Gordon and Susan have been involved with horses off and on for most of their lives and since getting together almost 10 years began developing their own method for dealing with horse behaviour issues and helping owners gain confidence and build a better relationship with their equines.
Our most common problem is owners not being able to get their horses into a trailer or lorry with the next biggest problem being aggressive horses that have stripped their owners of all confidence.
Over the years they have taken in a number of horses that owners can no longer deal with and successfully transformed these lovely animals into fun loving partners.
They still have 2 of their original rescues Patrick and Jake who are very much part if the family and will never be rehomed. They have been lucky enough that their passion has rubbed off on to Susans daughters Holly and Yvie who are volunteers at the 3 R's Horse Rescue Centre.
Both Holly and Yvie compete their own horses and ponies but play an important role in the rehabilitation of the rescue horses. They are both very competitent horsepeople and once Gordon and Susan have completed the groundwork and agility holly and Yvie are usually the first riders.
Once Gordon & Susan are happy with how the horses are progressing with the girls the horses are then allocated to one of the other volunteers to bring on and then hopefully rehomed.
The 3Rs are lucky enough to have an amazing group of volunteers that provide the centre with support, fund raising and general hard work and we could not survive without them ... they are critical to the running of the centre.
All volunteers are given training when required and are encouraged to get as involved as they like.... from helping out in the yard, groundwork, agility, riding and competing ... We will help each and everyone fulfil their potential. You don't need to join us with a knowledge of horses you just need to be friendly, keen and most importantly a sense of humour.
The 3Rs rely on fund raising and donations and we need you! Fancy lending a hand in caring for these amazing horses or perhaps would love to get involved with fund raising on our behalf or perhaps a donation then we would be thrilled for your support and you can make a donation via our
