Horse Rescue

Brook Hill Farm is committed to providing a safe harbor and rehabilitative focused services for abused, neglected, and injured horses. As of today, the farm has helped rescue, rehabilitate and place over 500 horses.

Despite all they do for us, tens of thousands of horses fall victim to abuse and neglect each year.  Many horses are shipped across our borders to be slaughtered. Rescue organizations are full, and cannot take in all that need help.  It is only by all of us working together that we can solve this problem.  Brook Hill Farm is one of only a small percentage of rescues in the nation that is fully accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance.  Brook Hill Farm provides a safe haven and excellent care for all of the horses accepted to the farm.  Most of the horses come from seizures and owner surrenders.  Brook Hill Farm is proud to serve as the local animal shelter for horses for Bedford County.  Images like the ones above are real horses needing help.

Together, look what we have done for these Horses!

At Brook Hill Farm, Veterinarians, a professional Farrier, Dentist, Staff, and dedicated volunteers all come together to help all of the horses, creating and executing a rehabilitation plan uniquely tailored to each horse’s needs.

Besides being a sanctuary for horses needing rescue due to lack of nutrition, Brook Hill Farm focuses on lame horses. The bad news is that lame horses are rarely purchased by horse enthusiasts, and the majority of these horses never have a chance.  Sadly, the current economic conditions and urban growth mean that the number of these horses in danger is dramatically increasing.

Piper came to Brook Hill Farm with a nail injury all the way through her coffin bone!  See if you can find the hole in her bone.  Look for the small dark circle close to the end of the red arrow.  With excellent vet care and lots of rehabilitation, Piper is now sound and is working in our programs!

Who knew that this wonderful horse could heal from a broken sesamoid bone, recover and resume his Eventing career!

And who would believe that this Arab who was found eating lettuce and potatoes would end up being a famous painter!

When we all work together, we can help save these magnificent animals!
