Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animal Training, Animals

Mission: WE BOARD THE HORSES AT A PRIVATE FACILITY WHICH IS NOT LOCATED IN HOBOKEN NJ! 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,

Manes and Tails is a top notch rescue with a deeply rooted passion for rescuing horses of all ages and breeds. Manes and Tails is the epitome of integrity, making sure all donations go toward rescuing and rehabilitating horses in need. All rescued horses remain with the organization until they are fully rehabbed, which is quite impressive.

I do not have much money but I send Manes and Tails Organization a small gift at Holiday time. They have photos of the horses on their website and Elle is a really caring person. I hope to rescue horses like she does, free lease them after they are healthy. And always know they are safe.

I have been supporting this little rescue for 4 years now. I support one horse every month and she is a big Thoroughbred called 'Willow'. I know that Manes and Tails Organization sets my donations aside for Willow only. They are very ethical and trustworthy and it is my pleasure to support this fine rescue.

I have known Ellen-Cathryn Nash (Cait for short) since 1980. She was always active with horses even when we were in College. My sister has several Warmbloods so I am not unfamiliar with horses. Cait takes on the hard cases and is a wonderful at rehabilitating these neglected and or abuses horses. The racehorses that her organization were all surrenders by their owners. It was a case of too much horse or the horse had been sedated and when the drugs were gone the true personality of the horse emerged. Not mean, just big and fast.

Manes and Tails Organization keeps the horses until they regain their health, are retrained to be Dressage horses and safe and reliable. Manes and Tails does not sell the horses (which I personally think is admirable but this does not increase revenues for the Organization). Manes and Tails 'Free Leases" the horses for their own protection; if a lessee wants to send a horse back, they can.

Manes and Tails Organization incorporated in New Jersey, NOT MAINE) is only about the animals and I have seen this first hand from the first horse rescued in 1995 to the most recent. There have only been three horses that have been in good health when Manes and Tails Organization took them. These horses are Willie, the 20 year old Quarterhorse who is the so called 'Mascot' and designated babysitter for the new rescues, then there was Callie who was a jet black Thoroughbred who had been beaten in his stall with an axe handle when he was a Steeplechaser in North Carolina, and finally there is Willow who is a Thoroughbred mare but needs an advanced rider with experience with Thoroughbreds.

I am going to donate to Manes and Tails Organization most likely in October when I have some disposable income available.

I've known of Cait Nash and Manes of Tails for many many years. I really can not think of a more worthy effort and a more committed and well executed group taking care of these magnificent creatures. Ms Nash's devotion to horses in need is simply inspiring. I've seen her and this organization in action many times in person, in NJ, and Manes and Tails horses are well fed and cared for and Cait trains them herself and manages their every need with a love and devotion that is very moving to witness.

Manes and Tails Organization is a small but highly effective rescue. Their policy is to rescue any breed of horse (not snobby like some other rescues who will only take one breed and look the other way at horses in need). This policy of non discrimination appeals to me and that is what caused me to donate to them.

The horses are usually in terrible condition when Manes and Tails takes them in, however they are excellent at bringing nearly dead horses back to health. They put the time and money into the horses and the end result is a horse that came in at 600 pounds and is rehabilitated to 1200 pounds and retrained to be Dressage horses.

This small rescue deserves recognition as they do not profit from the horses. They lease them for free but they still own them for their own protection.

Mane and Tails has been a rescue and helped horses for many years. It is completely honest and makes the best use of donated funds. Also the members have helped fight the abuse of horses and horse slaughter.
