a doll.  Very smart, yet also gentle and has quite the personality.  We will update soon!  As nice as Toby is - and boy he is a super boy - he has Suspensory Ligament problems - probably DSLD and should only be used for small 50-75 pound children at a walk.  This will ensure he has a great life and is not over used.  He would be a great pasturemate if you are looking for one or a great addition to your herd for the kids or grandkids to learn to handle, groom and the basics of riding (at a walk).  For information on this boy - give us a call!!

Smokey came in with Flyer and we are working to get weight on both of them.  They are doing very well but still need time before we can begin evaluating.
