Horse Lick Creek Animal Rescue, Inc., is a recently established 501(c)3,
non-profit equine rescue facility located in Sand Gap, Kentucky. HLCAR’s mission
is to rescue, rehabilitate and train unwanted, abused and neglected horses
in preparation for permanent placement in loving homes where they can live
happy, healthy and productive lives.

HLCAR’s primary objective is to provide a safe environment for abandoned, abused, unwanted, and neglected horses; to provide medical care, food, gentling, and training depending on individual circumstances, increasing their potential for adoption; to provide shelter to horses in need of such care and to place these horses in caring, forever homes where they can lead productive lives.  

Our secondary objective is to provide education to prospective horse owners/adopters, current horse owners, youth or any interested party seeking to educate themselves about horse/equine husbandry further helping to prevent the problem of the unwanted,
abused or neglected horse.

HLCAR is currently being operated on land donated by Horse Lick Creek
 Equestrian Retreat, a full service equestrian facility featuring
1200+ acres of private trails.
