Standing for the Humane Organization Representing Suffering Equines, H.O.R.S.E. of Connecticut is a nonprofit dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected horses. In addition to direct intervention, H.O.R.S.E. also maintains an ongoing commitment to educate the public about horse care with regular, on-site seminars and guest lectures throughout the area. The public is welcome to visit and volunteer (preferably with one to two days notice), or bring carrots and apples to their annual Christmas Open House on Dec. 8!
