SHERR's MISSION- Safe Haven Equine Rescue & Retirement is a 501(c)3 non profit that was founded to rescue horses in need of food, shelter, and medical attention due to neglect or abuse in an effort to improve their quality of life. Further more, SHERR will provide a place or assist in finding a place of retirement for older horses that are unable to perform the tasks intended for them. 

Our Philosophy - Our philosophy is based on the belief that since we domesticated horses,we must take full responsibility for their life. SHERR’s goal is to find permanent placement with responsible loving adoptive homes for horses as companion riding mounts and retired pets. All of them need a home, a sanctuary.


Available for Adoption

Emma has been through her training and now is read for her new loving forever home. She is 7-8 years old, rides, loads, stands for vet, ties and has had all her vaccinations, coggins and wormed.

Emma who is a gaited mix (?) will make someone a great horse, she can be a bit bossy in the pasture to others and she also tends to throw her head a little while in halter, she has perfect ground manners. She is ridden in an Indian hackamore (no bit) and she is gaited so her walk feels faster like she is ready to go, but she's not she is just walking. Serious inquires only if you are interested in Emma coming to be a member of your family please email
Her adoption fee is $300 For mor information please email SHERR or Gin Wiltsey.





Volunteers are in integral part of the SHERR NC. They come from many backgrounds and experiences, but all share a desire to help the forgotten horses. Duties range from office work to horse training. There is a job for everyone at the SHERR NC!
SHERR NC believes there is room for anyone interested in volunteering their time, whether a few hours a year or many hours a week. From grooming horses, fundraising or in a leadership role, we want volunteers to feel welcome and to work in their area of interest.
