Kentucky Equine Humane Center  1713 Catnip Hill Rd, Nicholasville KY   859.881.5849  Fax-859.881.0064


The KyEHC is a tranquil 70+ acre farm and safe haven for equines in need. Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. Some arrive here surrendered by their owners and others have been rescued from abuse and neglect. Once healed and (re)schooled these wonderful horses are available for adoption to become someone's best friend and partner.

Our Mission Statement is:
​To provide humane treatment and shelter while working to seek adoptive homes and provide second chances for Kentucky's equines, regardless of breed.To educate the public and raise awareness for responsible equine ownership so that fewer horses end up in crisis.To work with and serve as a model for organizations with the same mission in other states: to save America's equines from inhumane treatment.

Thank you, Lee Carter  and Stewart Perry from Equestrian Events, Inc for your generous gift!
Esprit is looking at the check and thinking that this will take care of her feed, vet, and farrier needs for five months.
We are grateful for your donation!

 We just had a great visit with Andrea Walker from WKYT. In the spirit of giving, you can make a purchase from our "store". The money raised from the sales is used to go to the care of the horses currently residing at the KyEHC. We have several items for sale for the horsey and non-horsey people. If you'd like to purchase anything please don't hesitate to call and inquire about anything that we have! 859-881-5849 (we will ship to you!) The spot will air NEXT Wednesday, Nov 22nd at 6:45am.

Happy Holidays from Millie!
Come on out to the Kentucky Equine Humane Center to do some Holiday shopping! We have more than sweatshirts and used tack; we also have things like candles and bath lotion sets that were donated to the Center, and all proceeds go to benefit my friends and me. You can avoid the mall if you shop at 1713 Catnip Hill Road on Black Friday and Small Business Saturday between 10:00am and 4:00pm, and help us have hay this winter at the same time!
See you this shopping season and THANK YOU!

Annora wants you all to know that she has not won her first horse show ........ yet!  But she does have a huge announcement to make!  The KyEHC is launching a new program called SASH (Sponsor a Special Horse).  We are thrilled to be able to offer this new sponsorship opportunity to our friends.  Did you know that the average operating cost to care for one equine at the Center every month is $500… and with up to 50 equines in our care each month, those costs quickly add up?  This  program was developed to provide individualized care for a specific equine of your choice for an entire year.   Your sponsorship truly makes a difference!  It will help to offset the costs for the care, rehabilitation, and training for your chosen equine.
