Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Ray of Light was established to provide a place where animals and people can form healthy connections in a safe environment. In addition, we aspire to be a healing presence in a wounded world.
Every year thousands of horses and donkeys are abandoned, abused or slaughtered. Ray of Light Farm serves as a safe haven for some providing medical care, nutritious food and training.
Many of these beautiful animals are then adopted into loving homes. Some very special ones go on to serve humanity as therapy animals.
Living out their lives as permanent farm residents, these animals provide a range of little miracles, from giving inspiration and encouragement to an autistic child to being an unjudging place to find solitude and companionship for a person suffering or dying from illness.
The farm remains open to the public and these animals are available and happy to listen to anyone in need of a friend.
