Dress for success
As you get ready to visit, please keep in mind that the ground can be uneven and your good choice of walking shoes will help keep you steady as you wander from area to area. Add sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to your ranch-visiting gear too - that way you only return home with horse goodies, good deals, and happy memories, versus a sunburn, dry eyeballs, and a wind-chapped face.

Remember why Horse’n Around Rescue is needed
Cofounded by Theresa Warrell and Steve Boice, the Horse’n Around Rescue and its equine charges enjoy the use of nearly 1400 acres set in Hereford’s Miracle Valley neighborhood. Its sloping, deep grasslands stretch eastward of the Bob Thompson Peak in the Huachuca Mountains range.

As you enjoy the open house and give your love and attention to the 50+ animals, it’s good to remember that most Horse’n Around Rescue residents are victims of animal cruelty and neglect. They have been treated inhumanely, starved, neglected, abandoned, and abused. Often once animals become old, injured, or ill, the owners no longer have a need for them and wish to discard their “problem.” Equines can become a burden to their owners for a multitude of reasons -- poor economic conditions, an unexpected crisis like COVID-19, job loss, relocation, loss of interest, or personal issues such as sickness or death -- which results in a desperate need to find a home for their animals. Horses are being euthanized for convenience, sent to Mexico for slaughter, and turned loose on public and/or private lands to fend for themselves. Horse’n Around Rescue serves to fill these needs by offering a safe, nurturing place for these unwanted animals.

Today, more than 175 equines have been rescued from difficult circumstances and are living life in a pasture with room to roam. Each has ample and appropriate feed, unlimited fresh water, medical care, health maintenance, and lots of positive attention. Some will be adopted into new homes while others will have a forever home at Horse’n Around. To date, 104 horses have been adopted!

Volunteer opportunities
Horse’n Around Rescue is run 100% on volunteer power because it has no paid staff! If you want to have a good time, don’t mind getting dirty, and want to help some amazing horses, this is the place for you to give your time, treasure, and talent.

Ask about its many volunteer opportunities during your visit or reach out for further details: or phone: Theresa, 520-266-0236, or Steve Boice, 520-907-8765
