PEOPLE HELPING HORSES.
Our mission is to rescue and rehabilitate horses that have suffered from abuse and neglect, re-purpose Off-the-Track Thoroughbreds, and take horses whose owners can no longer care for them while expanding our social mission to offer our community, educational, horse/human interactive programs.
Our efforts also include providing Disaster Relief of food and supplies for horses and animals impacted by natural disasters, such as Hurricane Irma impacting TX and FL.
Horses provide a powerful healing ability that everyone can benefit from. We share that healing with our community through our many programs working with those suffering from trauma, adult and youth community service, at risk youth and more.
We work with groups in the community to offer unique interactions with the horses and find ways to give back.
Check out our PROGRAMS section to learn more about our involvement.
We are a Volunteer drive, not for profit organization. Volunteers from all walks of life - most with no horse experience, learn how to care for horses and experience the emotional and physical well-being of connecting with horses. The joy that is found in spending time with horses keeps them coming back. Whether that time is spent grooming, mucking, or just sitting quietly with them, those times of feeling acknowledged, accepted and engaged are powerful.
We love meeting people in our community and sharing our passion. Come for a visit and get involved! No appointment needed.
We offer tours of the farm and we welcome you to come walk around, feed treats to the horses, and learn why the rescue is a special place where second chances begin. If you have a large group of over 8, please email us to coordinate a time to visit so we can accommodate you.

We have helped over 1,500 equines find new homes. We help retired racehorses find second careers. Animal cruelty/neglect cases regain their health and find loving homes. Second chances begin at the Rescue. Your donation is important because we are not tax payer supported. Your donation provides feed, care and ensures the horses have a future.
The loss of our barn in April 2021 was devastating not only because it represented a total of $450,000 in property loss, but more importantly, we also lost the ability to take in horses with high medical needs - horses that need us the most. Please help us reach our goal of $290,000 to rebuild our Rescue Center.
