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.

Brrr! Chilly this morning! And the impending storm tonight is a reminder that we need some critical items as winter approaches. Here is our updated Amazon Wish List! Some of these items can be found for less on other websites. Blankets must be full neck design and waterproof.

Please help if you can! Share, donate, spread the word! We have 4 horses and 2 of them currently do not have permanent shelter and those paddocks are not useable in winter. We are able to move them around when it rains, but with winter approaching we are adding this barn to make sure they have a dry place to get out of the weather. We need more donations to cover the cost. Delivery day is fast approaching! We still need $1,125.00

Sadie earned my child safe seal of approval today with my niece Ivy. I knew she was good from her history but some things you need to be sure of yourself. I’m the safety freak, so if a horse is not safe or appropriate for you, I will tell you right up front. This perfect little mare is available for adoption to the perfect home. Amy@sumnerbrookfarm.com
