The Horses 

Let us share our ever changing and growing family of equines with you.  Please remember that each horse is at his or her own stage and timeline of emotional pain, physical pain along with confidence and trust.

Catherine's mission:

"I wanted to create a program that gives horses a chance to find love and kindness as well as finding themselves and in that process find their true giving nature to help heal people. Our horses are rescued from "Kill Pens", auctions, donated cases in need and horses taken from other rescues who's resources are depleted. Our horses come to us with any number of physical, psychological, emotional pains and fears. We work with mind body and soul of the horses in our care to reestablish trust and a zest for life. These horses then go on to help people overcome tremendous pains, circumstances and fear and build trust, community, love and healing"

Timothy

On the Road to Restoration

This gentle giant was originally purchased for our farm family to support our all bodies barn riding program. He is on his way to becoming the big beautiful draft horse he was always meant to be and we love how his playful spirit is beginning to settle in now that he is here on the farm.

Dahlia

Kill Pen Rescue

On the Road to Restoration

Dahlia came to us with a reputation from previous auctions of having a fierce protective instinct in her hind end region. "double barrel" kicking was her communication of choice. She was terrified to the point of not being catchable in her pasture when she first arrived. "special cases come home" Catherine shares. "horses that need to be surrounded with love and need a home come up to the house. They live with my husband and I and our horses, basically in our front yard until the trust and confidence can be regained. Dahlia was an extreme case. She has come so far and yet has a long way to go" Dahlia is a forever resident here and we hope that she continues on her path of trust and wellness.

Tempi

Kill Pen Rescue

Lesson Horse Restoration

Tempi, Shirley Temple, came to us with two old hernias after time spent as a broodmare and roping in her past. Tempi was under muscled, underweight, head shy and ulcers, as so many rescue cases do. When she was treated for her ulcers she started a remarkable turn around.  Once she was of working weight she went back to riding with ease. Tempi is working on Western Dressage and Classical Dressage with our trainer and students.

Caspian

Kill Pen Rescue

On the Road to Restoration

Caspian is a Reg AQHA gelding by the name of WATTS DECK. He came to us as a kill pen save with his papers. Caspian has severe trust issues stemming from pain both in his feet and his back. Caspian's reactive nature has made us take our time with him and he currently live as a "House" resident with Catherine and her family.

Theodore

Theodore

On the Road to Restoration

Theo was in a euthanasia situation after a diagnosis of Ring Bone was found shortly after his original rescuer got him from Kaufman kill pen.  Not wanting to spend the money to make him comfortable and take a chance on him not being riding sound.  Theo is currently working with our staff becoming a safe trail mount, a job that helps keep his feet feeling good! along with custom shoes to help support him.

Sprinkles

Lesson Horse Restoration

Sprinkles is a shining example of why we do the work that we do.  This horse two years ago was on her death bed at 29 yrs old.  She has been in our care for almost 1 1/2 years and LOVES her job. After putting 150 lbs of weight back on her she was able to start riding.  She is a favorite for kids and adults.

Henry

On the Road to Restoration

Henry came to us very ill from the Kill Pen, he spent 90 days in quarantine on antibiotics before he could join us at the farm.  He had bleeding mouth ulcers that made eating impossible and horrible ulcers.  After months of careful feeding and medications Henry now rides in both our lesson and trail prorams.

Ariel

On the Road to Restoration

Our hardest and newest case to be turned over to REP is Ariel.  She has chronic diarrhea for 3 years and is under constant, expensive medications and feedings.  Ariel was covered in her own dried feces when she arrived to the point we thought she was black in color.  This mare has so much heart and love to share and although is doing better needs your support to continue her treatments.
