Synopsis: My name is Yvonne Barteau and in 2017 I founded an Equine Rescue rescue called Horses without Humans. The reasons for beginning this chapter of my life, are outlined in my Into the Spotlight documentaries that were produced during that same time frame. In short, as a lifetime horsewoman, I believed it was my turn to give back to the species who defined and shaped me. Little did I know, less than two years after relocating Horses without Humans to Bell Florida, I would meet, and fall in love with a group of emaciated horses, we have lovingly nicknamed. The Bone Yard.

The majority of these 19 horses, all various ages, breeds and training, were all subjected to a long and tortuous existence where they were systematically starved to the threshold of death. Although these same horses were denied the most basic of needs, they were still a hopeful lot. This group of sweet souls has touched the heart of everyone who meets them. Their journey has been followed on Social Media by thousands of interested fans from around the globe. I am beyond grateful that we met these remarkable horses, likely just hours before it would have been to late to save, at least some of them.

I have always listened to my inner voice, especially about the more important things. Life choices, changes in work environments, decisions regarding key relationships… things of that nature. Of course there were times I ended up making a wrong choice. But… that is something we all do from time to time. So I don’t mind that too much. I just try to figure out my mistake, rectify as best I can, and then go on.
I was born to become a horse trainer. That much I know. Thank god I recognized that truth early on. No one pointed me in the direction of horses. I pointed myself there.
Once in a while I would change my path a bit but horses have remained the theme of my entire life. The love affair with horses began when I was a child. Storybook horses turned to Imaginary horses. Sneaking bareback rides on someone else’s horses, turned to earning money to ride lesson horses. Lesson horses shifted to race horses. Race horses evolved into fixing problem horses, and then to starting horses. Starting horses led me to live theater horses. Theater horses led me into the world of dressage and then dressage horses brought me back into the equine theater world. However, the most important chapter of my life began when I entered the realm of equine Rescue and Welfare.

Director's Statement

We are a 501c3 organization that takes in horses that have no humans, no voice of their own, and no other options. We provide the compassion and time it takes to rehabilitate them as well as professional assessment, medical care, companionship, and professional training with some of the most successful trainers in the equine industry. We provide basic groundwork and the foundations of dressage for all of our adoptable horses thereby giving them balance, understanding, and an exceptional advantage for all disciplines. We are saving these horses by giving them time, education, and the conditioning necessary for them to be the best athletes and partners they can be, and then finding them their humans
