Mission:
Provide services to horses that are in need of healthcare, nutrition, and rehabilitation. Assist abused, neglected, and slaughter-bound horses on a discretionary basis through rehabilitating, training, and placing them in forever homes.

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:
Our goal is to help our horses become balanced, confident and as productive as possible, whether it be in a permanent home or here at the facility. We use a tailored training program specific to each horse to help realize their full potential while working within its limitations. We work to correct behavioral issues caused by cruelty or neglect. Every horse we rehabilitate receives medical attention to address all immediate physical needs, as well as ongoing veterinary, farrier, and alternative/holistic care where needed.
     
     Our staff and volunteers have decades of experience in equine rescue and rehabilitation, as well as financial, medical, and administrative training. We partner with a local university vet tech program to serve as an onsite resource for hands-on instruction. We strive to prevent future animal cruelty by educating the community on responsible equine husbandry through clinics and classes.
     
     We are proactive in our fundraising efforts and are honest about our financial needs and expenditures. We strive for operational and fiscal transparency in all aspects of our mission. We nurture our relationships with donors and grantors, and seek to establish trust within our area of influence.
     
     In recognition of our standards, we have achieved Verified Status by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS) in 2011. In addition, in 2017 we obtained certification as an Oklahoma Standards for Excellence organization through the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. We are working on putting in a covered arena at the facility to expand our venue for training and clinics. Our dedicated staff, strong community support, and institutional presence will enable its to meet our objectives for many years to come.

Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Retraining & Re-homing:
Overview of our programs involved with rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, re-homing and/or retirement:
     Every horse we rehabilitate receives medical attention to address all immediate physical needs, and ongoing veterinary, farrier and alternative/holistic care where needed.
     
     We utilize a tailored training program specific to each horse to help them realize their full potential, work within its limitations and work to address the issues that cruelty or neglect has left on their lives.
     
     Our staff uses proven methods and techniques to help our horses become balanced, confident and as productive as possible. The ultimate goal is to find a forever, lifelong home that is a perfect fit for each horse and their adoptive family.
     
     We strive to prevent future cruelty towards horses by educating the community on responsible equine husbandry through hands on instruction, clinics, and classes. Utilizing those not adoptable gives a second chance at a purpose and fulfilled life.
     
     Those horses not adoptable into a loving forever home due to illness, age, or other circumstances will remain at the facility to live their lives out in a humane fashion. Those deemed able to participate, will be used to assist with EAGALA, Equine Assisted Therapy, helping those who come for issues such as PTSD, Trauma, Developmental Disorders, Drug & Alcohol issues, and any other Mental Health disorder.
     
     We work with OSU/OKC Vet Tech Program also in students coming to learn about equine vet tech issues and working hands on.
     
     In 2018 we implemented our Seniors Program, the Ole' Timers Club, where the seniors from the community can come to interact with the horses and socialize in the Loft Barn. Depending on each individual circumstance for each senior they are able to groom and give attention to miniatures and donkeys needing human touch, and socialization to prepare some for adoption or those in Sanctuary to be kept handleable. Other Seniors who are able can work with the lower level trained horses.

Additional information about our rehoming policies and practices:
Not sure how the question about Ownership to be answered if it is a Lifetime or not? This is why we have return numbers. We have in our contract for the horse to be returned here if it is not wanted, unable to care for, etc to protect the horse from going into bad circumstances or to auction pipeline. The "owner" can treat the horse like any other owned horse--shows, trails, play days and more. We don't tell them what they can do other than not abuse or neglect it.
