Laughing Pony Rescue

Each of the horses under care at the nonprofit Laughing Pony Rescue has been saved from abandonment, sickness, or an abusive situation. Responsible for the rehabilitation of more than 300 horses, Laughing Pony Rescue educates the public, trains horses and humans, and gives these noble creatures a happy home. Visitors can share in the communal spirit through group horse hugs or the ranch’s assortment of activities, which include lessons and trail rides as well as therapeutic riding.
