Mission Statement

With the help of the community, friends, family, volunteers and all walks of life, we want to save as many horses, and animals, as possible to avoid the ultimate fate of slaughter or euthanasia. In the future we would like to establish a therapy program with horses, so that veterans with PTSD or individuals who suffer from mental handicaps can spend some time with the horses. We believe that by grooming the horses, or even riding them, it can provide a positive, cathartic experience for all parties involved. Thus far, we have rescued twenty horses. Each horse has been emaciated, sick or in a condition that requires immediate attention and treatment. We have both a trainer, farrier and veterinarian who evaluate the horse’s condition and temperament. Afterwards, a treatment or behavioral regimen is implemented to make sure that the horses are in good shape and can be around people comfortably and safely.

Description

On 01/07/19, Founders, mother and daughter team, saved their first horse in need to prevent the inhumane fate--trip to slaughter. We are a 501c3 so any donations are tax deductible! We love what we do and are looking for volunteers and donors to help us!
