Rating: 5 stars   13 reviews

Issues: Animals

Location: 456 Ninth St #26 Hoboken NJ 07030 USA

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,

I have been a board member of Manes and Tails Organization for 5 years. Before I became a Board Member, I thought it such a fine plan for the horses I became a donor. This rescue is all about the horses. No expense is spared. The Administrative costs are Vet and Board fees. None of the Board Members are compensated. This year the rescue is being funded solely by the President. The goal is to take horses out of horrible situations and 'put them back together again.' I am pleased to be a Board Member for the Manes and Tails Organization in New Jersey.

Ellen takes the horses, rehabs them, when they are trained and/or rehabbed enough to be re-homed they are free leased, never sold. She has the only rescue I am aware of that does this. Ellen and her group NEVER give up. I evaluate them when they come in and when I had a boarding business I cared for them for Ellen. Even in these times of economic strife, Ellen will maintain her rescues.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact that these horses are saved from a brutal end, and have seen many of them go on to great homes. I have trained Ellen in dressage, and she has worked with the horses in dressage.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

somehow get more information out and get more people to donate their time and money.
