Promoting the Humane & Responsible Treatment of Horses
Serenity's Mission is multi-faceted. It includes rescue, rehabilitation, education and healing.
Our foremost goal is to help rehabilitate, care for and place our rescued horses into loving homes. We are passionate about providing a natural and focused care plan for each of our resident equines.
We are also committed to supporting the equine community through our Education Center clinics and courses.
We believe that the relationship between humans and horses is a very special one. Many of our volunteers and others have experienced a special gift of healing when working or visiting the farm. You can read more about Horses as Healers on our Events and Programs page.
