TUCSON, AZ, AND MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Horses being helped to get back to a normal life, saved from a severe situation where the owners could no longer care for the 30 animals.

It's been a collective effort to get them transferred to the White Stallion Ranch on Twin Peaks Road in Marana.

The first steps into safety. An environment where these horses can run in a little more space.

A chance for a new life, thanks to Russell True, who helped rescue them from a run-down home. 

"Clearly, they still cared about their horses. But it just seems that they were unable to do all the things that are needed to keep horses healthy and well," said True, co-owner of White Stallion Ranch. "They were in an odd collection of, I guess you call them, corrals. It looks like a bomb went off."

It's why he took the call and stepped in. Sadly four horses had to be euthanized with severe foot conditions, while four more needed emergency procedures to be saved.  As of Wednesday, May 2 there are 23 horses in True's care. 

The horses will rehab at the White Stallion Ranch, with help from the Pima County Sheriff’s Department and Rillito Race Track. Getting the food and medical care they need, until they can be adopted.

"Sometimes we rehab them and the guests end up riding them and they love that experience - the sense that they're riding a horse whose life has been saved, preserved, and improved," said True.
