Horsinalities 101

Animal assisted programs recognize the bond between humans and horses and the potential for emotional healing when the two create a bond.

Horse Rescue

We have rescued, rehabilitated and placed several horses that were abused, neglected, or headed for slaughter.  These horses are now thriving thanks to the dedication of CVMR’s members and friends.

Horse Rescue

A one year old colt Buckskin arrived at the Coachella Valley Horse Rescue ranch on September 05,2015. He is settling in quite well at our ranch after a long haul from Fallon Nevada. He was out bided and saved from being purchased by kill buyers who wanted to profit by sending horses to slaughter. He was given a second chance on life! 

Scouting Programs

Local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops have completed and are currently working on several projects at our Ranch.  This enables them to fulfill the requirements and obtain their badges.

  • People come and go but horses leave hoof prints on your heart.
  • When people say it’s JUST a horse, they JUST don’t understand…
  • If you haven’t fallen off a horse…then you haven’t been ridin long enough.
  • My favorite breed is RESCUE.
  • I've often said there's nothing better for the inside of a man than the outside of a horse.
  • When people say it’s JUST a horse, they JUST don’t understand…
  • Will is to grace as the horse is to the rider.
  • Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people.

A bit about our team...

Here is a quick summary of what we do and plan for the near future:

We work closely with other non-profit organizations in our community and enrich their programs.  This includes Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Desert Recreation District. Our goal is to expand our services to local schools by offering field trips to our ranch and facilitating animal cruelty prevention and education.  We also want to offer financial assistance to kids who otherwise couldn’t afford horseback riding lessons.  We would love to start working with the local YMCA and other organizations to enrich their summer and winter camps by offering our services.  The goal is to offer these services using rescued horses, which we rehabilitate and train.  We have sweet, loving miniature horses available for horse therapy.  We have hosted field trips for Special Needs children at our ranch and we participated with our miniature horses and pony in the Xavier High School Extravaganza fundraiser for Special Needs children and young adults.  What a special day that was!  Smiles all day long!
