Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our organization is a tax exempt (IRS and California) fiscal agent supporting Sandia Creek Ranch. SCR rescues viable Thoroughbreds off track. Those wishing to make large tax deductible donations may contribute to the growth and well being of these horses. The horses are not just rescued. They are rehabilitated, retrained and given new homes.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Thoroughbred Rescue, Retraining, Re-homing

SCRAF supports Sandia Creek Ranch as they rescue off-track Thoroughbreds as well as other breeds. Rescuing involved purchase, transport, vetting, boarding, shoeing, and training each horse as he adapts to his new, much hillier, environment.

Charting impact

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

SCRAF aims to build up the rescue efforts of Sandia Creek Ranch and also support other equine sports and recreation activities. These include equitation for children and adults, support of the Backcountry Horsemen of America, and the Santa Fe Hunt.

By providing a tax deductible channel for gifts, grants, and donations, we supply part of the enormous costs of care for horses. That includes feed, veterinary bills, shoes, and schooling costs.

In terms of growth, the total herd population at SCR has risen from 50 in 2012 to 74 in 2018.

We hold regular fundraising events at SCR. We also attend special promotional events hosted by the California Aftercare Retirement Management Association (CARMA) to advertise the need and our response to Off-track Thoroughbreds.

We advertise through Facebook and Twitter, and maintain our own website as well.

Our board is comprised of two horse ranch owners with 60 years of cumulative experience; an industrial pharmaceutical officer, a retired special education professional, and dean of academic affairs at a private Los Angeles university.

Their combined knowledge, experience and efforts form the team that drives the growth of SCRAF and the increasing amount of support we can supply as the horses make a recovery from the track.

Our mission is pretty simple: supply daily needs of horses in feed, shoes, veterinary bill payment, and schooling. We are making great progress, having taken in six new rescues this year and having re-homed one.

We hope to double the number of horses coming into the ranch for the coming year.

In addition, SCRAF supports the Redshank Riders, a chapter of the Back Country Horsemen of America.

Two books, one by Crystal Wylie, and one by her daughter Kiersti, are in the works to help spread the word on how to form healthy balanced relationships between horse and rider.
