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.

This small Horse Rescue has not gone anywhere. They are still active however their websites have been hacked and that is a huge problem. They have reached out for help, however, none in the Non-Profit Sector has stayed long enough to finish the repairs.

They lost a Horse to EPM and the surviving Horses who have all been exposed are being managed with MSM (an anti-inflammatory), free lunging every day for 30 minutes in the Indoor Arena, and being kept cool in Summer and Warm in winter.

This tragedy could have been avoided had the Vets informed the Farm Owner that the wild animals which carry the parasite that gets into the Horse's body were indeed on the Property. They knew the animals were there but had no idea that these animals are Horse killers. They are now experts at managing Horses who have been exposed to EPM.

I send a Monthly Donation as these Horses will remain on the Farm for the duration of their lives. The Horses are usually Free Leased, however, a horse with exposure to EPM must be taken care of properly and nobody wants to take on a Horse that has been exposed to EPM.

It says this rescue is deep in the heart of NJ. Hoboken is on the waterfront across from New York City. No horses
Stables or facility in Hoboken.

The address they provide is an apartment building.

Manes and Tails has been a dedicated rescuer and advocate for horse welfare. Elle has worked to help all animals though focusing on horses since there are so few protections for them and the need is so great.

Thank you Elle and Manes and Tails for your diligence in this mission.

Elle has been front and center for animal-welfare/horse-welfare for the ~4 yrs that I've worked with her and Manes&Tails. She is spot-on for regulatory and legislative efforts, and a great advisor for that. It's a rare combination that she focuses on the legal aspects of federal and state legislation AND also the practical, everyday horse welfare aspects. She's a great advisor for those who want to make a difference in horse welfare.
