Horses Have More Than Horse Power

Help change a child's life with the help of a horse at Save the Horses Rescue Farm located in northwest Forsyth County.


A child hugs a stuffed animal to comfort her. A real animal gives more comfort, especially when it's a horse!

Horses are naturally social and want to interact with whom ever they are with, horse or human or both. Children enjoy interacting as well and interacting with horses brings such empowerment to children, it changes their lives. 

This is why we started our Barn Buddy program for children in foster care and adopted children, too. Imagine what goes on in the mind of a child, living and trying to fit into a permanent or temporary family situation. Some children have abandonment issues; trust issues, fear, and blame themselves for their situation. Horses help children deal and overcome these fears and problems.

Our Barn Buddy program needs adults who would love to be a buddy for one of these children. Come and learn how you can help make this program successful.

You can be a hands on help, a virtual helper through the Internet or fund raise. We need you.

The generous support of our community, our volunteers and supporters make this Barn Buddy Program successful.

Horses are great animals to have. I was wondering, if I ever purchase a horse, should I also purchase horse medical insurance? http://www.arkagency.com
