Facts about Hildalgo

  • Breed: Other/Unknown Mix
  • Color: Paint
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Male
Hidalgo was taken in as an owner relinquishment as a result of a family move and subsequent placement that did not work out. Hidalgo's owner's had adopted him from another rescue about five years ago (circa 2011). He was reportedly a riding horse prior to rescue. Hidalgo had not been ridden in several years,

Hidalgo is a kind, gentle soul. Upon arrival, he evaded human approach and did not want to be haltered. He was difficult with handling hooves and farrier care, but since his hooves seem to be feeling better, he has relaxed and is warming up to AAE volunteers. He is approachable in pasture and his hoof care is becoming more easy with time. He will be evaluated under saddle once his hooves have a bit more time to recover and we are able to explore his ground skills and knowledge. More coming soon.

Hidalgo had dental and farrier work shortly after arrival. He was tender-footed on arrival, and his hooves were in need of attention, He now has shoes on front and seems to be doing much better. He is current with vaccines, deworming, and hoof and dental care.

Adoption fee subject to change based on training. Please refer to website for current information.

About All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) is a 100% volunteer-based, not-for-profit equine rescue and rehabilitation organization located in El Dorado Hills, California.

AAE was founded in 2009 as a result of the down economy and growing number of distressed and auction-bound horses. Our passion for horses and disdain for the reality of slaughter, neglect and abuse prompted our formation. Too many horses are being transported across US borders and commercially slaughtered each year, and many more inhumanely die each year from neglect, abandonment, abuse, or improper care. We wanted to make a difference.

“By saving the life of one horse, we may not be changing the world, but we are changing the world for that one horse.” Author unknown.

Our main facility is located in El Dorado Hills, California on the Digiorno family ranchette, a 14.3 acre property with a 7-stall barn, a hay/storage barn, paddock areas, and a large pasture area with a seasonal creek. In addition to the horses, there are resident goats, sheep, and chickens, as well as dogs (Bouvier Des Flandres) and cats.

Come Meet Our Pets...

AAE is not open to the public; HOWEVER, visits to meet the horses and see the facility can be scheduled by appointment. Please call or email for further information.

Our Adoption Process...

AAE prefers you take your time in choosing your horse. You are encouraged to visit the rescue (by appointment only) to spend adequate time interacting with a horse before making a decision, as it is important to assure an appropriate match. AAE has an adoption process that includes an application process, an adoption agreement, and payment of an adoption fee.

Adoption fees are based on a multitude of factors including the horses’s age, type, and health status, as well as training and experience. Adoption fees are one of AAE’s primary sources of funds for recouping some of the rescue and maintenance costs associated with our horses. Adoption fees are returned entirely to the program and used for supporting costs associated with ongoing care of existing horses and future rescue efforts.
