Horse experience, no experience, young or old, it doesn’t matter.  We are always accepting volunteers for the following:

  • General Horse Care
  • Grounds Maintenance
  • Specialized Horse Care
  • Administrative Duties
  • Supply & Logistics
  • Mechanic & Fabricators
  • Media Development
  • PR & Fundraising


Sometimes folks need a trailer or other items that our rescue can help you with.  To provide the funds to maintain appropriate conditions for our rental items, we must charge for the use but promise to keep costs lower than you’ll find elsewhere.  Some of our rental items:

  • 2H bumper pull ‘Featherlite’ horse trailer
  • 8′ long custom beverage cart
  • Use of our 90’x150′ grass flex rail arena
* Florida use only.  We do not allow this rental trailer to leave Florida


Fundraising is how we keep going.  These are the most current Fundraisers. Click the button for more.

Active Fundraisers


Essentially fundraisers have a constant set time frame or time of year.  We have several campaigns, some seasonal and some all year long.



Donations no matter what form is the main reason we can continue to operate. Whether you have items, services, money, or time to donate… All are received with a great deal of gratitude.
We are always in need of well mannered, caring, and responsible people of all ages with or without horse experience that can help with horse related and non-horse related tasks.

Adoption is in many way the end and the beginning for rescued equines. The end of waiting for a permanent family environment. The beginning of forever. Our adoption program has rigid expectations of potential adopters for obvious reasons.

Committing to continued donations on a schedule is a dramatic way to make a difference. Your sponsorship to an equine or the organization, gives a sigh of relief from constricting financial burdens of day to day expenditures. Making a pledge to sponsor is an easy process.

See something Say something
While neglect of any animal is a concern of this organization, the laws in the state do not offer anyone other than the individual county authorities to legally investigate, warrant, and seize from any privately owned land. If any act of abuse is currently in the process of happening you should contact 911. All other advisements of abuse should be reported to the local county Sheriff department for investigation.
