What you'll do
Upon arrival, you will greet the horses we have rescued. You will then get to participate in their care and maintenance, including feeding, watering, cleaning, and grooming. After they have been cared for, you will get to play with them in their herd environment with the toys they enjoy most, which include balls, buckets, cones, or you can just quietly observe them being their happy horse selves. If you are are in need of an emotional getaway, you may have a very special experience where you might be able to lay down with one of the horses in their stalls and receive a special meditative session. This does not happen every day, but when one of our horses feels that someone is in need of some healing or rediscovering their true self, they may offer this to you. It is a very magical one-of-a-kind experience not to be found anywhere else in Los Angeles.
