My daughter Jen has been going to the KISS therapeutic riding program at Hope for Horses for three years. She is nonverbal, has autism and epilepsy, and she absolutely loves going for her ride on Parker each weekend! When she knows the weekend is here, she gets her helmet to let me know she is ready to go ride! She gets quite a workout when she decides she is ready to do some two-point with Parker! Her lesson is on Sunday mornings, it can be an exercise in patience waiting for time to go. Jen's absolute favorite time is the "trail ride" at the end of each lesson! We are both so appreciative of the opportunity Jen has to spend with Parker and the folks at Hope for Horses.
Anita and Hope For Horses are the best. After a bad experience Anita was there for me.
I picked up Set Dancer "Set" from Anita and put him in 30 Days training. These pictures are when we got him home. Set loves his new home and Thanks to Hope For Horses and Anita I am a horse person and horse lover for life.
I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone.
Thank You Again
I love love love H4H!!! Works cannot describe how amazing the work they do is. I adopted a young OTTB Gelding from them in 2016 and he has gone on to have a very happy career and spoiled life with his new owner! I loved working with Anita and it was clear she she cared so much about every horse that came through her doors. When I'm ready for another project I will 100% go back to H4H. There is nothing more rewarding than helping a horse realize it's potential and find the right match!!
Both of my horses are from Hope for Horses. I couldnt have had a better experience. So good in fact, several of my friends followed suit. Anita does her best to do right by the horses and humans. A bigger heart can not be found.
I got both of my beautiful girls from Hope For Horses. Anaita has a heart of gold and takes good care of the horses while she has them, finds them good homes, and is a wealth of knowledge of which she is very generous so you and your new horse will be suscessful. Anita is the angle on the shoulder of many many lucky horses.
We have used Hope 4 Horses many times and refer anyone looking for a horse to them. Our horse, Sparkle, came to their organization with an umbilical hernia. It was repaired and we adopted her. She is a perfect addition to our herd!
Hope 4 Horses and Anita make aninals their top priority. I have a rescued off the track thoroughbred that was unhandle-able by many trainers (sent to slaughter by his prior owner).They see him as a piece of cake. They love him and care for him as if he is their own. And all the while tireless pulling animals out of harms way and doing everything they can to make every animal count. They truly love and care.
Thank you for bringing Paris into our lives ❤️. Such a blessing!
Paris’ handsome baby “Frog” is up for adoption. Anyone who is interested should take a look...
Adopted two Wonderful horses from Hope for Horses. I have such admiration for the time and work put into them prior to them coming home. I have the utmost respect for their process bto make sure it's nothing less than a perfect fit.
Hope for Horses is a special place that helps a lot of people and a lot of horses!
I started volunteering at Hope for Horses after I lost my big off the track thoroughbred boy in tragic circumstances. Anita invited me to come out and work with her, helping to train and tune up other off the track rescues. It has been a great experience and Anita is wonderful with pointers and advice.
It's definitely a special place!
I have a ridden a few horses that my trainer has gotten from Hope for Horses. I just have to say I fell in love with these gorgeous horses! They are some of the most naturally talented, quiet and best disposition young Thoroughbreds that I have worked with. They just want to please and be your best friend. I think it is absolutely fantastic that this organization helps these big hearted animals find a second career and matches them with the perfect opportunity for them to show their full potential!
We received multiple amazing horses from Hope For Horses. The people behind this nonprofit are super easy to work with and truly want to see the best situation for everyone involved. We could not be happier; thank you Hope For Horses!
I can’t say enough good things about hope for horses! I have been a professional in the horse world for 11 years on both the east and west coast, I appreciate their honesty and knowledge of horses. They have connected us with some one in a million horses. Our horses are exactly what they said they would be. I am so thankful to have been able to work with and support this non-profit. This is the kind of honesty our horse community needs! Highly recommend!!!
Anita, founder of Hope 4 Horses, is amazing and is in it for the long run. She works tirelessly for the horses. Volunteers can not only learn but enjoy hands on experience. I believe that she is fiscally responsible in the management of this organization. Personally, she was there immediately when I needed her regarding a rescue horse. This is not a sanctuary for horses. It is an organization to rehab and train horses for just the right person waiting for them. If you are interested in learning about The Horse, come volunteer and watch this amazing woman and other staff.
Volunteering with Hope 4 Horses in Galt, California for the past year-and-a-half brings me great satisfaction. The work I do there, whether cleaning stalls or assisting with adaptive riding lessons, makes a positive difference to the horses, the students, and my community. Not only do I get to be around horses on a regular basis, I also learn more about horsemanship and about myself every time I'm there. The H4H Board members and the other volunteers are a wonderful group who support each other in observing safe horse-handling practices as well as engaging in activities to enhance the H4H programs.

Amazing organization! Horses care and rehabilitation are a top priority at Kiss ranch. Every time I've been to Kiss for lessons and or clinics I leave with admiration for what Anita and all the volunteers do to meet the needs of our equine friends. The care and rescue of an animal in need is their priority, as I've witnessed countless times. HOpe for Horses marshals help; resets their schedule to meet an animals need.
I had spent many years volunteering for a small animal sanctuary but when that ended I decided to return to my first love, horses. I found Hope 4 Horses on line and went out to investigate. What I found was a group of wonderful caring people and an organization that makes a difference everyday in the lives of the many horses who live there.
Hope For Horses is an outstanding organization that is operated by people who make the long term welfare of the animals first priority. Anita, who founded and runs it, is able to provide each animal in her care whatever that particular individual needs to heal, learn, or overcome any hardships to become a happy, healthy being. For each animal ready to start their new lives, she uses her people skills, large network of connections and incredible matchmaking talents to find them perfect homes. Hope For Horses consists of people who have an amazing understanding of horses, outstanding horsemanship skills and who are constantly educating themselves to excel even more and continue to improve.
Hope 4 Horses is so much more than a horse rescue! You can get riding lessons - for able-bodied riders of all ages and experience levels, or for those with special needs. You can meet all kinds of horses from Polyanna, the mini, to Lazarus, the Percheron and everything in-between. You can board your horse if you have one, and if you don't, Anita will match you up with your perfect horse - or you can sponsor a horse in need of his own special person. You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about horsemanship. You can even volunteer - with the therapeutic riding program, doing ranch work, office work, helping with special events, etc. You can meet some wonderful people who are as knowledgeable as they are dedicated to what they do and you'll have fun while you're at it!
