   The Sanctuary is "A Place of Healing"

We Are

Journey to the Heart Horse Sanctuary

Our Story

It all started with a rescue horse named Lady. She was relinquished to the Sanctuary. After several months of Rehabilitation I had a Woman named Sheila approach me about adopting her. Lady still needed to continue to be rehabbed. So Sheila decided to bring out Angie from "Touch of Hope" to help with Lady's healing process. She in turn brought Terry "Wild Animal Trainer" and Cindy who decided to join our Board. Then Terry brought a Talented Couple Dick and Sue, They brought Meg and things took off from there..........
