A 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
Welcome to Western Montana
Equine Rescue & Rehab
Our organization opened in September of 2008 in
Corvallis to address the needs of in-crisis horses in western Montana. The
operation is based at the residence of the founder, though we have utilized,
and still do, generous foster caregivers. From the moment an equine arrives,
we tailor each horse's rehabilitation program to his/her needs. Each horse
receives specialized nutrition, veterinary care, training and hoof care.
Our organization has an adoption program to
place our residents once they are rehabilitated. Many go on to become trusted
saddle horses and others will live out their lives as pasture
companions. Regardless of their limitations or potential, all equines who
enter our gate find love, respect and care here.
Do you love spending time with gentle,
kind souls? 21 years young, Brock
is the sweetest guy!!! He is Super gentle and perfect for the farrier. Dental
done, which showed teeth not in the best condition due to unintentional
neglect over the years. He has no problem with a soft grass/alfalfa mix,
and lightly soaked supplements. Brock's Adoption Fee is $275 to approved
home. Thank you for your consideration!
was definitely in need of help, as you can see from his photo's at

JAKE: Hi, I'm Jake, and I need a new place to
be, even just for a little while. I got moved from my home and my
friends, feeling displaced. I'm 17, kind of average height (15 hh). I'm
a good boy, try hard to please, good manners. I was abused when I was
younger, pretty protective of my hind end these days, but I could learn
to trust a human again if they were patient and I could trust them. I
enjoy trail riding, don't really care for arena work but could once in
awhile. I got my physical and teeth done yesterday so ready to go! Do
you have a place for me? Adoption Fee is $300.00 OR Apply to Foster.
UPDATE: Jake is
going to live with Heather Holt and be a needed companion for "Little",
aka "Cinnamon" (whom we rescued two
years ago) who is mourning the loss of her beloved "grandpa"
Kit. Stay tuned for more photo's!
SISSY: Are you a true horseman looking for the
"perfect match" in an equine partner? Look no further! Sissy is a 2008
registered QH red dun mare, 15.1 hh. We just cannot say enough good
things about her (If she were a gelding for sale on the open market,
he'd be priced at $3500-$4000). Due to her owners health issues, she
loved Sissy enough to let someone else have the pleasure of owning
her. Sissy came with NO BAGGAGE, responsibly and well cared for with
good foundation training under saddle. She likes people, wants to be
with you and pays attention to you. She does not over react to
anything. Stands quietly for mounting at a mounting block, doesn't move
until asked. Sissy is very intelligent, wicked smart, enjoys doing a
variety of things (clinics, following cattle, trail rides and so
on). She has minimal experience with trail riding, great to ride off
alone, not herd bound. She has good feet and is perfect for the farrier. Videos
under saddle available on request. Teeth floated, UTD on
worming/vaccinations. Adoption Fee $2,000.00.
PENNY: New Arrival! "Penny", 2012 registered QH
buckskin mare, isn't she lovely? In training as of tomorrow, we will
keep you updated!
ISO TRAILER: Have you
retired from riding and no longer in need of your trailer? We are
urgently in need of a stock type trailer, bumper pull or gooseneck. Tax
deductible receipt, value not over $5,000.00 but must be in good, SAFE,
usable condition. Please email us at
email@example.com. Thank You in
FOSTER HOMES NEEDED: If you
would like to help us help a horse, on a temporary basis, we are seeking
10 foster homes in our LOCAL area, or within 250 miles of the Bitterroot
Valley of western Montana. You might be needed for one or more horses,
for two days or up to a maximum of three months. All needs are provided
unless you are in a position to provide something. Safe fencing (no
barbed wire), shelter, dry lot and/or pasture (depending on the needs of
the horse and time of year), time and attention are a must. Foster
information can be found on our website under the ADOPT/FOSTER page.
