ABOUT

ABOUT

The Horse Project rehabilitates, re-trains ,and re-homes

rescued horses who have been abandoned, abused and neglected.

We work to prepare rescued horses for new and caring homes that best suit their individual skills, talents, and potential. We are an all-volunteer group partnering with professionals for the horse's health, conditioning, and ground and under saddle training.

The Horse Project offers experiences for people that promote the horse-human connection and educate people about these amazing animals.  

Located in Santa Barbara, California, we are part of Saffyre Sanctuary, Inc.,

a nonprofit 501c (3) rescue and sanctuary organization.     

SUMMER HORSE CAMP

2024 Summer Horse Camp

All experience levels welcome! 

 

The Horse Project’s 2024 summer horse camp provides an opportunity to learn about different aspects of horse handling, care and barn etiquette. 

 

This hands-on experience will teach campers how much work goes into caring for horses. Throughout the week, campers will learn the ins and outs of how to maintain the horses’ homes, hoof care, and other special horse needs. Specifically, they will be taught about proper feeding routines, grooming, and exercising the horses.

 

Campers will also get a chance to connect with horses through massage and meditation. They will learn about energy work and how other somatic methods like aromatherapy can relax horses’ minds and muscles. 

 

Campers will learn various important communication skills as they are applicable to horses. They will learn about many nonverbal cues including body language, eye contact, touch, and sound as they develop their bonds with the horses. 

 

This camp is adaptable to people with any level of horse experience, as they will learn through each activity. We welcome all kids ages 8 to 16 whether they are new to horses or have spent their lives around them, and guarantee they will walk away having learned something new.

ADOPTION

We match the right horse with the right person.  We are looking for adopters who want to partner with the horse just as it is and provide a  loving, forever home.

RETIREMENT

There comes a time for retirement of your well-loved horse. Horse retirement is more than being "put out to pasture."  We offer excellent care in the company of other horses.

Our compassionate re-homing service provides assistance to horse owners who are going through financial hardships, foreclosures, illness, relocations, and other adversities.
