SAVE A HORSE & Help a Human​




We strive to protect, promote, and educate about the rare hypoallergenic American Bashkir Curly Horse with select horses used in our equine therapy program to help individual people reach their maximum potential in life, work, hobbies, and more!  This rare wonderful breed is in fact hypoallergenic and with a gently puppy dog personality, they are perfect partners in our equine therapy program.  They make wonderful first time horses as they are gentle, eager to learn, and love their people!

We are always looking for volunteers!  We can use help with brushing horses, cleaning pastures, filling waters, feeding, exercising horses, leading to turnouts, and just spending time with the more scared horses we rescue.  Word of mouth is a great way to share our organization and goal, and we always appreciate recommendations and referrals!
