HiCaliber Horse Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and responsible placement of horses. We are committed to our community and show this through our unique owner support programs which include education and affordable training resources, as well as our shelter partnerships in Riverside and San Diego counties.

Auction is a dumping ground for injured horses. Many of our rescues are great horses that just need the next step in clinical veterinary intervention. Our global, generous village of seconds chances is rallying time and again to get these horses the help they need. Secret Fund for Surgical and Hospital-Bound Horses.
Thank you to everyone who joined us in dedicating the Price Family Arena and new training center, generously funded in part by a $10,000 ASPCA Matching Expansion Grant! To learn more about this project and see photos, click here.
If you're looking for it.... chances are pretty good we have it! Whether you are looking for a horse for gymkhana, vaulting, family pony, husband-safe trail horse, hunter-jumper, project horse, weanling, yearling, former race horse, therapy horse, mule or donkey, there's a good chance we have a candidate at HiCaliber! And if we don't? Really good chance we will soon! HiCaliber is getting new rescues in every single week and the horses we are getting from auction are pretty fantastic!
All HiCaliber rescues are vetted on intake, undergo a 30-day quarantine, are evaluated and then test-ridden when appropriate. While some horses are ready for adoption immediately, many of our horses undergo at least 30-60 days of training with HiCaliber's team or head off-site to one of the amazing, professional trainers we work with. New to the world of rescue? Worried about jumping in and making a commitment? Almost all of our horses come with a 30-day trial where you can return the horse with a full refund, no questions asked. If more time may be needed or you have questions, we are always here to support and work with you through the process! To meet our rescues available for adoption, please visit the For Adoption page.
On February 14, 2015, HiCaliber began the largest rescue operation in our history when we set out to save “The Fallen Herd” – 35 starved, broken horses, most of them former racehorses.
HiCaliber became involved when Fallen Horses Rescue’s Board of Directors reached out to HiCaliber. We were informed the rescue’s founder and caretaker had abandoned the herd and left them to starve. In the months prior to HiCaliber learning of their plight, volunteers were forced to helplessly watch horses they loved die of starvation as Animal Control failed to act.
The Valentine’s Day call came in, romantic plans were cancelled and our Emergency Response Team set out immediately to assess the situation... Read more about how HiCaliber rescued the Fallen...
HiCaliber Horse Rescue will not turn a blind eye to the abuse or neglect of horses, whether being conducted by individuals or other rescue organizations. When neglect is identified, HiCaliber will do our best to work with owners for a positive outcome for all parties. If help is refused, then we are prepared to fight and to be the voice for innocent animals who have no voice of their own.
