THERAPY HORSES

By Steve Edwards
Mill Swamp Indian Horses (Virginia)

I try not to be too picky about words, but words do have meanings.

I do not like for my horses to be referred to as "therapy horses."

I do not object to the term because it suggests that there are
people out there who need horses for therapy.

Horses are therapy for whatever the problem is!

Over weight, high blood pressure? Ride
Back, knee, joint pain? Ride
Husband left you for another woman? Ride
Wife left you for another man? Ride
Hate your job? Ride
Got obnoxious kids? Ride
Got obnoxious parents? Ride

Is the problem such that riding is impossible?

- The Solution -
Brush, lead, handle a horse.

Sit and watch them in the pasture.
There are very few holes that exist that horses cannot plug.

Welcome to Road Apple Acres Horse Rescue! We sincerely appreciate your interest in our facility and how you can help us.

Our Mission

Prevention of cruelty to animals, especially horses.  Horses should have safety, peace, and dignity throughout their lives. Our commitment is to give them the respect, care, and love they deserve. 

Future Goals

Uniting Wounded Warriors with PTSD, troubled teens and underprivileged kids by bringing them and the horses together in a bonding, teaching and support-building experience.

Why Your Help is Important to Us!

Our first rescue here was 8 years ago. It is hard for us to ignore the conditions and training practices that put many horses in need of help.

Local hay prices and availability are always a constant, a stressful issue here in the Southwest desert ($12-$20 per bale). California dairies & Dubai (Saudi) have more buying power than many non-profit groups...like our small horse rescue project.

Funds generated go mainly for feed, haul water & veterinary care. If rehabilitated, horses are "re-homed" with a supervision clauses. Or sponsorships are available (horse stays here, public support donations help their care expenses.

Dignity is retirement here, to live out their days until time comes for a humane burial and not be subjected to a slaughter-bound Hell!

We presently only have 9 horses. The Board votes on acceptance, Negative Coggins quarantine and full ownership transfer of horse for R.A.A. So, if you have a heart to lend a helping hand, donate funds to this cause, you have our herd's heartfelt thanks!
