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.

Serenity has been chosen by our community as one of the Great Nonprofits for 2014. You can read our reviews on Great Nonprofits. Receiving this award is very important when organizations are reviewing our grant proposals.
A big Thank You to our supporters for writing a review for us.
Serenity's horses depend on the tax-deductible contributions of our wonderful donors - we depend entirely on private donations and the occasional grant to continue our mission. Donate today - your dollars go directly to feeding and caring for the horses! Go to our Donate page to learn about how many ways you can help the horses at Serenity.

We need reliable, regular volunteers around the farm! If you are interested in helping out please contact Serenity at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Orientations are held most Saturdays of each month at 10am. These orientations last for about 45 minutes and volunteers are encouraged to stay and work after the orientation. Please visit our Volunteer page for more information.

Serenity is chosen by the Sandra James Foundation to receive it's final donation!
"Sandra's love for horses is demonstrated thru her life and music. It is for this reason that the Sandra James Music Foundation has chosen the Serenity Equine Rescue as it's final donation from the foundation."
Sandra James, poet, song-writer, environmentalist, and humanitarian activist, has been recognized for her combination of natural talent and tenacious determination to communicate through song. Her Foundation was organized by Sandra prior to her death and it's primary goal was to share her message thru her music, her story and encourage others to foster their love for music and our environment
We are so honored that we were chosen by the Sandra James foundation to receive the final donation in the amount of $13,300. Sandra will always be a part of Serenity. We will also be receiving a picnic table and bench in her honor that our volunteers can enjoy for years to come. Thank you to the Sandra James Foundation for their generous support of Serenity.
Our wonderful friend and well-known playwright Dr. Elena Hartwell has created a Blog for Serenity called Stories from Serenity. To follow Serenity's stories and keep abreast of other important and sometimes funny goings-on at the farm click on this link

In Memory of Pepper
On Thursday, May 14, Pepper was laid to rest. Having run of the farm, Pepper's typical day was to eat breakfast in her wheelbarrow next to her friends in the upper paddocks, wander the farm and munch and then sometimes nap in her stall. But when there was another horse in the barn who was on stall rest she would give up her day out on the farm and spend the time standing next to their stall watching over them. Sometimes she would wander back to her stall to eat a bit and then return to keep them company. She was an Angel to them all. On days when Patricia taught classes, she would go to the arena and help teach new volunteers how to halter, lead and groom. She was so patient and often fell asleep as multiple people groomed her. She was one in a trillion and we loved her deeply. We are so grateful that we had the opportunity to know her, for all the lessons she taught us and the love that she gave us. We will miss you dearly Pepper.
