Mission: Manes & Tails Organization is a Domestic 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation that was duly filed in accordance with New Jersey State Law on June 22, 2004. The entity identification number is EIN: 90-0182985. Our Corporation number is 0400061154.
As a charitable organization designed to support and promote equid welfare, we:
* rescue, rehabilitate, retrain, and re-home the most commonly breeds of horses sent to slaughter in the United States - Thoroughbreds, Quarterhorses, and Standardbreds.
* actively participate in the eradication of equid slaughter in the United States through advocacy, education and dissemination of information.
* participate in breed conservancy of endangered equines such as the Akhal-Teke, Fell pony, and Shire horse.
Results: We spend a limited amount of time fundraising so as not to violate the IRS rules for fundraising.
Target demographics: We seek advanced riders in Dressage, over the age of 21 to free lease our horses to. When shown, the horses are always in the Ribbons.
Direct beneficiaries per year: One beneficiary supports our Thoroughbred Mare "Willow" and we are very grateful.
Geographic areas served: NY TriState Area
Programs: We had 'Howling Ridge Radio' however, the hosts became too busy to participate in the program. All episodes are archived on the Manes and Tails web site.
Additionally, we would like to create a National Stud for Thoroughbred horses. These horses are now so inbred that there will not be another Triple Crown Champion in our lifetime unless we conserve the breed by infusing it with an Arabian stud. Two Arabians, the Godolphon and Darley, as well as the Byerly Turk were the foundations of the Thoroughbred breed. Putting the Arabian back into the bloodline will yield healthier, stronger Thoroughbred horses. Thoroughbreds are only 97% pure,
