Zen Horse Rescue is a 501c3 Non-Profit started by a loving group of volunteers in South Florida that is making a difference, not only in each horse we save but in every person, that is saved.

Our mission is dedicated to providing safe refuge and permanent care for unwanted/abandoned Florida horses.   Some of our horses continue to give by dedicating their remaining years to becoming therapy horses while other horses are adopted (sponsored) by loving groups of people, who want to dedicate their time to giving these horses the love, serenity and ZEN that we have created with this program.    These amazing adoptive parents come to give care, graze, ride and even socialize with friends and family at the stables and enjoy the company of fellow equestrian enthusiasts.

That's right our beautiful rescue is turning 32!

Dancing Autumn", "Ka-Ching", "CHING" aka"24 Karat"
Here is more about our boy:

"Ching" as he is affectionately known, is THE FIRST Zen Horse Rescue acquisition. It is from the love of him, that our mission was born He is a VERY senior horse, current age, 31 soon to be 32, this is about 95 in human years, but as we have known of exceptional people, he is an EXCEPTIONAL horse.
He was started as a thoroughbred on the race track, but soon determined to be a brilliant horse with a good ability to dance and went on to be a champion dressage horse. He has the distinction of being named "HORSE of the year in 1993 and 1994, the highest of honors. He competed for many years and had three previous owners. Ching, "24 Karat..." was almost at the OLYMPIC level of dressage, as an "I2" level competitor.
He came to Sunshine Meadows and is known to many at the barn in early 2008. His owner competed him lightly in his later years and he was her joy, until her passing in 2014. She told the barn and everyone who knew them that Ching was provided for in her will. Unfortunately, although he was her beloved champion and partner, her husband defied her wishes and planned to put this vital horse to death. As the first ZHR member, Ching has spent his first 2 years of retirement as a recreational ride, a star of many photographs, and MOST importantly--An Equine therapy horse. He is our STAR.
