Welcome to the Mustang and Wild Horse Rescue of Georgia. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing a program for wild horses captured by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wild horse roundups. We are located in Georgia in the Canton area. MWHR is committed to providing a safe haven for previously owned mustangs and wild horses that are no longer wanted by their adopters or those who have been abandoned, abused or neglected by their owners. MWHR gentles and rehabilitates the horses they rescue to so they can be successfully re-adopted by new owners. MWHR’s goal is to obtain land in the near future to provide a sanctuary for unadoptable mustangs. It is also devoted to raising public awareness of the plight of wild horses and burros and why saving these Living Legends is critical to our nation. MWHR hopes to inspire others to become involved in their worthy cause. MWHR is run entirely by volunteers; donations and interest are always welcome and greatly appreciated. For more information about MWHR and for our mission statement see our “About MWHR” page.
Feel free to drop by and say hi at any of our upcoming events posted on the MWHR calendar!
I know we sound like a “broken record” but we have some many people to thank for their support last weekend in making our Tack Thing Event and Silent Auction a huge success during the Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show. We’d like to give a special “thank you” to our friends at the new Chick-fil-A at Avalon for donating 50 chicken sandwiches plus a whole bunch of breakfast coupons for our volunteers and MWHR supporters last weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!
MWHR would also like to thank our friends at Trader Joe’s in Roswell for donating some amazing snacks for our volunteers and MWHR supporters at the Tack Thing Event last weekend during the Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show. We are so grateful for the support of businesses in our community.
MWHR is truly grateful to everyone who supported us last weekend at our Tack Thing Event & Silent Auction during the Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show. We are thrilled to announce that we raised $3,300 for MWHR which will go towards caring for the mustangs located at our Canton, GA facility. Thank you to all our dedicated volunteers who worked tirelessly before and during the event and to all our supporters who made this event a huge success!!!
Big “thank you” to Bella and Buck, and the whole Rosado family, for supporting MWHR on Friday afternoon. Former MWHR mustang, Buck, and his adopter, Bella, got to show off their obstacle challenge skills at the Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show. They did a great job!
MWHR would like to give a very special thank you to the Bennett family, especially Caitlyn, for supporting MWHR this past weekend at the Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show. Caitlyn and Hocus Pocus showed off their dressage skills in a demonstration on Friday evening to help create awareness about how wonderful and talented these mustangs truly are in any job.
We had an awesome time at Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing MWHR as your charity and supporting our efforts!! Ticket To Ride generously donated the proceeds from the Ride a Buck and Chicken Run Challenge classes on Friday night to MWHR.
Our mustang ambassadors, Hocus Pocus (left) and Roo (right), are getting ready for their dressage demo at the upcoming Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show on July 7th. In addition to the mustang demonstrations, we will be having the Tack Thing Event on Friday and a silent auction on Saturday.
Mark Your Calendars for July 7th and 8th!!! Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show is sponsoring MWHR again this year. Check out the event info on our FB page for more details!
Ally finally arrived at the MWHR farm late yesterday afternoon. She has been staying with one of our sister rescues, Hope Reins, until we had room for her. We are so grateful for their help in picking Ally up and giving her a safe place to stay the past two months. Ally will spend some time settling in at the farm and then our trainer will begin to work with and evaluate her. We know she is 18 years old and was captured as a 2 year old from the Reveille HMA in NV. Her previous owner says she has been ridden so hopefully some TLC and a little training refresher and then she’ll be ready for adoption.
We had another exciting “first” at the MWHR farm this past weekend. Smoochie had his first ride with MWHR volunteer, Stephanie. He was such a good boy. This little guy is definitely something special for sure
