We have her full bloodline and registered name.  As she was removed from a bad situation we have chosen not to release her information on-line.  Please contact us directly for her registered name and information.


Please check back with us for updates on this girl.  Pictured below is a happy Jewel with her trainer Dana Anderson.

We have now a good six months of training on this girl and she has come on fast.  She will make someone a great trail horse for many years to come.


It is very rewarding to see her regain trust  as well as muscle tone.


She has had her tune up and is ready to go!


Meet Susie.  12 year old OTT TB mare, pictured with her trainer Clair Taylor of Taylor'd Equine Services.  Clair stepped in when we needed six day training for this (then) highly strung girl.  Under Clair's soft hand and natural training methods Susie has regained trust and is back under saddle.  She is currently up for adoption to the right home and experienced rider.  She needs the security of other horses too. She has a great bloodline and racing record.

This 12 year old OTTB is currently in training with Taylor'd Equine Services. She available for adoption through our program. She is a sweet sweet mare, easy to handle, is just being restated under saddle and loves to work and learn. She is quiet and is middle of the herd.  Although she hasn't been taken on trail yet, she is quiet in the arena and not spooky. Shw would make a nice hunter under saddle or english pleasure horse, she is very comfortable


We are also looking for homes for the two seized yearlings “Spoons”  (Chestnut) and 2 year old “Cowboy” (Bay)

Please comtact us for more information on these little babies.  The are in custody of Santa Barbara Animal Control.

This is Hobbes, a 12 year Saddlebred “stray” – rideable, intermediate to advanced, very herd bound.


He was found wondering the back hills of Santa Barbara, obviously abandoned by a careless owner.


The horses listed below are all in need of deserving homes.  They are all Thoroughbred mares & are the result of a careless owner who over bred these mares for racing prospects  and treated them cruelly. 

Currently they are in a pretty good position as Jan from Animal Control was able to secure a pasture for them off-site, although the goal is to find them forever loving homes.


 If you are in the position to help one of these mares please reach out to us and we will put you in touch with the shelter.  We have taken one in to our sanctuary and are accepting tax deductable donations to help with her feed and training costs.  Thank you.
