Pintos ‘R’ Us Trail Rides & Defensa Animal de Rincon run “Hope4Horses” – A program for rescuing, rehabilitating, funding and placing in Horse Sanctuaries or Private Homes horses in need in Puerto Rico. Enjoy the below photos. These rescues are made possible by your Tax Deductible Donations – we are a Federal and PR Non Profit. We are looking for more large pieces of land in Puerto Rico to be Horse Sanctuaries. If you have land and the idea appeals to you please contact us to discuss. We are here to help in any way we can and we have all the horse resources to help

Barbie was tied without food or care and was rescued much thinner, weak, and delicate than the photos show. This frail young mare is now in our care – She is off a rope, with grass, water, shade and a horse buddy in Rincon Puerto Rico! We will continue to take and add photos/videos as she recovers. She is in need of a forever home so please contact us if you feel you can give her a great home! Your donations will provide grain, trimming, teeth floating, and de-wormer. Barbie’s future looks bright and we thank you in advanced for your support.
Barbie had already been in Hope4Horses care for 2 months when her 1st photos were taken. We were unable to document her rescuer sooner for safety reasons. It took us this amount of time to have her legally and safely in Hope4Horses care. By supporting Barbie you are supporting all our Horse Rescue efforts. A share (by clicking on one of the following buttons) can be just as helpful as a financial donation. NOTE: Donations can be made below, after photos – you enter ANY amount you’d like in the top dollar field above your email address.
Lady Shoshanna was rescued by on March 14th 2017. She had been reported as tied on too short a rope with no water & no food. She could not reach any grass! When we arrived the worst part of her condition was thousands of ticks on her *everywhere*, including up her nose! She was weak, malnourished, dehydrated but oh so sweet and ready to be rescued. She is now rescued, 100% tick FREE and living on Defensa Horse Rescue land. Lady Shoshanna is being well cared for but needs a few more donations and/or shares! Spread the word and help us help more horses in need like Lady Shoshanna.
Papi was a lame (check out those 2 front legs) horse who was living on the streets of Rincon, Puerto Rico. He was tied up at the baseball field for months until the city manager kicked him off. Then he was tied up in the trails behind El Faro. Both places lacked enough grass/food and water. The final straw, when we decided to take responsibility for Papi was on Christmas Eve Day, 2011 – Papi was tied up on the dangerous curve of the 413 (at Puesta del Sol). He’d gotten off rope and was walking across the road – obviously dangerous for Papi, our community and tourists. But thanks to your support and our community Papi is now living out his days in Sanctuary
May 2014, this horse was reported – tied on a hill, lost his footing and about choked himself to death (he has the scars to prove it too). A knowledgeable local cowboy informed us MO had markings of abuse and looked to have had a “tough life”. But MO is all better now and residing in Sanctuary. Donate to his rescue!
Released to Defensa by the State Police March 29th 2017, Because no one could find the owner and this young Stallion had been loose roaming Rincon for weeks . He is full of spirit has no issues except some cuts, ticks, need to be castrated, feed, cared for and rest to heal a somewhat lame leg (back right). Find all our current Horse Rescues at Hope4Horses.

Mooneye’s Rescue was request by the Rincon State Police. Officer Ramos had seen Mooneye tied on the side of the road in Rincon Puerto Rico. Officer Ramos knew by the look of Mooneye’s back right leg he was likely suffering and possibly needing to be put down. Our Defensa Hope4Horses Program collected Mooneye and brought him to our small Rincon Horse Sanctuary where he could rest until the next day when Vet Dra. Cristina could assess his leg. It was good news when Dra. Cristina diagnosed Mooneye with a dropped/injured tendon that could be treated with bute and corrective trims. She also recommended teeth floating, a good diet and castration. Today Mooneye is living on our large Aibonito Sister Animal Sanctuary. Please consider a donation for the care that was given Mooneye. We can not continue to rescue the horses in need in Puerto Rico without your support
