About Us

Nexus Equine was founded in 2016 to serve Oklahoma horses.

The primary desired impact is to reduce the number of at-risk horses through education, outreach and adoption. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and funded solely on donations and grants. Nexus is a limited intake program and is not a sanctuary.

We believe there are times when horses find themselves in at-risk situations and need outside support and resources. Quite often, these are younger healthier horses who have a great potential for a second career or new chapter in their lives. Nexus provides assessment and training to every horse in our adoption program. As a result, all horses have a specific individually designed program that promotes the highest potential of each horse.

The final step in our adoption process is matching the right person with the right horse, creating positive outcomes for the equine community. Horses need resources and support when they are no longer appropriate for current discipline or environment. Nexus provides those option either by putting horses in our adoption and transport programs OR by providing assistance to horse owners with veterinary and farrier care so that horses can remain at home.

Nexus collaborates and partners with other equine organizations, horse and breed associations, national animal welfare organizations and horse enthusiasts on a local and national level to help horses more efficiently and effectively. Our team works hard to help Oklahoma horses—check out recent news coverage, press releases, and social media posts about our efforts in the News Center.
