FalconRidge Equine Rescue, Inc.

Equine Veterinary Hospital and Equine Rescue
FalconRidge is an equine rescue that works closely with top veterinarians in the area to provide medical care and a sanctuary for rescued horses and then to re-home those horses that are suitable to go to new homes. To quote our website, “FalconRidge was created as an innovative and efficient equine rescue, sanctuary and educational training center in San Diego County for both humans and horses.” The student will have the opportunity to work with our main vet, Dr. Jeff Moss, at Creekside Veterinary Service and Dr. Joe Cannon at San Luis Rey Equine Hospital, and also learn about how our equine rescue operates and functions as well as help vet new arrivals and learn about the horses currently on site.
