    This place is paradise for horsing and kids. Each of the horses have a unique set of circumstances they have overcome. Their existence speaks about persistence and resilience
  • Gill I am so inspired by your project. The horses are so beautiful. Walking down the barn at supper time i hear them all chomping away at their food happily. All nice and warm in their stables. I feel moved to reach out and try do more to assist. Rescuing these precious animals is only the first step. Having had horses for years I know the on going costs and needs involved. I pray that this project, the horses and all the children that are and those that still will benefit will be richly blessed and that the haven will be in a position to rescue more horses in dire need. Knowing that there are horses starving, in pain or being abused each day wrenches my heart and soul. Even though you receive very little financial support you still manage to feed 15 horses and ponies. Thank you for your sacrifice. Xxx

These are a few of our needs ...
