At R&R New Options Equine, we believe in the power of the human – horse connection. Our goal is to foster confidence, a strong work ethic, and a sense of accomplishment in everyone we serve through engagement in the care, training, and rehabilitation of abused and neglected horses. All who wish to learn and grow are welcome here, regardless of age, race, class, gender identity, or ability.


We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization managed entirely by volunteers. All funding goes directly to the care and keeping of our horses, the well-being of our organization, and maintaining our facilities and equipment. 


Originally, Leslie Roach just wanted a horse. She had worked with horses before, and thought she knew a thing or two about them. To her surprise, her first horse, Akshun Aravist, would teach her that she, in fact, knew nothing. It was a difficult but important wake-up call for ‘Aunt Les’ to realize that kindness is crucial to success with horses – and that being patient and opening your mind to their perspective will take you much farther than using force. It wasn’t long before she began to apply this philosophy to people too, and thus New Options was born.  


Donations are the lifeblood of our organization. Whether it is time, money, equipment, or services, your gift can make a difference in the life of a horse on the path to recovery.
