Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To provide a safe and loving environment for previously abused and neglected animals, with a lifelong commitment to their care, and to partner with these animals in offering programs to the general public that demonstrate the educational, therapeutic and spiritual value of a loving relationship with animals. We use he term spiritual to describe those intangible experiences that are life affirming and transformational in nature. Specifically, these programs are designed to increase personal awareness, promote effective communication, time management, a strong work ethic, collaboration and leadership skills to prepare children and adults for life's challenges.
We accomplish this mission by adopting special needs animals and by providing programs to the community at large for individuals of all ages and life circumstances.
