Friday Standing Ovation, Presented by Ovation Riding: Saddlebred Rescue, Inc.

Each Friday Horse Nation teams up with Ovation Riding to spotlight an individual or organization that is doing good work in the horse world. This week we salute Saddlebred Rescue, Inc.


It is the mission of American Horse Adoption operated by Saddlebred Rescue, Inc. to educate the public on concerns facing the saddleseat breeds and save forgotten and unwanted horses from slaughter and return them to useful, productive lives.

Saddlebred Rescue, Inc. is based in Hardwick, New Jersey, at Mark and Nealia McCracken’s North Wind Stables, a nationally known Saddlebred show facility that is home to many world and national title holders.

In addition to a number of horses available for adoption (you can view their profiles here), the Rescue also offers a lease program as part of their mission to widen the safety net for the saddle seat breeds.
