I am the Animal Control officer for the Elbert County Sheriff's office.While I've know Bini Abbott for a short time she's made a big impact on me with her knowledge of animals. I refer people that I come in contact with in the field that do not have a lot of experience with horses. Bini helps them. She is caring for Bullett a horse who was involved in a cruelty investigation. Bullett came to Bini very thin and malnourished. Now he's full of life and gaining weight. I really believe Bini has her heart in this program. Lauralea Hernandez.

Our relationship with RMHR and Bini Abbott came about due to an animal cruelty investigation that resulted in the impoundment of ten horses due to severe neglect. One of them, a sorrel Quarter horse stallion was very near death. RMHR provided around the clock care. A month later I returned to evaluate the horse's progress. I was stunned! I had to reassure myself this was the same animal by examining its distinct characteristics. The animal is now in prime condition. Ms. Abbott and Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue has significantly contributed to our organization and had a tremendous impact on our community.


Rocky Mountain Horse Rescue (RMHR) is dedicated to the rescue, care, rehabilitation and adoption of abused, unwanted and impounded horses, ponies, mules and donkeys. We offer the training in and free use of our rescue equipment including slings, glides and large animal lifts (LAL) to any one in need.

Background Statement

In 2004 we identified an immediate need to rescue horses that had been impounded. Since then we have been contacted by families facing financial difficulties, moves, deaths and other crisis situations that forced them to part with their animals. We've learned that a rescue means more than putting weight back on. It means rehabilitating a horse so that its adoptable. It involves educating individuals and groups on animal welfare. We give advice and counsel to daily callers. When we can't take a horse we can direct them to other solutions. Over time we learned that rescues require equipment. Our slings and lifts have been used as far away as Alaska and as nearby as a local swimming pool.
