Nearly 30 horses are receiving rehabilitative care after bring removed from a riding stable near Galveston, Texas.

Sergeant Joel Caldwell, of the Galveston Police Department’s Animal Services Unit, said police personnel removed 28 horses used for beach riding from S-n-G Horseback Riding on Jan. 22. The removed animals were allegedly maltreated, he said.

Authorities later charged S-n-G Horseback Riding owner Terri Glenn with one count of cruelty to livestock animals, and further charges could follow, Caldwell said.

“We’ll get veterinary reports as they become available,” he said.

Glenn was unavailable for comment.

Meanwhile, the removed horses were placed in the care of Habitat for Horses, a rescue facility in Hitchcock, Texas. Jerry Finch, Habitat for Horses president, said the horses were in poor condition upon arrival. He said all the horses rated a 3 or lower on the Henneke body condition scale.

“About three (of the horses) are in serious shape,” he said.

Caldwell said a hearing to determine the horses’ custody is slated for Jan.

    CONGRATULATIONS ~ I emailed earlier of my interest to foster one of these horses and we live in Huntsville on 20 acres and I have 4 other horses and 2 standard donkeys and have a perfect facility all by itself with nice stalls and a good pasture where a rehab horse could get lots of TLC. Please let me know if the horse is avaliable that is with the ranch manager in the picture and how long will the horses have to stay with you before they can be fostered – I am sure that is a one on one decision depending on their condition. We have very good quality costal hay to feed. Sally Stalter/Huntsville
