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 is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Standing in the gap for retired racehorses providing a safety net through rehabilitation, education, & placement in qualified, caring homes.
To use the Program as an outreach for at risk youth to instill work ethics and a sense of responsibility.

Funding For Long Term CareOne a horse is sound and equipped with new skills, it can still take many months or even a year or longer to find an older, more spirited, limited use, or less physically appealing horse a home. Funds are needed to provide care for the more difficult to adopt horses until a home can be found.
Funding For Retraining Retired RacehorsesRacehorses are very athletic and intelligent. With retraining they are suitable for a wide variety of disciplines. Funding is needed to equip retired racehorses with suitable skills to ensure they have a future beyond the track.
Funding For Racing Injury Surgery & RehabilitationMany horses retire from the track with injuries. Most, if treated properly and given ample recovery time, will heal sufficiently that the horse can have a useful quality life. Funds are needed to provide necessary surgery and rehabilitation so these horses avoid a lifetime of lameness and/or going to slaughter.
