Horses that first come to the Sanctuary are given time to unwind, relax and in turn, be assessed for rehabilitation needs.

Each horse will always have its own specific needs addressed and for us, there is no rush. Taking time to learn more about each horse allows us to better assess them for adoption suitability. We take the worry out of purchasing an ‘unknown’ horse for you.

Your ongoing support of donations enables us to continue saving and rehabilitating horses giving them a second chance in life.
