WELCOME TO HOOFBEATS SANCTUARY

OUR PURPOSE

Hoofbeats Sanctuary is a restorative place where people of all ages impacted by trauma can participate in equine-assisted programs designed to protect, restore and empower horses and humans. It’s a peaceful and welcoming space, free from pressure for both our clients and herd alike. Most of the horses and ponies at the sanctuary have also experienced trauma in their lives, and they are the perfect teachers. Being part of the process that allows the horses to regain their health, dignity, courage and love of life is enormously empowering for clients who learn that their past doesn’t have to define their future. Horses don’t worry about your appearance, background, vulnerability or past experiences. In this chaotic world they hold space for you without judgement, and offer much-needed emotional security and comfort.
