Our Mission

Equine Outreach is dedicated to protecting and enhancing the quality of life of equines. We create a second chance for a good life and a second career for abused and neglected equines. We raise the standing of equines in our community through education and an introduction to the transformative power of horses. We also model compassion, speak out against animal abuse, and promote responsible equine guardianship.


Our Story

Equine Outreach, Inc. (EOI) was founded in 2004 as a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to horse rescue, shelter, and rehabilitation. To date, Equine Outreach has provided sanctuary for and rehomed over 800 equines. In 2017 a new Board of Directors assumed control and separated from the founder in order to improve financial management and refocus on rehoming horses, equine education, and community involvement. Groups from all over Central Oregon rallied to assist Equine Outreach with the move to a new location, building all the necessary facilities, and moving horses. Today, Equine Outreach operates in Bend, OR and is home to 18 horses and mules. We are managed and staffed by a dedicated team who care for the herd around the clock.
