Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Horse Welfare

Our organization operates programs involved with horse rescue, foster care, rehabilitation, adoption and/or retirement.

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Our mission is to provide rescue and sanctuary to abused, injured, homeless, and retired horses until they can be placed in permanent, loving homes; to provide an North American Handicapped Riding Association Certified equine-assisted therapeutic program to assist at-risk and low income children; and to discover and deepen the natural bond between horse and human through educational and outreach programs.

Volunteer Opportunities

Exercise Rider
Minimum Age: 18
We are looking for a trainer who would be willing to work with our off-track thoroughbred rescues. Must have an equestrian background and be willing to provide references. Work at your own schedule while giving back to a wonderful cause!

Facilities Help
We are looking for carpenters, painters, and general handymen (or women) to help restore our old facility. We work by project, so the duties are varied. We would love to have your help - if only for a day! So much is needed to restore our old farm and we need your help to make this farm our sanctuary for ALL who enter. Please email for more information!

Our rescued horses loved to be brushed and spoiled! We are looking for a few good groomers who want to learn about horses and horse care, enjoy being "hands on" at the rescue, enjoy that one on one time with a needy horse. Horse experience helpful but not necessary- training available! Kids welcome!
