Horses Leave Town

In January, the Red Bucket Equine Rescue nonprofit was told to move out of their home in the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center by mid-February.

The rescue group had housed its horses at the center since 2009 but then the owner of the property, who had helped finance the rescue, needed the space. So Red Bucket began raising money to help them find a new place to stay. The nonprofit’s owners were able to keep the horses on some of the land for a while, but ultimately were able to find a new home.

The group ended up in Chino Hills and, according to its website, is still taking in, nurturing and adopting out needy horses.
