Rocking R is a 501(c)(3) non profit charitable organization. Our focus is on saving equine before they make it to the kill pens – through auction or owner release.
Some of our horses come ready & rideable from the auction, but many require much more – once they are ready for forever homes, you will find them here.
Swayze is a once in a lifetime kind of horse. An off the track thoroughbred, Swayze is 11 years old and about 16 hands. He is very well trained, safe, sane and sound – everything you want. Excellent on the trails and in the arena. Anyone who knows how to ride can ride him, although we would not say he is a true beginner horse because he is quick with his stop and turn. He is a total lovebug, comes right to the fence when he sees you. His adoption fee is $2,000.00.
These horses are either in the quarantine or evaluation stage, or in training. Watch for them to be available in the future.
Maverick is a 20 year old BLM mustang who found himself in a kill pen recently. He is sweet, broke to ride and built like a tank. He is still in quarantine and will be evaluated soon.
Fireball is a 10 year old thoroughbred. She is beautiful, smart, and energetic. She is currently being tuned up by one of our trainers and will be available soon.
Sugar is a 4 year old quarter horse. She has recently recovered from an abscess and is being started under saddle by one of our trainers. She is a total sweetheart and getting a great start. She will definitely make someone a fantastic partner in the future.
Some horses come to RRRR to stay, due to age, abuse, or other factors which make them difficult to place. Our sanctuary horses need sponsors and dedicated volunteers.
Saving Horses from the Slaughter Pipeline
Initially we started rescuing horses from the kill pens, but after seeing the inside of the business, we realized that we could help horses more – and help so many more horses if we started intercepting them before the kill buyers purchased them.
As a result, we can save the horses the trauma and exposure to disease of transport into a kill pen. We attend regional auctions in Mississippi and are careful to purchase horses that the kill buyer is bidding on.
We cannot do this alone! We need donations for hay, vet care, manpower, transport costs, with equine the list is endless.
