Falcon Ridge Equine Rescue Inc

Welcome

Welcome to FalconRidge, a non-profit, humane equine organization, sanctuary, rehabilitation and training center for the horse. Nestled in the rolling foothills of North Valley Center in 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 five years.

...And here my story ends. My troubles are all over, and I am at home; and often before I am quite awake, I fancy I am still in the orchard at Birtwick, standing with my old friends under the apple-trees.

Horses arrive to FalconRidge from all states in the country. 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. See our available horses »

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.

This program is made possible by a grant from the ASPCA
