Facts about Hopi

  • Breed: Appaloosa Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 12-059-M
Hopi is one of the November Rescue Miracle mares (Mare #11). She arrived in late March 2012 with a yearling colt, Turner, at her side. Hopi was extremely fearful of humans, unapproachable, and extremely sensitive and reactive. She had little to no handling, and likely a bad human experience. She arrived with a skin condition around her eyes, and due to her extreme reactiveness, evaluation has been a slow process.

Hopi has been working with a trainer (Mike V.) off and on for the last year and then some, and she is making slow, steady progress. She will stay on with Mike and continue training until her person comes along, at least for now. Hopi will require an advanced handler with substantial experience training from the ground up, and Mike offered to work with her and prospective adopter to ensure a successful future. She has not been started under saddle, and she is not suitable as a child’s horse at this time.

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.
