About Our Rescue Group:Horse Play is a non-profit organization that operates an equine rescue/sanctuary in Saunderstown, RI. Our equine sanctuary provides rescue and rehabilitation for abused, neglected, unwanted, and/or slaughter-bound horses. Many horses come to Horse Play because their owners can no longer afford to keep them, children outgrow or lose interest in them, some owners do not have the skills or knowledge to provide proper care and many horses are just considered “disposable” – if the horse isn’t winning, it goes to auction. Most of these horses also have health and/or behavior problems. We use humane, communication-oriented “teaching” methods in our training/retraining, provide quality vet care, feed and lots of love. Some horses are eventually placed in approved adoptive homes. Those horses who are “unplaceable” live out their lives at the Sanctuary. All life is sacred here.
It Is Our Intent:
To provide rescue, rehabilitation, and sanctuary services for abused, neglected, and/or unwanted horses.
To provide placement & follow-up services for rehabilitated horses and permanent sanctuary for horses that cannot be placed.
To help put an end to neglect and abuse through education, community outreach and awareness.
To develop and present educational programs and printed media, clinics and seminars on the responsible care, ownership and training of horses.
