Any amount can go a long way to help us reach our goal. Donations of $100 or more will get your name displayed next to the arena.
Good footing is critical for rehabilitating lameness in horses. In fact, poor footing not only exacerbates lameness but is commonly considered to be one of the main contributors to early retirement in riding horses.
Many equines come to New England Equine Rescue with chronic lameness issues that require patience and proper care to rehabilitate. Without an arena, we are forced to perform our vet lameness exams in our paddocks, where the ground is often very hard and uneven or muddy and slick. This can make it difficult to evaluate and treat our equines. It also makes it difficult to perform necessary exercises and training that can help make our equines more-adoptable and suited for their new homes.
A proper sand arena would make a world of difference to our rehabilitation program, but in order to make it happen, we will need proper drainage, footing, and fencing. We need your help!
