Cowboy came to us with his companion Nadia. Cowboy was in good health except for his feet. With careful and dedicated farrier work he has made great progress with us.

Misty

  • Foaled: 1990
  • Sex: Mare
  • Breed: Quarter Horse

  • Rescue Status: Sponsor Needed / Adoptable / Fostered Off Site

Don't let the name mislead you - Misty is a crystal-clear farm favorite. Originally rescued from a local auction, she was later surrendered to RVR by her owner, emaciated and with her teeth in poor condition. But nothing could keep this pretty girl down, and with lots of care and attention through the Barn Buddies program she has risen to new levels of confidence. Gentle and affectionate, she's the perfect companion horse or backyard buddy for someone willing to give her the love she deserves.

Moon

  • Foaled: February 2015
  • Sex: Colt
  • Breed: Paso
  • Color: Bay ·
  • HH: 10hh ·
  • Rescue Status: Sponsor Needed. Available for adoption!

Moon was brought to RVR after a concerned citizen stepped in to help him. Moon was born with a cleft palate and has a hole in his soft palate. This birth defect has caused Moon to struggle to gain weight and flourish. Veterinarians have determined that surgery would not be best for Moon. He has adjusted well and has learned to adopt for eating and drinking. This little guy is a survivor. He loves to play with toys. He is very affectionate and loves to be groomed.

Freddy

  • Foaled: 2007
  • Sex: Gelding
  • Breed: Paso Fino
  • Color: Bay
  • HH: 
  • Rescue Status: Sponsored / Adoptable

Are you ready for Freddy? This shy, sweet boy was found, scared and emaciated, in a dog cage in someone's back yard before he was rescued. But far from belonging in the dog house, this little gentleman takes direction very well and exhibits excellent ground manners while on walks. Still uneasy around loud and sudden movements, he has gained lots of confidence through our barn buddy program and continues to come out of his shell. Though he is unsound for riding, Freddy has made a permanent place in the hearts of many and we would love to see him go to the forever home he deserves. Could that be you?

  • Rescue Status: Sponsored / Adoptable

Chancey came to RVR when her previous owner was done with her. She was abused, neglected and starved. Chancey was abused so badly that she suffered neurological problems and needed regular chiropractic care to be comfortable. Chancey can never be ridden due to the abuse she endured. She will make a great pasture pal and companion horse. 

Kimie

Kimie was found in an industrial park emaciated with shoes falling off her feet. The workers of the park contacted RVR Horse Rescue for help. We rushed over to find Kimie standing there. It was amazing she was alive. We brought Kimie back to RVR where our farrier was waiting to tend her her feet. Kimie has called RVR home since that day. She is a very sweet girl who is quite the clown. Kimie isn't sound to ride anymore but would make a nice pasture pal for a family.

If you're looking for a sweet, quiet horse to build a relationship with, River Rose is the one for you! This expressive girl endured a great deal of trauma while being kept at an illegal slaughterhouse, but that hasn't stopped her from shining. A tad bit timid, but very social once she feels comfortable, she loves hanging out in her stall, getting rubbed on, and anything carrot flavored. Tested under saddle and was a dream, she is  full of love to give, this is one rose that has blossomed in spite of her past - and we can't wait to see her grow with the right forever home!
