R&RNew Options Equine Inc. is a Not for Profit rescue and rehab facility located in Sandy, Oregon. We began with a hope of making the world a better place one horse, one person at a time. Now we've decided to broaden our horizons. Our mission is to supply a safe, secure, nurturing environment for equine and persons in need, whether that need be physical, mental or spiritual.
The goal of New Options is to foster confidence, work ethic and a sense of accomplishment in disabled, disadvantaged and dis-empowered youth by teaching them to participate in the care, training and rehabilitation of abused and neglectedhorses. The young people may also take riding lessons and, after graduating from our course, adopt the horses that they have cared for and ridden. We are an entirely volunteer run organization. As such, all funds acquired are applied to the care of our horses and maintenance of the organization, facilities and equipment.
Your horse’s biggest problem is probably you. Your horse’s best solution is definitely you.Leslie Roach, 1993
Horses and Riders – Work and Play
We here at R&R New Options Equine, Inc. practice fear-free training. We're not "old school,"we break the rules not the horses. We don't believe in pain/fear training, but we do believe in discipline. We are New Options not No Options.
We at New Options give thanks to all of the volunteers, those who have given support to us and those who will.
If a statue in the park of a person on a horse has both front legs in the air, the person died in battle; if the horse has one front leg in the air, the person died as a result of wounds received in battle; if the horse has all four legs on the ground, the person died of natural causes.
