Our facility is located on four acres of land in Sierra Vista, Arizona, and can accommodate up to ten horses at a time. It provides a safe, nurturing environment where horses are rehabilitated back to good health and evaluated for any training issues by our qualified volunteers. Once just a dream, the facility became a reality thanks to donations of money, materials, and equipment from the community. Local Eagle Scout troops donated many hours of their time to install water lines, erect fences for the stalls, and complete much-needed projects. Girl Scouts from the Sahuaro Girl Scout Council in Tucson have also supported our program by spending one weekend each year installing perimiter fencing, removing rocks from and maintaining the arena and round pen areas, and doing repairs on the buildings that store our hay and supplies.
The facility consists of:
- A 60′ round pen for training purposes and for use when people want to try out a horse
- A 200′ x 200′ riding arena
- Eight 100′x40′ runs equipped with electric fencing and shelters for relief from the sun, wind and rain
- A hay barn
- A barn to house our medical supplies and tack
- Two shaded pipe corral pens that are home to our mascot, Hercules, and his companion, Chico
- Nearby trails for those who would like to try a horse for trail riding purposes
For liability reasons our facility is not open to the public, but you can make an appointment to visit the horses by calling Ann Jost at 520-559-2224.
