  • Description

    Description

    Our foundation is a non-profitable organization whose Real mission is to Rescue, Rehabilitate and Rehome Horses, Ponies, Donkeys, and also, develop Therapy, Education, Sports and Leisure activities with horses, by means of Win Win Programs within the Environment, where both animals and humans involved receive benefits equally.
    The Foundation carries out their mission at a small Horse Santuary where we, as a family, live and take care of the horses, ponies, donkeys and farm animals( goat, pig, geese, chickens, dogs and cat) we rescue and where we also develop activities within the Environment.
    Our Foundation is starting to develop an Eco Proyect, a place in a Nature Reserve where we can continue to carry out our mission in the future...
