Place of Horses
The people, governance practices, and partners that make the organization tick.
Tina has always been driven by her love for old horses and kids with nowhere else to go. She has a special connection with foster kids and teenagers who are struggling, perhaps because she was once that teenager herself.
Growing up in a log cabin in Alaska, Tina had a dream from the time she was six years old — she wanted a horse more than anything in the world, and not just any horse, but she wanted to save an old horse with nowhere else to go, like she read about in her favorite book, "Black Beauty." But her family was homesteading and there was no money.
Over the years, Tina never forgot her dream of loving a horse, and eventually, it happened, for her children.
Years later, when the economy tanked Tina and her husband had two senior horses they couldn't afford, and could not rehome. That’s when The Place of Horses was founded, and they began offering horse education and a place for kids to learn everything horse, which eventually led to taking in more old horses and more kids.
