Arrowhead Ranch Horse Rescue, Inc. is a 501c-3 non-profit corporation in the state of New York. It is a sister company to Arrowhead Ranch & Retreat, located on the same property. Your tax-deductible contribution to our nonprofit will enable us to finish work on the historic barn and purchase needed equipment. We are very close! Once we begin to rescue horses, individual horse sponsorship plans will be available.
Starting in the spring of 2019 we set a goal to raise $25,000 to prepare the barn and the fields for horses. In 2019 we raised $6755 and in 2020 we raised $11,482 for a grand total of $18,237. Only about $7000 short of our goal. Not too shabby. Thanks to everyone who contributed! Check out all the progress we've made so far with your generous donations.
In May 2019 our volunteer team tore down one sagging section of the barn and we hired laborers to salvage the barn wood, cleanup, and dispose of the trash.
September and October 2019 the volunteer team built and installed new barn doors, windows, and other hardware.
March and June 2020 we cleaned and disposed of more junk in and around the barn. Getting the place ready for horses!
In May 2020 we built our first horse run-in shelter.
June and July 2020 were incredibly productive times. First we relocated the old trailer to the back of the concert field. No less than a monumental feat of ingenuity and engineering, and restored electricity to the barn.
Our first horse paddock was completed with a 5 ft. tall post and square wire fencing.
In August we installed surveillance cameras in and around the barn to keep an eye on things from a distance. Took a little while to get everything running smoothly but now we can watch the property from our phones and laptops. Which you gotta admit is pretty cool.
In September we completed the small fenced corral in front of the barn.
In October barn cleanup and renovation continued.
And then our first horses arrived!
In November the big paddock was completed with 4 strand wire fencing. The horses are very happy to have plenty of room to run and play and lots of fresh Catskill Mountain grass to eat!
Also in November the well was winterized, including a new shed, trenching, insulation, and a pipe running to a heated trough for the horses.
We also acquired an old Ford tractor!
Sometimes we ride on your horses...
