Since 2010 we have saved over 100 equines. We remain in contact with all of our adopters of our horses to ensure all equines that have passed through our rescue remain safe. We believe saving is the easy part and ensuring a “happily ever after” is true rescue. We provide all our horses with a safety net and will take back ANY horse adopted through our organization that may require an alternative placement.
Over 30 of our saves come from owner surrenders in our state of CT. We have been a resource to residents in our state who had to give up their equines due to financial restraints, untimely deaths and illness. We also work hand in hand with the CT Department of Agriculture taking in horses from active investigations and seized horses due to abuse and neglect within the state.

Partnership with Song Strong Sanctuary
In 2020, The Song Strong Sanctuary was created as a beautiful partnership between the Ethan Miller Song Foundation and All The King’s Horses Equine Rescue. The Sanctuary houses 7 equines rescued by All The King’s Horses Equine Rescue, along with 3 resident goats we rescued. All our equines remain available for adoption except for our one life long resident, Bugsy. We rescued Bugsy in 2018 from a livestock auction. Bugsy is in his 30’s and after a failed adoption we decided he deserved a forever placement at the sanctuary to help people heal.
In 2021 this partnership expanded to include Soul Friends. Soul Friends mission is to provide innovative clinical and educational programs that promote the healing benefits of the human-animal bond and nature therapy for at-risk children. At the Sanctuary we are currently providing individual equine assisted psychotherapy and grant funded group therapy. For a referral or intake to our equine assisted programs please contact Soul Friends at 203-679-0849.
In addition to equine assisted therapy we provide horsemanship lessons to ages 5 and up to continue our mission of educating the public on proper equine care. No horse experience is necessary to join. You will be taught the basics of grooming, leading, haltering, tacking, equine care/feeding, and the list goes on. We offer 30-minute sessions for a $30 donation or 60-minute sessions for a $50 donation. Please contact barn manager, Amanda Hughart at firstname.lastname@example.org
We also offer volunteer opportunities for ages 13 and up. Opportunities consist of mucking paddocks, stalls, help with fundraisers, help with feeding, watering, and grooming our equines. Please contact barn manager, Amanda Hughart at email@example.com for volunteer opportunities.
