About Maryland Horse Rescue
Based in Mount Airy, Maryland Horse Rescue was founded 18 years ago to address the need for a rescue that would take in horses from any situation. Our mission is to facilitate the rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of abused and abandoned horses in Maryland. We care for young, senior, blind, healthy, injured and healing horses. We specialize in senior and blind horses knowing some may be forever residents. However, we aim to adopt out each horse into loving, informed homes.
