ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
Horses Unlimited Rescue and Education Center Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 2011 by Victoria Hall and is the only organization of its kind in the entirety of West Texas. Victoria Hall is a graduate of Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas with a Bachelor of Science with a concentration in Equine. Nestled in the hills of East El Paso, Horses Unlimited works in conjunction with local sheriffs and animal control departments to provide a safe haven for abused, neglected, and surrendered horses. We then provide rehabilitation and training for the horses to include; ensuring all animals are up to date on immunizations, at a healthy weight, trained to be docile, rideable for the purpose of adoption into a loving family, suitable for equine/rider therapy or horseback riding lessons.
Horses Unlimited has expanded from a barren 2.5-acre lot in 2011 to providing eighteen outdoor horse stalls, a free-range pasture, a large round training pen, and a 200x150 ft arena for lessons and community benefits. The center is currently caring for 15 horses, 2 minis’, 1 sow, 1 mule, and 6 goats; but have provided care for up to 40, in past years with more needing help. Additionally, Victoria works closely with surrounding Sherriff Departments by providing education and classes to further assist them on how to respond to and handle abused and abandoned horses that are discovered. Horses Unlimited is dedicated to our cause and to our community. Caring for horses is a full-time job. Local police and animal control regularly call on us to facilitate the procurement of and rehabilitate neglected horses. Regardless of the time or occasion, we are on-call all day, every day. Horses Unlimited currently has 10-15 volunteers that assist with daily chores and care of the horses.
Horses Unlimited is open to the public for equine therapy and horseback riding lessons. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, lessons are offered at a very affordable rate so families in need of such therapy and lessons are not limited by financial means. Families and children are excited to ride and care for the horses, but the true value is extended beyond as both the rider and horse receive a sense of purpose, increased self-confidence, respect, and genuine love. Many local organizations and military programs, families, personnel and retires benefit from utilizing the center: Fort Bliss’ BOSS program, Army Sergeants Major Academy, Girl Scouts, El Paso’s Runaway Center, homeschool co-ops, El Paso Independent School district (field trips) and especially active military, military families and veterans, to name a few.
