Thank you for visiting our fundraising page!
Horse Helpers of the High Country is a non-profit, 501c3 organization, serving Watauga, Ashe, and Avery Counties in North Carolina’s High Country as well as Johnson County in northwest Tennessee. Our mission is to “ give abused and neglected horses a second chance.” We rescue equine from a variety of difficult environments; provide physical and emotional rehabilitation; find them compatible, loving homes, and finally monitor the equine in that home during his or her lifetime. In addition, we provide a strong education component teaching about equine abuse and providing opportunities for all interested people to grow in their love, skill, and understanding of horses.
Our organization offers a couple of unique opportunities for people to become better acquainted with HHHC and the animals we care for:
• Our Farm Tours are an excellent opportunity to meet the horses, learn their stories and see their progress. Included in the tours are details about what a rescue actually does and how we help a horse go from starved, abused, and frightened to a healthy addition to someone’s family. We offer students, youth organizations, and other groups the chance to touch, feed, brush and offer companionship to our four legged friends.
• One of our most unique programs are our Conflict Transformation Workshops. With the aid of horses, the workshops offer valuable insight on how to improve interpersonal relationships, communication, and leadership skills. Horses, of all domesticated animals, are the most attuned to our body language and emotions. To ask a horse to complete a series of tasks pushes us to better understand ourselves and our limitations and strengths.
