How can you help

Looking for supporters

rmj horse rescue


We have several projects above our running costs. One of these are our MasterPlan which would finally change the ex pig farm into proper safe stables to provide adequate facility for our short and long term residents

Sponsor a horse for a month!

Every month we publish the names of horses who don’t have a regular sponsor. Choose one, and for a one time donation help this horse out! You can visit us and meet your chosen rescue or we send you photos and updates if you live abroad!

Back to the green project

With directed donations we can rehome our horses abroad, where they can enjoy the green fields until the end of their lives. Many of our retired racehorses are completely healthy, they can be ridden, and be perfect pets for You!

Getting Involved

Save an Animal

Adopting a horse

Most of our horses are coming from racing, usually thoroughbred or standardbred. After finishing racing, most of them would end up in the slaughter house, because of lack of space. Also unfortunately we have cases of neglected horses and ponies. You can adopt from Malta or with our “back to the green” program when we rehome horses abroad.

MakING a Donation

If you can not adopt, but would like to help out, every little counts! Horses are expensive to feed, many of our neglected cases need regular vet check up, we fix teeth, heal legs, and we always improve our stables to make space for more horses in need. All of these won’t be possible without our generous supporters. See our projects for more information

Teaching adults and kids how to properly interact with horses. This is also beneficial for our residents, since they get out and have a chance to stretch their legs a bit

horse therapy

Horses are magical creatures. In many countries, they are involved in therapy for ADHD, autism, depression, limited mobility and much more. We are available for bookings for such sessions on and off site. Contact us for details

We visit schools to raise awareness, organise photoshoots. In summer you have a chance to come and swim with horses. We are open for ideas if you would like to arrange team building programs or other events.

Permanent residents

These horses already have found their forever homes. They are helping us with our events, teaching you riding, giving therapy or just enjoying their retirement.

Horses in rehab

These horses came either in bad condition or with behavioral problems. We are trying to help them to get better, so they will be ready for adoption later.

These horses are our success stories. They have already found their forever home in Malta or with the Back to the Green project


Adoption Notes

Research before adopting

Unfortunately we had many horses returning into our care after adoption, because the new owners did’t realise how much commitment is in owing a horse. Please read this article carefully before appying
