Our mission is to educate passionate individuals in riding and agriculture, but to do so, we need the animals for people to learn with. Because we also want to help preserve endangered breeds, which are a treasure trove of unique genetics and a living relic of history, our purpose is twofold: to preserve these endangered breeds, such as the Lipizzan and San Clemente Island Goat, and to educate people in agriculture, particularly permaculture, and the art of classical riding. Many of the animals in our care were rescued from various situations.

The horses in particular have certain necessities, including food and shelter. In the last hurricane, we lost three shelters in three pastures. These shelters provide protection against the heat, the wind, and the rain, allowing the horses to be outside in their natural environment with the option of a way to get out of the weather. Without these shelters, they have to either stay confined in smaller spaces for longer hours or face the elements with less protection. These shelters range from canvas temporary shelters to permanent wooden structures, and the prices vary accordingly.

We also are coming into winter, where the pastures go dormant and the needs for hay increase. This year, the growing conditions were not ideal for hay, leaving less hay available to everyone and driving the prices up (sometimes almost doubling these prices).

The funds given will be used either for feed or for the shelters themselves. A donation of $20 will buy one horse feed for one day, and $500 will buy one temporary canvas shelter (which can be erected quickly, even if it doesn't last as long).

In the last hurricane, several shelters were lost for the horses and other animals that help with our education. We need 3 shelters, which can range from $500-$5000 in cost, depending on material. As winter starts, we also need hay and feed for the horses and goats, as the pastures are dormant.
