Drafting a better future for horses, humans and Mother Earth.

Our mission is to provide retired working horses a sanctuary and homeless working horses the opportunity to be useful and positively improve their lives, while bringing education, equine awareness, skills and healing to the community and the environment.

1. We believe that the draft horse is a national treasure and that horses and humans FUNDAMENTALLY belong together.

2. We believe that all horses deserve loving homes where their physical and social needs will be met.

3. We believe that “work” should not have a pejorative connotation.

4. * We believe that in these troubled economic and environmental times, working horses offer a sustainable means of equine husbandry.

5. * We believe that every working horse deserves to have his needs taken care of for the duration of his natural life.
