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.

Doyle was born April 12, 2017 this colt is not technically a year old yet.  He has been handled since coming back to the rescue from foster and is quite the mischievous colt and ALL boy.  He catches, leads, ties, picks up his feet.  He is going to be much bigger than his dam but will still be considered a B Mini.  He is a little darling and loves attention.

Marilyn is approx 11 years old is approx 34-35" and she is broke to drive.  She has not been driven in some time so will need a refresher.  She has been used as a broodmare in the past and is now ready for a different life.  She isn't what we would call a kids horse, she is ready to go to work and is calm for work.  Not the lovey dovey type that just loves to be doted on.  That is her previous foal Doyle who is now weaned and ready for adoption also.

Magic is an approx 20 yr old gelding who is approx 40" tall.  He is well broke for an experienced rider.  He is content to be a pasturemate and gets along with all other mares and geldings of any size.

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!

Copper is approx 13 years old and is a been there done that type of horse.  He leads, loads, stands for grooming, farrier and rides.  He is currently at a foster home so you ,must have an approved application to go see him.  Copper is a Quarter Horse-type, 15 hands.  Copper is generally a relaxed, cooperative guy and not spooky. He ties, leads at the walk and trot, and crosses obstacles like poles and tarps. He stands quietly for grooming and tacking. He stood still for mounting, had a prompt whoa and displayed a smooth jog. He was balky about moving forward, but he did not offer to bolt, buck or rear. Copper is a cribber and seems to do best when given considerable turnout time on grass pasture. He is easy to catch and gets along well with other horses.
Copper is available for $750.00 - get your application in now!!
