Brook Hill Farm is a fully accredited sanctuary through the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries, and the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance to support the ongoing care of retired thoroughbreds that are a part of the herd. The farm guarantees all of the horses a lifetime of care. Many neglected and injured horses never fully recover. Brook Hill Farm is a place for horses to enjoy their retirement. Horses are domesticated creatures that thrive when given a purpose. Here at Brook Hill Farm the horses are tended to on a daily basis, being fed, groomed, and loved. These horses remain on the property in sanctuary and are cared for by the staff and volunteers for the remainder of their life.
Many neglected and injured horses never recover. These horses are then placed in the sanctuary program.
Brook Hill Farm has developed an innovative companion program that allows local horse owners to borrow retirees for a limited time span. These horses act as a friend for a horse that lives alone or stays with a foal as it is weaned. Book Hill is proud to report that many of these temporary placements have led to permanent homes. This allows the farm to be able to provide retirement for additional difficult to place horses.
Many other retired horses become part of the Equine Assisted Learning Programs, helping the youth and adults find healing through the bond of horses.

Brook Hill Farm guarantees all of the horses at the farm a safe haven throughout their life, whether in a forever home, in one of our therapeutic programs, or at the farm in sanctuary. If an adoptive home is not successful, the adopter is required to return the horse to Brook Hill, keeping it in our safety net. Brook Hill takes pride in the fact that it does rescue right, and provides for horses for their entire life!
