We hope you are all safe and healthy during this very difficult time. Our horses still need us to care for them every day, despite our human trials and tragedies, the work or rescue never stops.

Please join us for this virtual event and stay tuned for next month’s race and custom shirt!

Be well, Amy

We’re all in this together.

These bracelets are a wonderful reminder that we all need right now. We are physically separated, but I know we are all together in our love for horses and the health of our communities. The kind folks at Jammin Hammer, have created this bracelet fundraiser for SBF.
25% of each purchase will help a horse and you can make a difference.
