Welcome to Sumner Brook Farm

Sumner Brook Farm, Inc. (SBF) is a non-profit organization located in Middletown, Connecticut. SBF works everyday to reduce the number of horses sent to auction or slaughter by accepting surrendered horses, rehabilitating and retaining them, and offering them for adoption as well as providing educational opportunities for the community. We serve the local horse community of Middletown, Connecticut and surrounding areas.

Horse Programs

Sumner Brook Farm rehabilitates, retrains, and rehomes horses that have been abandoned, neglected, or mistreated. We provide retirement and treatment care for horses unable to work due to illness, injury, or age.

SBF accepts horses surrendered due to personal hardship, on behalf of family members who need to place horses whose owners are ill, injured, or have passed away, and horse owners seeking a quiet, healthy environment for horses ready for retirement. We currently have three horses available for adoption! Check them out here.

How to Help

Every gift, no matter how small, helps us continue our mission to rescue, rehabilitate, re-train, and rehome horses who are in need. We accept donations through our website form or PayPal.

We are always looking for volunteers! To learn more, visit our volunteering page and also checkout out our SBF branded apparel here.

Events

We offer education to the community about proper equine care and management throughout the lifetime of the horse as well as fundraising and community events. Check out our events page for more information.

The Sumner Brook Farm Difference

SBF is not just another horse rescue. We stand by the belief that to help the horses, you have to help the people, too. Horses get into trouble when people get into trouble and are afraid to ask for help. SBF will make it easier for those in need to get help before the horses are neglected. Early intervention can prevent neglect, horses going to auction, and provide owners with a sense of relief that their horse is safe and will always be safe.

Sadie’s glamour shots after her makeover today. Caleb was so annoyed with having to stand, that he charged out into his paddock like he’d been stuck inside for days. It was like 30 minutes. Horses don’t like #isolation and #socialdistancing either. #day3 #quarantine #corona #rescuehorses #solofarming #creativefarming #sbfsadie #sumnerbrookfarm #bearpawbarn #middletownct @ Sumner Brook Farm Equine Rescue and Retirement
