Alexis Bittar has extended the offer to support the rescue.  When you call in (773-486-5627) to order from the website just mention Saddlebred Rescue!  Go to the News tab for more details.

All tax receipt letters for donations for 2014 will be sent by the end of the month. If you do not get a letter soon and you think we missed you please contact Sherrill Ducharme at Sherrill.ducharme@saddlebredrescue.com or email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

It goes without saying that we appreciate every donation we get for the horses we rehab and adopt out. We also appreciate the donations... given to special horses and situations where individual help is needed.

If you donated tack, blankets and the like please let us know if you did not get a letter. Those donations sometimes are harder to keep track of and determine the donated value. We want to make sure you get a donation letter as well.

We also want to thank the donors for the auction held at the brunch in Louisville this past year during the World Championship Horse Show. Each of you should have received a blank donation form at the point of your donation pledge last year. In case you cannot find that letter we will be sending you shortly a formal tax receipt letter with a summary of the results of the very successful auction. When we combined the auction proceeds, donations around the time of the Brunch and donations at the SBR table at the show we grossed over $50,000 again this year. We thank all the work that Maryta Montgomery and Nancy Trent put into this event to make it possible. The rescue's annual budget is over $300,000 each year so you see we cannot rest on this success only.

Any supporter, donor or interested party that wants more information about the rescue and may have questions regarding our operating budget and our activities please email us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we will answer your questions and send you a booklet titled Understanding Saddlebred Rescue Inc.: Who We Are, What We Stand For and How We Do It! dated January 2015, along with a brochure and a copy of the filed 2013 990 tax return if requested.





AMERICAN HORSE ADOPTIONTM operated by Saddlebred Rescue, Inc. (SBR) is a truly unique rescue that incorporates the thinking and practices of a professional show stable with the realities of the      plight of unwanted horses today.  SBR buys all horses in our program mostly from auctions and sales where they were slaughter bound. We have our own professional trainer who works with each horse to evaluate and design a schooling program to help the horse be as adoptable as possible.All horses in our program are evaluated by two professional horse trainers before they are placed.


Each horse’s overall health condition is assessed by our staff and veterinarian, if necessary, and immediately needed health issues are treated.  Chronic conditions are recorded as such.

All SBR horses are in a lifetime program and will always have the option of being returned to SBR if the adopter’s circumstances change.

SBR encourages every potential adopter to visit our facility and try out any of our treasures that may be a potential match.

While we encourage visits, we understand it is not always possible to visit us on-site.  In these cases, our trainers work with you to understand your needs and to pick out a horse that is perfect for you.  Our placement rate is very high and returns to SBR for incompatibility are almost nonexistent.

Every day our professionals work to improve the care, training and placement of our treasures.
