Sumner Brook Farm (SBF) is a non-profit organization located in Middletown, Connecticut dedicated to reducing the number of horses being sent to auction or slaughter. We rehabilitate, retrain, and re-home horses that have been abandoned, neglected, or mistreated, and provide treatment care for horses unable to work due to illness, injury, or age. We offer education to the community about proper equine care and management throughout the lifetime of the horse.
SBF is not just another 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. We want to make it easier for those who need help to get it before the horses are neglected. Early intervention can prevent neglect, prevent horses from going to auction, and provide owners with a sense of relief that their horse is safe…and always will be safe.
