Mission Statement

The mission of Horses For Harmony is to integrate disadvantaged urban youth with retired or rescued thoroughbred racehorses and slaughter bound equines providing equestrian, agricultural, and environmental education.

Description

Horses For Harmony is an equestrian, educational, and agricultural experience courtesy of the farm and rural environment staffed entirely by volunteers. The youth in our programs are economically and socially disadvantaged, therefore programs are offered at zero cost to the participants. The equines in our program are off-the-track thoroughbred racehorses needing an alternative career. Many of these horses have career ending injuries requiring long-term rehabilitation or behavioral problems and would end up being shipped to slaughter or the auction circuits without our intervention.

In addition to our equestrian program, Horses For Harmony offers poultry production, and gardening programs (container, vertical, traditional, and aquaculture). Products offered to program participants are educational classes including textbooks and testing, tutors, expert seminars to enhance learning material, family day events, and on-site competitive events. All participants are required to participate in community service events designed to enhance confidence, communication, and leadership skills.
