Upcoming auctions:

* Weekly on Saturdays: Elkhart Texas
* Monthly 4th Saturday Billings Livestock, Billings/MT
* Monthly 2nd Saturday Five Valleys Livestock, Missoula/MT

1H@AT will not be attending any auctions until further notice. 

We have many, many beautiful horses that are looking for homes, but we are at capacity and will not have new intakes until our current horses find homes. 

We are pledging the best possible care to our horses in need and can only help "so many" at a time!  Thanks for understanding.


We do hope for your ongoing support for those that are with us already, thank you!

Bean never forgotten.jpeg

We try our absolute best at the rescue to help any and all draft horses in need and we actively seek them out at auction to pull them out of that sometimes deadly pipeline!

In the case of our beautiful Baby Bean, we couldn't get to him soon enough. He was so very sick and malnourished that despite all our efforts, we had to end his suffering and let him go.

Baby Bean died at only 8 months and 6 days of age. He had been let down by humans to the point where he simply didn't want to be on this earth anymore.

One thing Baby Bean taught us at the rescue: we will get you out of that auction pipeline, no matter the price. If we can do it, we will! The days of three hundred, or even five hundred or a thousand Dollar draft horses at auction are long gone and we will help if we see a need! 

We are so very sorry we couldn't get to you any sooner Baby Bean, but we will continue our work in your honor, that's our promise to you. Run free baby boy, you are so very loved!

TINY 

The grandfather of the rescue, our ambassador! 


February 2018 - May 2022

Tiny was the ambassador of the rescue and loved by everyone who met him! Tiny loved hanging out with the herd and he enjoyed not having to "work" anymore, but he would much rather roam the yard and graze on the lawn! He was going on 23 years old and life and hard work had taken a toll on him and his body. He was on lots of grain, a joint supplement, pain medication and regular bodywork care. He lived a good life at the rescue and visited events and senior homes! Tiny deteriorated rather quickly in the past few months and he finally showed us in no uncertain terms that it was time for him to go ... so we helped him cross the Rainbow Bridge on 5/25/2022, after having spent a little over 4 years at the rescue. Tiny will leave a huge hole in our hearts and a big void at the rescue, but we will continue to fulfill our mission in his honor!
Until we will see each other again Tiny ... 

If you would like to donate in Tiny's memory and help us continue our mission,
please do so here, thank you!

A Bit About Our Founder

Turning Passion Into Action

Originally from Germany, I moved to the Valley in 2014 with my husband, a 26 year Army Veteran, and two children, where we live on a small 20 acre farm. 

 

Having grown up with horses, it had always been my dream to live on a farm and own a horse or two. While my heart beats for all horses, draft horses are my passion and after having been introduced to auctions and the horse slaughter business, I started to educate myself on those "practices" and soon came to realize that there is a great need for draft horses to be saved from going to slaughter and I wanted to be their voice. I have personally saved three that I call my own, two Percheron mares and a Percheron/TWH gelding.

I spent months of research about starting a rescue and particularly a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and finally at the end of 2017, with the support of my husband and two friends, 1 Horse At A Time Draft Horse Rescue, Inc. was established.

My goal was to open my heart and home to those draft horses facing the ultimate end while being dumped at auction and destined to step on that slaughter truck. With the rescue, I wanted to create a safe place for them where I could rehabilitate them, evaluate and train them if needed, and ultimately find a forever home for 1 Horse At A Time!

Please join me and my team in this effort by following us on this page and supporting the cause!

1 Horse At A Time Draft Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization and we are a charity organization registered with the state of Montana.
Donations are greatly appreciated and needed and will  go directly towards the horse(s) and their needs. 1H@AT is all volunteer based with no paid employees!

All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Thank you for following us and supporting us on this journey!

Animal Rescue and Care

While our mission is to save unwanted, neglected and abused draft horses from going to slaughter, our goal is also to help draft horses out of the auction pipeline! We will provide quarantine and care for draft horses in need, with the ultimately goal to find them a new forever home. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with us today!

Veterinary Services

With our organization’s mission always in mind, one of the first things for a new rescue is a veterinary check. Many of our draft horses come to us in some state of neglect, and a thorough check by our local Veterinary Clinic helps us determine the best course of action for each horse! Providing quarantine for our new arrivals is is also an important first step in keeping our other residents safe!

Forever Homes

At 1 Horse At A Time Draft Horse Rescue, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Finding a forever home for a draft horse is by no means an easy feat, but through hard work and networking, we believe it is possible! We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Pictured here is Felicity aka Dream with her new forever mom Arianna. Arianna had recently lost a draft horse which she also adopted from us. Here is what Arianna had to say about Dream: "I love her so much. Thank you for healing my heart. I was devastated when we lost Beauty. There is just something so special about drafts."

OUR AMAZING FARRIERS
Wes.jpeg
Wes 1.jpeg
At 1H@AT, farrier care is extremely important to us. We are grateful to say that not only do we have our regular, stand-up farrier Wes Mallin of Diamond Horseshoeing, but we are extremely lucky to have David Whitlow of Blackfoot Horseshoeing come to us with his tilt table! This allows us to trim some of our not so well trained drafts, but also makes it easy on the older ones with arthritis that have a hard time lifting and holding their feet! We are usually on an 8 week schedule with the tilt table, whereas Wes tries to help us out as new horses come in outside of that schedule! 

As farrier day nears, we will ask for you to sponsor a trim for one of our Gentle Giants and we always greatly appreciate the support. Trims range from $40-70, with shoes/special work ranging a bit higher!
