Welcome!

The REHRC is a 501c3 non-profit sanctuary dedicated to rehabilitating horses with hoof, health and behavioral problems.  

Equines come to the Rainier Equine Hoof Recovery Center to be treated for hoof ailments such as chronic laminitis and abscesses.  Horses find relief when their hooves start treatment using correct hoof trimming practices, as well as improvements in diet and environment.

Some of our horses came to us as serious starvation and neglect cases.  After arriving, we begin rehabilitating them and some have been placed horses into foster care - or permanent adoption, always offering to continue hoof care at no charge.

Today most of our horses are sanctuary horses.  Older horses that are living out their remaining days with us.  They still have value as pasture pals for other horses, or for kids to learn about caring for equine partners. 

We are in the process of building a new site and once that is done our site will be easier to navigate either from computers or smart phones. 

Thank you for visiting.  We operate on donations which are much appreciated.

Our Mission:  Rescue unwanted equines in need of hoof rehabilitation, and provide equines with chronic lameness a safe sanctuary and purposeful lives offering children and adults confidence-building lessons, as well as educating students of natural hoofcare.

Shoes are most "necessary" for hooves that have been damaged by shoes. Their use is archaic and steeped in an ignorant tradition that arose out of extreme selfishness. We have known this for at least 200 years now. The responsibility for our horses is coming to rightly rest with each of US now. If you choose to allow someone else to think for you and dictate tradition to your horses, YOU are the one responsible for the unsoundness in your horses. Empower yourself with what horses need to be sound--refuse to be victimized by tradition--move in to your happiness with your happy horses.  Tomas G. Teskey, DVM
