Rescue, Rehabilitate & Rehome

URGENT UPDATE The 3RS are in the process of rescuing 7 horses from near the Merrick at Newton Stewart. D & G

We have found 2 dead and 7 others in need of our help .. and we need your help. These horses will need health checked by the vets, wormed and treated for lice and ticks. If you can please donate via our donate link at top of our page. ...Every penny helps

Welcome to The 3Rs Horse Rescue Centre.
Here at the 3RS we provide a beautiful sanctuary for those in need of love and as horse enthusiasts and as owners ourselves we created the 3RS Horse Rescue Centre to provide a home to these beautiful horses where we could rescue them from danger, most times these gentle giants have been unfairly treated and sometimes neglected by their owners.

For others we provide our service to give your loving horse a home for life normally due to the owners retirement or incapacity, meaning that their owners simply are unable to provide the level of care that they need along with social interaction that they are used to and alike ourselves our horses are our babies and we would only give the best care to our children so why would our Studs & Mares be any different.

The 3RS Horse Rescue Centre is set over 225 acres of beautiful Scottish hillside above Auchenlairie, overlooking the idyllic Solway Firth our horses can graze on amazing pastures and roam the hills safely and live amazing lives.

All our horses can play till their hearts content, worry free with other horses and run like the mustang across our hills and pastures care free.

We have our own arena and hacking grounds on site to so that not only can we let our horses live freely but we can also bring them back to enjoying their lives we introduce them back to human touch and rebuild trust. We lunge the horses and give them time in our arena to thrive or even play a game of horse football overlooking the Solway looking all the way to the Isle of Man on a sunny day.

Just a mile down the road from the Laggan Outdoor Centre the scenery is exactly what the vet ordered for these magnificent horses or own personal horses along with our rescues they are all loved equally.

We love to see your faces up at the 3RS Horse Rescue Centre and we often host open days where you can pop along with the kids and come meet our beautiful horses and perhaps ride a pony/horse with our amazing equestrian trained staff here to help on site as we have a massive estate and we rely on donations and volunteers to help care for our animals. Every penny is greatly appreciate and further-more every penny goes to the horses care and feed.

We currently house 68 horses as a collective, we have 43 Rescue horses. In March 2018 we will have a grand total of 86 horses on our sanctuary

We operate a strict NO BREEDING POLICY all males are neutered.
