Rescue horses come in all shapes and sizes and from many different back grounds. In our eyes a "rescue" is any horse who is in need of care or a fresh start.
Our goal for these horses is to provide a loving, caring environment where they can live their lives in a happy and healthy setting, as it should be. All horses rescued by MEC will be given the second chance they deserve. We will make every effort to find each horse a loving forever home. Any horse that can not be place will remain a loved member of the MEC family.
Please take a look at our current rescues who bring us constant smiles and unconditional love everyday. ***
Jasper Available for Adoption or Lease
Jasper was surrendered by his elderly owner do to health reasons. This lovely registered Quarter Horse has lived a bit of a pasture puff life so we have begun working to bring him back into shape, and what an amazing guy he is! Jasper goes english, bitless, out on trail alone and in a group as well as started over baby crossrails.
Meet our sweet little "Bug" This amazing little girl went through possibly 2 auctions before being bailed out. She is approximately 7/8 years old and has adjusted to all the love and attention people as well as the other horses bestow on her. She has become a wonderful companion and friend to many of the other horses. She's the first one to alert everyone with a loud and enthusiastic whinny when I open the doors first thing in the morning.
Gwendalyn is a stunning 16 year old Dutch Warmblood surrendered by her owner due to training limitations that were no fault of her own. We have found with some time to adjust, consistent training and confidence building this beautiful sweet girl can do anything!
CONGRATULATIONS on your adoption of Gwendalyn!!
We have found the best home possible for Gwendalyn! Alyssa is one of those homes we try so hard to find for all our rescues. Wishing them many years of happy warm horsey kisses.
Dexter is currently Leased
What can we say? Just look at that face, how could anyone not love him? Dexter has been rescued by a team of loving people. The first was from a feed lot in Western PA, from there to VT and then to us.
What a handsome boy!
We were told that he is a Belgium Quarter Horse Paint cross. Put all that together and you get the sweetest horse you will ever meet in the perfect size body, not too big or too small, he's just RIGHT!
Congratulations MJ on your adoption of Edison!
We've done it again, we have found the best home possible for one of our rescues! MJ is one of those homes we try so hard to find for all our rescues We wish them many years of happy trails, Hunter Paces and warm horsey kisses.
Clark Kent. Permanent Sanctuary Resident
Our lovely Superman! This wonderful gelding is turning 30 years old this year, but don't let his age fool you! He is always one of the first to nicker at you when you walk into the barn and will stand for hours to be groomed and loved on.
As you can see Clark was quite underweight when we had first met him. In his long lonely life with his previous owner, we were told he had only been seen by the vet twice, had his feet trimmed professionally twice, and has never had his teeth done. We were concerned with bombarding Clark with all of these important tasks in his first week but this old man was a champ! He took everything in stride and never batted an eye.
The past few weeks have been a whirlwind for Clark - he successfully had his teeth done and finished a round of antibiotics, had his feet trimmed and abscesses treated, and is slowly gaining weight! We cannot wait to see what the future has in store for him!!
Update: October 23, 2021
It is with a heavy heart that we had to say goodbye to our dear 36 year old Clark Kent. Our very own Superman was one in a million He endured so much and overcame every obstacle. We are honored to have shared these past six years together and although we are deeply saddened we know Clark was so love by everyone that knew him and he will always be. RIP dear Clark Kent. 1985 - 2021
Bogart "Beau" ADOPTED!!!!
Bogart! The first thing most people say when they see Beau is "that's a big horse". He is quite tall, approximately 16.2 hands, but the height isn't what makes him, it's that big Warmblood frame!
This 16 year old Oldenburg X Warmblood is a good example of one of our rescues who just needed a new start. Beau and his previous owner had high hopes of upper level showing but unfortunately that was sidelined due to injury. Relocated to a small backyard barn Beau was able to rest and heal, but as time passed he needed a new job!
Beau is now slowly getting back into working and has settled really well into his new routine here at MEC. ! We have no doubts with a little more work and maybe a few less peppermints (this gelding loves to eat!) there are great things for him in the future!
Congratulations Jodie and Bogart!!
Update: January 2020
Jodie and Beau are officially a family. It warms our heart when one of our rescues finds his person, and Beau won the love Lottery finding Jodie!
Anderson "Andy" Permanent Sanctuary Resident
Little Andy is a 27 year old quarter horse with a big personality. His owner fell on hard times and could no longer afford to care for him. We offered to help and provide a warm loving home that can give him the care and attention he requires.
Anderson's future is a bright one! Our goal for Andy is to be happy, healthy and always feel loved!
Anderson is our bitless wonder! He still thinks he's a teenager, running around the big field with the young OTTBs and teaching them his Quarter horse ways. He's such a wonderful little horse, responsive to your seat and leg. We believe Andy was once also trained to go Western as well. He neck reins like a charm and has that smooth lovely jog.
