HELPFUL REFERENCES

If you horse is missing or stolen or you find a wayward horse. Contact your local police department first. Then contact NETPOSSE.COM. They are a non-profit organization that will take you by the hand and guide you in your search.  We suggest everyone regularly visit their site and fb page to study photos of missing horses. You might be the one to recover a missing horse and how cool would that be to help someone else?

This is a great reference for WARHorses looking for places to trail ride and camp with their horses. Horse Trails Across America is the #1 trail riding resource on the Internet. Each location includes detailed descriptions including; cost, amenities, terrain, trail footing and difficulty, photos and comments from equestrians who’ve “been there, done that”. Their FB page are posts from riders out and about!
