A 501(c)3 nonprofit charity … because every horse matters



We had a fabulous time on the weekend of Sept 17 & 18. Women's 40+ hands on horses workshop. Ok, so one of the "women" was only 12, but we overlooked that flaw... lol. This workshop was developed to offer women who have always wanted to get up close and personal with horses but never had the chance, the opportunity to do so. It was also for women who haven't been around horses for a while - offering a chance to get that much needed "horse fix!" We went over ground work basics, proper leading, round penning and control techniques; grooming and also got everyone back in the saddle. This was so much fun, and I think the ladies enjoyed themselves. We would love to offer this workshop again sometime! Continue reading

Getting Ready for Open House

The FLFES open house is coming up and we are all busy preparing for it. This mural on the door of the barn is going to be the backdrop for pictures of kids on the new donkey we are getting. It's not quite finished, but will be in another day. There will be hay rides and pony rides, yard sale, chinese auction, bake sale and more going on Sunday, the 7th of August.

First Light Farm Equine Shelter

CAN YOU HELP? This is Fanny. She is emaciated, injured, and possibly just lost a baby. She was tossed to auction for the sake of $150. She is in a holdover facility, but they are not equipped to provide the level of care she needs. Maple Hill has medical help and an experienced foster home waiting for her, but needs support for transport to Maine. Transport is arranged for Wednesday. Most of her expenses once she gets here are covered.
Even a small donation will help get Fanny on her road to recovery. Donations to Sanctuary at Maple Hill Farms are tax deductible.
PayPal is MHFSanctuary@yahoo.com. THANK YOU!
