Mission Statement


New Mexico Horse Rescue At Walkin N Circles Ranch, Inc. (WNCR)  exists to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide proper care and humane treatment to unwanted, abused and abandoned horses! Our purpose is to provide each rescued horse humane and caring attention in which fear and pain are left at the front gate. Following a total assessment, gentle rehabilitation and/or retraining, and a rigorous screening process, we endeavor to find loving adoptive homes for each of our rescued horses. Our primary objective is to provide each rescued horse a chance for a new start in a useful and productive life.


As a New Mexico Equine Rescue, Walkin N Circles is licensed, regulated and inspected annually by the New Mexico State Livestock Board.  For more that ten years, WNCR has remained steadfast in its dedication to rescuing, providing proper care, and the full rehabilitation of "unwanted" horses that are abandoned, abused, unmanageable, or in some cases, destined for the slaughterhouse.  Due to our committed care, WNCR has actually created miraculous transformations for some of these magnificent animals.  It is our goal to provide all rescued equines with new beginnings and new productive lives with loving adoptive families.




At present, there is a rising concern in the United States to ensure “unwanted” and/or abused horses are provided not just adequate, but proper housing and care. “Unwanted” horses may be of any and/or all breeds, old, injured, sick, neglected, abused, unmanageable, or just no longer wanted by their owners. Many simply did not meet the owner’s expectations or needs. Whatever the reason, there are tens of thousands of horses that are unwanted, neglected, abused and abandoned in the U.S. every year.




Recently, surveys conducted by the New Mexico Horse Breeders Association and the American Horse Council indicate a population of more than 147,000 horses within our state. These horses contribute $503 million dollars annually in goods and services to New Mexico’s economy. Moreover, over 91,000 New Mexicans are involved in the horse industry as owners, service providers, and employees. This important segment of our economy employs the majority of horses in the four R’s (Racing, Ranching, Recreation, and Rodeo). Underscoring the importance of the horse industry, New Mexico State University offers students the opportunity of an equine education and some of our Junior Colleges provide Veterinary Technician and Farrier certification courses.
