FAQ

Where are you located?

Our barn is located 10 minutes west of downtown Salt Lake City.  In order to keep our horses safe and to maintain a peaceful environment, we do not adverstise our address.  We do welcome visitors by appointment, so please contact us if you would like to arrange a visit.

What if I see a horse in need?

If you see a horse (or any animal) experiencing abuse or neglect, please contact the Humane Society of Utah immediately.  They can be reached 24 hours a day at 801-261-2919 ext. 210 (Humane Society of Utah)

Do you offer horse back riding?

Noble Horse Sanctuary is not a riding facility.  The horses that come to Noble often times have permanent injuries or are not stable enough to ride.  Instead, we focus our efforts on rehabilitation, grooming, and exercising the horses by handwalking.

South Mountain Equine selects Mocha as "Horse of the Week"

"Mocha was rescued form a bad situation of starvation and abuse. When Catherine first met her and realized she was terrified of people they just clicked. Mocha went to many foster homes after her rescue, before she met Catherine. She then moved to a semi permanent equine center where Catherine bonded with her. When the doors to that equine center closed she was relocated to Noble Horse Sanctuary. She has given the folks at NHS the chance to be kind and make up for what went wrong in her past. She has learned what it means to trust and just keeps giving in return."  Click here to read the entire post.
