The Marion Horses: News and Call for Help

Marion horsesHope for Horses representatives and volunteers met with the Higgins and Dr. Justin Jornigan January 21st and negotiated the release of 9 of the 21 horses on the Ashworth Road property in Marion. An agreement was also signed by both Hope for Horses and the Higgins to ensure the safety and well being of the 12 horses that will remain in the possession of the elderly couple.

The horses in critical condition are safe at Hope and will continue to be monitored by Dr. Ann Stuart in the coming weeks. Although the other horses are untrained and underweight, they will be available for immediate adoption to approved homes. This is a great time for our horse community to come together to change a long standing bad situation. For information on adopting or donating supplies to Hope, please call or email us directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

There Really is Hope for Horses!

Hope for Horses is available in Buncombe and surrounding counties by assisting in rescues and providing valuable rehabilitation and adoption services throughout Western North Carolina. Our goal is to find quality homes for the many unwanted, neglected and abused horses in the WNC area.

 Many of the horses that come to us are in poor condition - usually malnourished and often have had no handling in months or years. Hope for Horses works diligently to provide only the best care and quality of life to these beautiful and deserving creatures until they can be adopted. Often times meaning hours of time spent handling them and frequent, late night visits to the barn for extra small meals while a horse is being reintroduced to hay and grain.

As our Mission Statement spells out, Hope for Horses also provides education to potential adopters on what it takes to care for an equine, as well as informing the public about the permanent damage that is created by the neglect and abuse of horses.
