Willow Pond rescues horses that have been abused, neglected, or are otherwise unwanted. Once staff and volunteers have physically, mentally, and emotionally rehabilitated them, our horses either join the “herd”, working in our youth development, equine-assisted psychotherapy, and riding school programs, or we find them loving new placementt. Currently non of our horses are up for adoption As with most nonprofit horse rescues, though, the number of wonderful animals we are able to rescue depends so much on our budget. Your support, in the form of a donation or sponsorship, means we can continue to expand the services we provide for these horses.
