Horse Sanctuary
HORSE SANCTUARY MISSION
The mission of the horse sanctuary at Mountain Horse Farm is to provide a forever home for horses of all ages, where they can live a life as natural as possible. We strive to create interactions between horses & humans that are peaceful, healing, learning, relaxing, fun & playful for the horse & the human.
OUR HORSES
Cricket
Cricket is our grand old lady. She is well in her twenties but looks much younger. She is firmly in charge of the herd and very communicative. Always nickering or whinnying. She is smart, strong, independent and a sassy redhead. Before she came to us she didn't always have it easy in life and she has some scars on her face to show for it. Now she is living the good life and enjoys every minute of it.
Noa
Noa is our sweet little girl. The youngest horse we have at the farm with the prettiest eyes I have ever seen on a horse. Noa had a rough start in life because she was almost starved to death as a baby. She was taken in by the animal rescue organization Lollypop Farm and we adopted her from there. Because of the malnutrition in her first year her growth has been stunted and the muscles in her hindlegs didn't develop properly. It's not bothering her but she can't be ridden which made her a difficult horse to be adopted out. But since we don't ride our horses she was a perfect match for us. She is a sweet, in your pocket kind of horse, persistent, curious, playful and she gets along with everybody. 
Jaxon
Jaxon is our gentle giant. A 17.5 foot and almost 1800 pounds Belgian Draft. We know a lot about his background and it seems like he always had a good home. He is our big boy, sweet, goofy, strong, clumsy and happy. He is the only male horse we have and he is protective of his ladies. He gets along with all other horses and especially likes the mini's. 
Suzie Q and Missy
Suzie Q and Missy are our adorable minis.  We adopted both of them from Begin Again Horse Rescue. Suzie Q was used for breeding all her life, which is not easy on a horse, and when she was too old for that she was discarded as useless. We are very thankful that Begin Again Horse Rescue took her in so we could adopt her from there. Missy has a  similar story. She ended up in dire straits after her owner died. The two girls are BFF's and do not like to be separated from each other. Missy is our pasture greeter, always coming to the fence to say Hi, very social and sweet but also playful and frisky. Suzie Q is the more serious one, she is also a bit on the bossy side but very appreciative of the life she is leading right now.

Wellness sessions for people with our horses ~ Play - Heal  - Learn

Horses are powerful, beautiful, sensitive, and intuitive animals that have the ability to read and mirror our energy and emotions and in doing so can help us heal and learn.

The powerful sessions will give you valuable insights about yourself but at the same time it will feel like you are playing with the horses.  They are a lot of fun. Horses are masters at living in the moment and they encourage us to do the same. It's amazing to be close to them and feel their energy.     

We have wellness sessions for: 
  • couples 
  • women
  • children & adults with autism
  • seniors & the elderly
  • people that are going through grief, loss or life changing experiences like a divorce or illness
  • corporate sessions for teambuilding and leadership skills training

These sessions don't involve riding horses, all work is done on the ground in a safe environment. No prior experience with horses is required.
