Chester and Push Horse Rescue & Equestrian Therapy Center
Chester & Push Horse Rescue was inspired by two senior horses in search of a forever home. They had lost their owner and his final wish was to find them a home where they could live out their golden years together. The day they arrived they brought Jeff’s spirit along with them, we feel his presence every single day. As a registered charitable 501 (c)(3) Chester & Push Horse Rescue is dedicated to rescuing orphaned, neglected, abused or slaughter bound horses providing them a safe loving environment for them to thrive.
Chester & Push Horse Rescue provides shelter, feed, veterinary care and Farrier services for their horses and relies on the generous support of donors, volunteers, sponsors and grants.
Chester & Push Horse Rescue was founded by Sharon Robinson, a nurse, and Mark Hanson, a builder, who reconnected at a class reunion and are now engaged to be married. They both have a special connection with each other through the love of horses and both have spent a lot of time riding growing up in Castro Valley.
