Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
We are dedicated to providing a rehabilitative sanctuary for abandoned, abused, unwanted or slaughter-bound horses. We strive to bring people who love horses together with the horses they love.
The horses that we receive from the tracks are retrained in a discipline according to their abilities. Some are suited to jumping but the majority are to be used as trail and pleasure horses. Once they have completed their retraining they are put up for adoption. We are very choosy as to whom we allow to adopt our horses. The person must complete a detailed adoption application and then we require they spend a minimum of 6 weeks working with the horse at our facility. During this time we observe how horse and rider work with one another. Once the 6 weeks is finished we require them to sign a strict adoption agreement. We make unannounced site visits for the first year to check on the horse and his accommodations.
