Nonprofit Overview

Mission: We are a non-profit organization dedicated to aiding equines whose hooves have fallen into a state of disrepair for any reason. We work diligently to return them to a condition where they can move painfree.

Results: Our large goals are the purchase of a long loafing shed to provide pasture shelter for all the horses at one time. There are 40 acres adjacent to our 10 acres that we would love to purchase one day to create an equine sanctuary and enable us to help more horses and teach morse students about caring for their fundamental needs.

Geographic areas served: Western Washington

Programs: Hoof trimming clinics to teach owners about natural hoofcare and maintaining their horses hooves as well as riding clinics, natural horsemanship and kids camps.

Pat has helped me save four horses that were in very bad shape from neglect. Two of them had been foundered and then so neglected they had abcessed and toes so long they could hardly walk. Pat took those two in and nursed them back to health and ultimately placed them in good homes. When I first took pat to see them and pick them up I was sure they were beyond saving. Both returned to full use with no issues. Pat has also helped me with several other ponies that had their feet neglected for years, all have been corrected and are moving around with no discomfort - you would never suspect they had been so mistreated. Pat is kind to the animals and does her work in a way to avoid distress and earn their trust - I have yet to see her give up on a horse that needs her help.

I run a non profit animal rescue. We have 3 miniature horses that came to us with bad feet. Pat has done an amazing job of getting them on the right track to healthy hooves. I would highly recommend this organization to anyone that has a horse with this type of problem. Pat is great to work with!

Pat and Rich have dedicated so much of their lives and time to rehabbing many horses. They've done wonders for the horses and children. Their education days are filled with fun, but more importantly, they are teaching the children about life, though the horses. What a gift. The kids wont forget that, nor will the horses. If I were able, I too, would buy the 40 acres and donate it to the Hoof Rehab. Time to buy a few Lotto tickets I guess!!
