Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
The need for our programs seems unlimited. Horses age out of performance careers, develop limiting sensory and mobility conditions and acquire metabolic and endocrinological conditions as they age. Horses that cannot be ridden are often viewed as second class citizens, despite the experience and skills they have developed over time.
     
     Our organizational goal is to create capacity within our managed farms and within the community at large for unwanted, older and special needs horses by giving them access to a community who appreciates the gifts and blessings of horses who cannot be ridden. But first they have to learn that ‘our’ horses are worth it.
     
     We do this through our vast education offerings, our volunteer program, our 'little horse' ambassador outreach, our partnerships with local breed shows, our 4H programs, our partnerships with the University of MN, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls and the vet tech programs at the vocational school.
     
     We are funded through private gifts and individual donations. We receive a few grants each year that we can use for capital improvements that either expand our capacity or modify spaces for horses with special needs (e.g. blindness).
     
     We are actively pursuing more recurring donors as individual horse sponsors and more corporate support and sponsorship.
     
     In 2020, we formed a collaboration with stakeholders of the Minnesota racing industry we called Racehorse Reimagined to help transition Minnesota bred or raced horses into adoptive homes and retirement options. We opened a new program specifically for retired racehorse broodmares called The Distaff as well as a new program, Phoenix Farm, to facilitate open admission for any referred racehorses.
     
     We are accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance and the Standardbred Transition Alliance and GFAS.
     
     We have established three new initiatives for equine assisted therapy in 2021 and appointed a program director to manage our programming in this area. The initiatives will focus on youth, first responders and backside racetrack workers. We initiated partnerships with PATH certified River Valley Riders to provide space and horses for their therapeutic riding sessions and also collaborate to provide off track Thoroughbreds to Abijah's on the Backside equine assisted therapy programs for racetrack's backside workers.

Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Retraining & Re-homing:
Overview of our programs involved with rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, re-homing and/or retirement:
     1. Foster and adoption of unwanted horses
     2. Rehab for horses seized by warrant for neglect and voluntarily surrendered due to hardship.
     3. Retirement for performance horses who are injured or age out of careers.
     4. Sanctuary for wild Mustangs.
     5. Pathway to ownership education programs for new horse owners / adopters
     6. Off track retirement and rehoming programs for Minnesota's off track Thoroughbred and Standardbred racehorses.

Equine Assisted Services (EAS):
Our organization provides the following equine assisted services (EAS):
    Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy/Counseling (Mental Health)
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Academic Learning
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Personal and/or Professional Development
Not Checked:
    Therapeutic Mounted Services
    Therapeutic Driving Services
    Therapeutic Vaulting Services
    Therapeutic Unmounted Services
    Equine-Assisted Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy/Speech-Language Pathology


Overview of our programs involved with providing EAS to individuals with special needs:
     We established two pilot programs in 2021, which are currently on hold pending funding:
     
     1. Valor matches First Responders with rescue horses in a counselor-facilitated program. VALOR provides support and affirmation to first responders who work in high stress, unpredictable work environments subject to intense scrutiny, second-guessing and evaluation of the community they serve.
     
     The nature of their work requires first responders to be unpredictably and intermittently exposed to tremendous risk and vulnerability at any time while maintaining order, objectivity and command of highly emotionally charged circumstances.
     
     First responders seeking help or guidance regarding stress management are thwarted by barriers including a reluctance to admit the effect of stress in their lives, how to discuss difficult or controversial reactions or interactions with the public without fear of reprisal, how to express the emotional responses to critical incidents without exposing vulnerabilities that could be used against them in the workplace.
     
     As public servants, they are inspired and motivated to help others and reticent about identifying and asking for help themselves.
     
     Equine assisted therapy has been well documented as exceptionally successful model to address the emotional consequences of chronic stress in first responders.
     
     VALOR forms an alliance between law enforcement professionals, and abused and neglected horses.
     
     
     2. This Teaching Horse is focused on elementary school children to combine their education goals with miniature horses. There are innumerable benefits to the students. We can provide a structured, goal-oriented ongoing program with measurable outcomes, anchored by before and after impact assessments.
     
     The benefit to the organization is to provide opportunities for our horses to give back and for us to tell their story, our story, to our community at large, demonstrating the value of supporting our work and mission.


At a time when equestrian sports are under pressure to protect horses while making those sports more accessible, so too must all equine organizations ensure that horses are treated humanely when interacting with people with and without special needs. Our organization takes the following steps to ensure that horses are benefiting from their interactions with people:
     Our staff provide continual training, coaching, and supervision of people interacting with horses. Staff teach people to recognize the signs of anxiety, pain, comfort, and relaxation in horses, and to act to increase comfort and relaxation. When possible, horses who are bonded strongly with another horse are kept together or nearby when providing interactions with people.
     
     We are offering a variety of programming such as Soul Train, Hands on Horses and Hearts and Hooves, each that assist people in understanding the behavior, reactions and sensitivities of our horses.


Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     We collaborate with a PATH organization called River Valley Riders, providing use of our facility and our horses for one of their therapeutic riding program sites. River Valley Riders mission is to enrich the lives of children and adults with special needs by providing equine-assisted services. Programs include therapeutic horseback riding, carriage driving and hippotherapy.
     
     RVR serves students in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area and western Wisconsin and take place from mid-April through early-November to enhance the participant’s physical, cognitive and emotional health while building a community of structure and support.
     
     We also partner with Abijah's on the Backside sourcing off track racehorses for their use in their equine assisted therapy programs. Abijah’s on the Backside brings individuals in need to the racetrack and their lives are transformed. Be they backside workers, first responders, or individuals seeking growth- Abijah’s brings healing & wellness to those suffering with PTSD, Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Eating Disorders and more.
     
     Other activities include:
     1. We host the nation's only Horseless Horse 4-H program where 4Hers from our County have an opportunity to train with our horses and complete in showmanship at halter and in-hand trail classes at the County Fair.
     2. We work with the local vet tech school to use our horses to teach techs to handle horses and take vital signs.
     3. We work with University of MN's equine nutrition graduate students who use our horses to complete their research in equine nutrition.
     4. We offer year round and ongoing horse care and welfare educational seminars that are open to the public.
     5. We offer 'path to ownership' courses for people interested in becoming horse owners.
     6. Our miniature horse program (This Little Horse) serves as community relations ambassadors at institutions and events throughout our region and provides therapeutic visits to schools, long-term care facilities, libraries, camps, etc.
     7.We host a Special Olympics Equestrian Team and train our special needs athletes year round. Our coaches are certified by Special Olympics.
     8. We collaborate with the University of Wisconsin-River Falls by providing off track racehorses for their Retraining Racehorses course offering. We provide horses for their equine reproduction program to give supervised students experience in semen collection and care of a pregnant mare, foaling and foal care.
     9. Our volunteers and horse sponsors come from all walks of life, ages, and physical abilities. They report tremendous therapeutic benefits from interacting with our horses during feeding, care, and cleaning activities.

Research/Medical Use of Equines:
Our organization has made equines available for research studies or medical training.
Please explain where and for what purpose equines are/were provided to use in research or medical training. 
     We have providing horses to the University of MN for a six month graduate research program to study grazing patterns and forage palatability.
     
     Two vet tech colleges in our area use our horses to learn basic horse handling skills and learn to assess body condition and take vitals, deworming, leg wraps, etc.
     
     We partner with the University of Wisconsin River Falls providing horses used in their equine reproductive studies. One is a stallion who is used to teach supervised students to collect and evaluate semen. One rescue mare was in foal when we got her and is foaling out at the University to provide supervised students an opportunity to follow and care for her through the pregnancy and foaling.
     
     No invasive or painful procedures are allowed.

Additional information about our grounds:
This facility provides sanctuary for a bonded herd of seven wild Mustang mares. rescued through the Hallelujah Horses mission. They are closely monitored for technical soundness and changes in eating behavior that would indicate a hoof or dental problem. They have never been handled and we do our best to preserve their lifestyle with minimal intervention. Regarding fence lines, the fence lines are all in visual sightlines of the feed crew and barn managers as part of their daily turnout routines so any breaches or fence issues are easily observed at the time. At these intervals, the barn managers or facilities manager do a perimeter walk around. So technically, they are checked twice a day for obvious signs of issues.
