Help Us Save Horses From The Slaughter Pipeline. Click here to help out...

For The Love Of The Hoof is a family ran 501 (c) 3 non-profit, pro horse equine rescue organization. We are located on 40 acres near Seligman, a small town with a population of 764 people, located along a preserved section of Route 66 between Flagstaff and Kingman, on the northern border of Yavapai County.

We rescue wild and domestic horses slated for slaughter, along with neglected horses and law enforcement seizures. We also accept owner surrendered horses from people who can no longer care for the animals. With every owner surrendered horse we ask for a surrender fee to help accommodate the horse's needs while in our care. We are an open-admission rescue and accept horses regardless of their condition, which sometimes can be dire.

  • ...I wanted to update you on Boo. I had messaged you a bit ago because we were having some issues with biting behavior from him. With patience and training, maybe some feed/supple changes and time, things have gotten so much better. He is becoming a very nice riding partner for my husband and barn mate to our mare. It’s so rewarding to see both the physical and behavioral changes in him. He is great in the pasture, even coming to us on his own as we call him. As our Forest service roads in the mountains start to open up again we are looking forward to some great trail time with him in the mountain meadows...

  • Good evening Wendy! Just shooting you an update on Phoenix and Trinity after a year of having them-TIME FLIES! They both are still doing great. Phoenix loves the rain and finding out what the rules are so she can break them. She has started ground work so we can get her under saddle this Fall. Trinity is the laziest toddler ever who dramatically drags her hooves on every walk we take but is also the biggest ham and lap filly. She has already started training for carting. They both are the most amazing addition to our family and I'm still so thankful for the fight you put up for these horses and the opportunity to give both of them their furever home.

  • Hi Wendy! Super duper excited to share with you that Raz has officially been started under saddle and had her first ride this morning! She did amaaaazing and I have such high hopes for us in the future! It’s been a journey with her but 100% worth it. She’s the best girl. Can’t wait to start taking her on trail rides with Brook! ❤️

  • Toby was saved from Slaughter in January 2023 and is enjoying his new life !!

  • Just wanted to let you know that Blaze is doing great!  We’ve decided to keep the name because it fits him and has a western flair. The vet saw him on Monday got his first visit to establish care. They had time, so they floated his teeth. 😊. The mare to the right of his stall is in love with him and he’s made friends with the gelding to the left. We are so impressed at how calm and easy going he is!  We are all enjoying him so much!!

  • This is my best friend Gabriel. He was named Duke previously for a few weeks by the wonderful people at For the Love of the Hoof. Someone had thrown my Gabriel away and left him to a potentially horrible fate. But For the Love of the Hoof stepped in and saved him so I could keep saving him. He is the nicest horse we have ever met. Friendly, outgoing, silly, affectionate. We have yet to find a single thing he does wrong. Thank you Wendy and family for taking the discarded and restoring their hope and dignity. It’s been wonderful to be a part of this process and to get a wonderful new friend as well. It’s hard to get a good picture of him because he follows me everywhere. He’s a doll. We are madly in love. Hope to ride next weekend…was waiting for weight to improve .
