Rescue Stories

Rescue Stories

Over the years, many horses and ponies have found a home with DHAPS for one reason or another and every one of them has a story behind their rescue.


It is wonderful to witness a horse come to us and then watching their road to recovery, but obviously  and very unfortunately, not every rescue has a happy ending, some are destined to cross the Rainbow Bridge. 


We feel privileged to have helped our rescues to recover and either find a new and happy foster home or for us to provide a forever loving home to the end of their days.  Here are a few rescue stories.

Without your help and support, we simply wouldn’t be able to continue to do what we do. To rescue and rehabilitate horses, ponies and donkeys and offer visits to those members of our community that really benefit from time spent with our animals. 

Your generosity makes this possible. Please help us to help them

Thank you from us all.
