Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.


Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Rehabilitate horses facing abuse and neglect, injured or abandoned to best optimal health. Provide assistance programs for those who can no longer care for their beloved animal thereby keeping the horse in its environment. Provide Equine Education to the public, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy for members of the community.

Horse-related programs:
We provide specialized care whether it be rehab through medical, physical or spiritual or starting with ground basics and going on to further training. Those horses who are rehabbed through the program go on to be adopted out through our Adoption Program. Those who aren't will live here in Sanctuary. Our goal is to help those horses who would not be given a chance due to the time and assistance needed to rehab as far as possible giving them a second chance at a life.<br/><br/>We provide education to Youth and prospective/current horse owners on proper equine care. We cover a wide range of topics from feeding, dental, farrier, every topic that pertains to horse care. We hold clinics to Educate the public. We have our Food Bank and Blanket Bank to help the community with their horses on a temporary basis thereby helping to keep horses in their homes.<br/><br/>We offer therapy/therapeutic situations for Veterans or others in the community who are suffering from PTSD, Trauma, Drug & Alcohol Issues.

Non-horse-related programs:
Fundraising activities, Work Day weekends where the community can come to help do General Cleanup and repairs at the facility. Holiday activities for social environment. Community Service to Colleges, School Districts, Boy and Girl Scouts, Juvenile Programs through the Court Systems.

Opportunity to learn, build confidence, help horses that oridinarily would not have a second chance at life. We do a lot of medical here and you can gain insight into this by being here.

Mornings after feed is best to work with horses. Afternoon time allows for someone to do online study until evening feed so if your going to school this is a good way to do it and help horses at the same time.
