Horse in Need

We are a non-profit organization in the south of Andalucia, Spain. Horse in Need is about rescuing abused, neglected, disabled and otherwise unwanted horses and donkeys. We are depending on donations, parenthood and adoptions to take care of all animals to rescue more.

Do Good

Most of the animals are very sick, weak and thin. They need your help, so we can take care of them.

Be a Hero

You don't have the space at home, but want to help a horse?

A wise man said: "The most important people are not those with a head full of knowledge. They are those who have hearts full of love, ears that are ready to listen, and hands that are ready to help."

Our mission is to make them feel safe

Sibylle founded the organization Horse in Need in response to the urgent plight of horses in Spain. What began as an informal arrangement to rehome a few horses to friends in the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland, gradually grew into a cause close to her heart. With a deep passion for horses and a desire to help, Horse in Need was officially established. In August 2020, Sibylle, along with her family, traveled to Spain to relocate the horses to their now well-known location. The organization increasingly garnered support and, thanks to a growing community of interested parties and volunteers, Horse In Need stands today as we know it - a steadfast haven for supporting horses in need.
