Aiken Equine Rescue was established in 2006 with almost 90 acres of land. We have eight pastures, thirteen paddocks, a stable and office building, and maintenance barn. In the ten years since its founding, Aiken Equine Rescue has become the largest horse rescue center in the southeastern United States. It has placed 800 horses into adopted homes and rescued many horses, donkeys, and mules. At any given time, between 60 – 70 horses reside at the Center: 10 boarders, 12 ‘sanctuary’ horses, and usually about 40 up for adoption. We provide each with food, medical attention, and personal care until we find them an appropriate home. With your help, we can be successful!
The MISSION of the Aiken Horse Park Foundation is to promote Aiken’s equestrian way of life and to encourage the community’s civic, educational, and charitable endeavors. To ensure its tradition as an equestrian venue in Aiken’s Historic Horse District, Bruce Duchossois purchased the 66 acres, now known as Bruce’s Field in the year 2000. His dream was to nurture the property into South Carolina’s premier equestrian facility yet maintain its historic character.
