Sending a horse to a rescue should be your LAST resort.
NEER North only considers horses in urgent need, whose owners have no other options for rehoming them and cannot keep them.
We do not accept horses that owners wish to surrender to us for other reasons, such as retirement, to replace with more advanced or younger horse, or to avoid euthanasia.
