In 2024,

We remain primarily a Horse Sanctuary and Learning Center.

We are a 501c3 nonprofit organization, as Horse Help Providers, Inc. (DoubleHP).

We have been "in business" for about 22 years!

Eleven of our rescued horses live here, at New Hope Horse Shelter, 3 miles north of Crooks, SD.  Most of these horses were rescued from severe starvation, in cases where Law Enforcement requested our assistance.

While we have adopted out many rescued horses over the years, the eleven rescued horses who live here have been promised a forever home here. Most of them were either returned to us after a failed adoption, or were not very adoptable to begin with (injury, lameness, other health issue, trust / behavior issues).

Some of these rescued / sanctuary horses have, over time, become great riding horses and assist us in our horsemanship program!

Opportunities for Humans here:  Volunteer, Employment (part time or full time), Participant in our Horsemanship Program (how we communicate & participate with our horses, and how we take care of them), Horse Sponsor (help with the financial needs of one of our rescued horses, and visit your horses here if you have time).

Call or email if you have questions or want more info.  (605) 359-0961  or

Happy Snowy New Year

 Sorry for the delay in posting anything this year but we have been busy moving snow around, shoveling to keep gates and barn doors usable, and keeping everyone warm and fed and safe.  Which is a huge job every winter but extra huge this year.  Horses and humans here are all very happy to have barns.  It helps immensely with everything.  there are many more photos from today on our facebook page.  Greg took the tractor snowblower out and made a freeway for the horses to exercise on.  Mostly we just wanted you to know we are all OK.

 Mainstream Boutique at Dawley Farms in Sioux Falls is having a fundraiser for us Thursday Friday Saturday.   link to the fundraiser 

Meredith Opstad from Mainstream Boutique brought out a mannequin with some of their beautiful clothes. The horses loved it, especially Roman who got a little too personal with the white hat.
