Gallop Into the Year of the Horse With Equine Volunteer Programs

The Lunar New Year has begun–this is the Year of the Wood Horse–a time of unbridled forward motion, unstoppable surging ahead after the last protected, shedding year (Year of the Snake). We are all galloping on, no longer stuck in stasis–ain’t no stopping us now. Can you already feel the forward momentum?

In honor of the New Year, here are some projects around the world where you can volunteer to save wild horses:

Horse Rehabilitation Program in Cintsa, South Africa—via Bridge Volunteers or Volunteer Global, caring for abused and neglected horses.

Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary in Hot Springs, South Dakota—helping support rescued Mustangs rounded up by the government and transferred to these protected acres.

Lifesavers Wild Horse Rescue in Twin Oaks, California

Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue in Mount Airy, Maryland

Pacific Equine Friesian Rescue in Paso Robles, California

Cleveland Armory Black Beauty Ranch/Doris Day Horse Rescue in Murchison, Texas

…and a great resource to discover more equine volunteer programs in many locations, via EquiSearch
