Based in south East Queensland with Sanctuaries on the Gold Coast, Scenic Rim and The Lockyer Valley, Save A Horse Australia Horse Rescue and Sanctuary was established by Amanda Vella to take in unwanted, neglected, abused and slaughter bound horses, rehabilitating them and finding them the perfect forever home.
Mishka is a stunning 25 year old TB mare who is looking for a semi retirement home but suitable for very light riding. She is a very forward mare with a big heart but at 25 years old she needs to semi retire. She would be suitable for trail riding lightly but no more than once per week. If she is being ridden she must have shoes on all 4 hooves at all times. Mishka has had some education in her time and is very very smart. She is suitable for an intermediate rider - experienced rider but no beginners. Mishka is a sweet mare and would make the perfect companion horse as well. She is about 15.3hh and a beautiful deep bay colour.
Please guys, we are desperately seeking ongoing donations.
Jen was kind enough to hold an online auction for us which cleared our $3000
monthly vet account and our $2700 feed bill. Sadly, we have racked those bills
up again because we are just not getting the weekly donations that we need to
keep the rescue afloat. We have 6238 members on this page and if only half of
you donated just $2 per week that would cover all of our bills and free up our
time and finances to rescue twice as many horses as we currently have in care.
Imagine that? Twice as many horses lives being saved just by half of you
donating just $2 per week..What will $2
buy you? Not even a coffee… not even a chocolate bar…. Not even a soft drink…. However
with that $2 we can have twice as many horses in care – rescuing them from
abuse, neglect and the slaughter houses! PLEASE guys… just $2 per week will
help us help these amazing animals giving them a second chance at life and
Please donate now, set up a direct debit for $2 per week or
$8 per month and email me email@example.com
with your details so that I can provide a tax receipt. Remember that every
donation over $2 is fully tax deductible and we are fully registered and
sanctioned by the office of fair trading. We are one of only two fully
registered horse rescue charities in QLD (the other being Charlies Angels Horse
Rescue) that assist all breeds of horses.

Lucky is an aged emaciated STB gelding. He has been in care for about 4 weeks now and is going strong. We did think we would lose him at one point as he is fighting a chronic lung infection. I'm happy to say he is out of the woods.
Marley was surrendered in October 2010 and is one of our longest
residents. He was surrendered with badly cracked hooves and badly damaged pedal
bones including fractures. After a long time in care one of his hooves healed perfectly but sadly the other hoof was growing cracked and all of the oil,
supplements and different types of shoes and boots wasn’t helping. He was under
the care of 3 different farriers before we decided that enough is enough and
sent him to the Gold Coast equine centre for specialist treatment. He still has a long road to recovery but being a 11 year old horse we are trying our best to get him better and sound. He is an amazing horse with a bright future.
