Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are aiming to accomplish equine welfare education and sustainable sanctuary.

We are holding events and fundraisers to achieve our goals. We also invite the community to tour our facilities and encourage visitors to get involved.

By owning 42 acres, we are looking forward to holding events and fundraisers on our property. This allows every opportunity for the public and donor to see first hand what we are doing and what we hope to achieve.

Our biggest success so far is the purchase of our own facility. By no longer having to rent, it allows us more time to focus on our mission.
Additionally, we have recently constructed an 11,000 square foot indoor arena to hold educational events, therapy sessions, and our riding academy.
Further, we are so proud of our GFAS ans TAA Accreditations.
