It is our mission to help meet the need for a "safe haven" for horses or other farm animals, who are at risk, neglected, abused, too expensive to keep, unwanted or otherwise in need of special care.

Horse-related programs:
Programs: 1.Rescue/Adoption Service: Provides the rescue transportation to the facility, initial vet assessment (physical exam, deworming), 30 day quarantine; handling/gentling, next is the training assessment and then ground work, riding in arenas evolving to trail rides and if able, participating in local gymkana events.<br/><br/>2.Senior/Sanctuary Program: A dual program provides a final retirement for rescues older than 20, and for younger horses with physical/medical issues determined not-ridable, both groups are not adoptable. We continue to seek sponsorships for seniors and the younger horses (as well as continuing rehabilitation for younger horses) <br/><br/>These programs are promoted through. <br/> <br/>-Educational/Community Outreach which provides children and adults the unique environment to explore the farm with an emphasis on horsemanship include;<br/><br/>-A day at the Farm (A field trip for elementary school children to walk around and learn about the workings of a farm);<br/><br/>-Horse Ownership Fundamentals (after the rescue and training of a horse) Gina works with a potentially new owner and rescued horse to provide basic training, a suitable match and understanding of the commitment that is involved.<br/><br/>-Community organizations such as the Boy Scouts schedule a weekend camping trip on the ranch to work on badge program<br/><br/>-High School students and individuals earn required volunteer credits working on the ranch
