About Our Rescue Group...
Welcome to FalconRidge, a non-profit, humane equine organization, sanctuary, rehabilitation and training center for the horse. Nestled in the rolling foothills of Valley Center in Northern San Diego County, FalconRidge Ranch was founded in 2002 in order to provide the care, rehabilitation, training and temporary or permanent home to unwanted, abused, neglected or slaughter bound horses.
The average number of rescued horses at any time at FalconRidge is over 50. Hundreds of horses have been saved, trained, housed, or rehomed by the equine charity in the last several years.
Horses arrive to FalconRidge from all of southern California. New arrivals get the proper veterinary care, nutrition, chiropractic, training, or surgery they need to improve their lives. Those horses whose lives have been saved from euthanasia, slaughter or from extreme neglect, will stay here forever. Some healthy sound horses have been donated or given up for various reasons and will be rehabilitated, trained and adopted out.
During rehabilitation, the horses are exercised and properly socialized with other horses and people. Some arrive extremely depressed, not wanting much to do with other horses or humans. Within months they have transformed into horses that play and interact happily.
It is the mission of FalconRidge Equine Rescue, Inc. to improve equine physical, emotional and mental well-being so that their lives are enriched, and they have a positive, healthy future.
Our Adoption Process...
Horses are matched with potential adopters after a screening process first by phone or email. No first time horse owners and we only adopt to owners who consider a horse a family pet just like a dog or cat.
Adoption procedures and available horses for adoption are on our adoptables blog,
