Unfortunately the COVID-19 outbreak has had a crippling impact on the the operations of this critical non-profit and so we are asking for help to cover some of the operational costs which includes maintaining the well-being of the horses and facilities. We do receive generous donations from other sources in normal times but the exceptional circumstances that we live in today require an exceptional response. We very much appreciate your community support.
