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 off the track Thoroughbreds and other "last chance" equines. Those wishing to make tax deductible donations may contribute to the growth and well being of these horses. The horses are not just rescued, they are evaluated and then are either rehabilitated, retrained and move on to their new homes or they have a life long sanctuary under our special care.

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 be an outdoor family education center that helps support the rescue efforts of Sandia Creek Ranch.

We have an integrated system for developing generations of people wanting to learn and properly care for horses while understanding the special connections horses have & at the same time we rehabilitate/retrain the rescue horses. We function off of personal donations & grants please see our website for upcoming events.

Our board is comprised Certified Equestrian Enthusiasts with 60 years of cumulative experience; an equine appraiser, retired military, and was founded by the 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 their recovery.

We have educated individuals world wide that continue to share their knowledge & experience to better Equines throughout the world. The rescue efforts are successful in being able to not only rehab & retrain but also bring the last chance horses into the fold to have a fullfilled & loved life to the fullest extent.
