About Swingin' D

At Swingin' D Horse Rescue, we're committed to saving horses from neglectful or abusive situations or from the slaughter pipeline, and nursing them back to health. We place them with responsible owners who commit to making their horse(s) the center of their world, and protecting them forever. We love horses and believe they deserve a life of usefulness and service where they're productive, cherished and pampered. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us. Check back later for updates to our horses. There’s much more to come!

About Us

Swingin' D was founded by a former Miss Oklahoma and television news anchor and her police detective husband. We learned about the horrors of horse slaughter through social media, and began bailing horses from kill lots through Facebook brokers. We also advocate for responsible horse ownership, and we're committed to exposing criminals in the rescue industry who prey on innocent victims and harm horses.
