“Our mission is to provide emotional support and wellness to the terminally and chronically ill through rescued and rehabilitated equines. Our main rescue focus is orphan nurse mare foals. Every year we rescue between 30-50 foals. We also provide community services such as horse care education and free or low cost gelding clinics”.
Dream Equine Therapy Center provides equine therapy to patients at hospitals, facilities or at the farm. We visit hospitals, nursing homes and rehab facilities. The equines used for these programs and that reside at DETC are all in some way rescued or rehabilitated and given a second chance. Any proceeds go toward the care of these equines and to rescue many more horses and foals and help them find “Loving Forever Homes”. Donations are the basis of our non-profit organization.
