Are You Ready...
...to Leap into the Future with Us?
The first part of our mission is to rescue abused, neglected, unwanted and slaughter-bound equines. We rehabilitate these equines (mentally, emotionally and physically) and, if possible, place them in qualified adoptive homes. If sufficient rehabilitation is not possible, we provide a sanctuary for those equines for the duration of their lives.
The second part of our mission is to offer education in methods of Natural Horsemanship.
Who Are We?
This video illustrates who we are and what we do.
We believe that Natural Horsemanship is the most effective and humane way to relate to and/or train horses. By "Natural Horsemanship", we mean using the psychological nature of the horse to communicate. To read more about Natural Horsemanship click here.
We believe that education in Natural Horsemanship can decrease the need for rescue, because many people give up on their horses due to behavioral problems.

We do NOT:
Take in equines to euthanize them or buy from kill-pen brokers or auctions.
With owner surrenders and law-enforcement seizures, we can intercept at-risk equines before they get into the slaughter pipeline. This allows us to use our funds for care and keeps us at a lower risk for disease.
We currently operate out of foster homes. Our goal is to have our own first-class facility to better meet our needs of rescue, rehabilitation, adoption and education.

As for most folks across the globe, the Covid Pandemic found us shut in and locked down. To make the best of it, we
used the time to improve on our the educational side of our mission. We have now 4 books to help people their journey through Natural Horsemanship. The book series is called Natural Horsemanship: A Practical Guide.
As the founder, I spent nearly 3 decades, tens of thousands of dollars, traveled all across the country, and worked with hundreds of horses to gain the competence and confidence to be successful with all kinds of horses from wild and untouched to severely emotionally damaged from abusive treatment. My goal, in writing these books was to get you the information you need MOST and explain it to you in an easily understandable way. I used my education and experience as a classroom teacher to design the books crammed with diagrams and pictures to support the text. My goal was to make learning Natural Horsemanship as affordable and simple as possible. It's like having an instructor at your fingertips!
Here are some sample pages for you to see what unique and valuable resources they are.
