Helping Horses, Helping People

Brook Hill Farm, a non-profit horse rescue and therapeutic riding organization, exists to provide rehabilitation focused services and safe haven for unwanted horses, and offers a therapeutic riding program for personal growth and academic education for the community, helping both horses and people.

Helping Horses

Since the beginning, the farm has rescued, rehabilitated and placed over 550 horses!

Everyone works together to create a rehabilitation plan for each horse.

Horses that never fully recover live in sanctuary at the farm.

Helping People

Rockin’ Riders was designed to serve people with physical and mental diverse needs.

Gaits 4 Change works with youth in transition, those with autism and other disabilities.

In the Saddle Club, children get the whole horse experience.

Veterans come to help heal the horses and find they heal themselves. 

Seniors get to enjoy the benefit of horses, both on the ground and under saddle.


The Schooling with Horses program works with horses combined with academics, leading to high school graduation.
