our mission

Our mission is to provide rehabilitation and lifelong sanctuary for horses that are unwanted, or have been abandoned, neglected, or abused. With a steadfast commitment to equine welfare, we aim to inspire the community to embrace the cause of compassion and forge meaningful human-horse connections.

We believe that every horse, regardless of their past or their ability, deserves a haven where healing is nurtured, and their innate grace and spirit are celebrated. Our organization is dedicated to rescuing equine souls in distress, offering them a sanctuary where they can rediscover trust, companionship, and the joys of a peaceful existence.

Through our work, we aspire to cultivate a community that is not only aware of the challenges faced by abandoned, mistreated and unrideable horses but is also actively engaged in addressing these issues. We aim to inspire the public to become advocates for equine welfare, encouraging them to take up the cause and build their own profound connections with these healing beings.

Our commitment extends beyond rescue and rehabilitation; we strive to be a beacon of education, promoting a deeper understanding of the physical, emotional, and psychological needs of horses. By fostering empathy and knowledge, we empower individuals to become ambassadors for equine welfare, working towards a world where every horse is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Through advocacy, rehabilitation, and community engagement, we seek to create a compassionate society where the welfare of horses is championed by all. Join us in building a future where abandoned, neglected, abused and unrideable horses find solace, and where human-horse connections flourish, creating a tapestry of empathy, understanding, and shared companionship.
