Meet the horses, ponies and donkeys, groom and pet them. Talk about volunteering and adopting. What Drives Us A.R.C.H.’s mission is to provide the best care and rehabilitation for abandoned and abused horses.
Andalusian horses for adoption are usually surrendered by their previous owners because of change in lifestyle, a lack of financial ability to maintain a horse, or the owner needs to find the Andalusian horse a companion. Mostly you must be aware that every rescue ’s goal is to find forever homes for all their horses.
This means that they will anticipate you are providing a home and safe atmosphere for the Andalusian horse its entire life. Andalusian horses will need the right size stable and a big enough corral, paddock or pasture are key for your horses to remain happy and healthy.
Andalusian horses are herd animals and take comfort in having at least one other horse friend, so keep that in mind if you are thinking of housing your newly adopted Andalusian horse on your own property. Horses are also grazing animals that naturally will walk on average 20 miles a day.
Confining an Andalusian horse to a small area where he can't move around can lead to many behavior and health problems. Be prepared to provide; stall/corral rental, shoeing, veterinarian care including worming, vaccinations and any other needed medicines, salt/supplements, feed, hay, grooming supplies, blankets for different temperatures, and tack.
Older Andalusian horses may need less exercise than younger ones, but they still require daily cleaning, feeding, and love! If you are boarding an Andalusian horse, make sure to ask if the fee includes a daily mucking and turnout, or be prepared to spend at least an hour cleaning both your horse and their stall, in addition to the time needed to give them their daily exercise.
Finally, ask the broader what supplies are included, such as buckets, feed, hay, and bedding, or if you will need to purchase and provide those. Volunteering at a local horse rescue is a great idea to help familiarize yourself with Andalusian horses without enduring the financial and time commitment of ownership.
You’ll also quickly become very knowledgeable about Andalusian horse care, while satisfying your desire to enjoy time with Andalusian horses. Andalusian horses within rescues have sometimes had periods of loneliness and hardship in their lives.
However, with the arrival of the financial crisis things changed, thousands of beautiful, fit young horses were sent to slaughter as their owners and breeders unable to feed the mares or sell the foals. Soon our policy of limiting our intake went out of the window as we desperately tried to rescue as many equines as we could, each one a victim of the economic downturn.
During the first few years of our existence we often had to appeal to our supporters and sponsors for help as our rescue numbers grew. Was founded in 2009 by a small group of horse lovers, all of whom had experience working with rescued animals.

Meet Duke, Duke is a gorgeous 1-year-old gelding. He has been vaccinated, wormed and have been started on leading and gentling.
We are also especially proud to have been required by the State Council to collaborate on the preparation of a Law which no longer considers horses as income but recognizes them as pets. Our major success is that every day we feel the gratitude of our animals, the affection of anonymous people and the respect and support of professionals that congratulate us on our work.
I do not wish to enter into crude comparisons and so instead, I limit myself to the sensations themselves: who or what decides who should suffer to a greater or lesser extent and why? Scientifically, almost on a par with the discovery that the Earth is round (I think), we are all conscious of blood vessels, nerve endings, etc.
I could only possibly surpass the animals that I have had the honor of knowing and accompanying on their way and sometimes at their end, by feeling the RESPECT that each one of them deserves and inspires in me. I could tell you that I have seen an animal dying in sorrow and attacking in frustration, be reborn with a caress and survive with a tear.
It would be so easy, if I knew by licking your hand and speaking with my eyes, I could expressly gratitude for your support and love. It would be so easy, if I could take a step toward you, despite having been beaten by a whip, to touch you with my snout and express to you that your help means so much.
At this Association and refuge we will try and continue demonstrating with actions, what the words alone do not show, and we hope and pray to God each day, to accompany us on our way. That, at the end of the day, is not just the actions of “animal lovers”… but, simply having love and respect for any living being, regardless of species or breed.
