We have volunteers from all aspects of life. Some are veterans who find a certain amount of peace working with abused and neglected horses. There are also special needs children who come, visit and spend time with the horses. We also have children that come just to help and be around the horses or maybe go for a horseback ride for the very first time. We have a great group of volunteers but are always needing more!
Our amazing team of volunteers is committed to helping the horses in any way possible. Without their loyalty help, we couldn't accomplish what we need to do to help all of the rescued horses that we have here now. They show the horses the much-needed love that they deserve. If you think this would be a good fit for you then please contact us.
Our ultimate goal is to provide a safe and loving permanent home for our rescues. Our standards for permanent placement are strict and based on what's in the best interest of the horse. In some cases, this means the horse stays on our property but is wholly owned and supported by you.
Please contact us if you're interested!
Ever wanted to have your own horse but don't have the space or knowledge to do so? Sponsorship might be the perfect opportunity for both you and one of our beautiful rescues!
As a full sponsor, you may visit, groom, ride (after you've been qualified) and care for the horse anytime you'd like. When you're not here, our team will manage that on your behalf.
You may sponsor a horse for $325.00/month or $175.00 for a half sponsorship. This covers all food, boarding & daily care. You would be responsible for farrier expenses.
Sponsorship donations and farrier expenses, like other donations, are completely tax-deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
All donations are 100% tax-deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code.
A copy of our 501 (c) (3) determination letter is available upon request.
A portion of your donation may be allocated to direct mail, education, information, awareness & fundraising campaigns.
