saving horses from
abuse and abandonment
our rescued horses
have a bright future
help us rescue horses in need
by making a donation
Bright Futures Farm is a trusted, well-respected 501(c)(3) equine rescue
and sanctuary located in Cochranton, Pennsylvania.
Since 2000, our mission has been to save horses from abuse, abandonment, and slaughter.
Once a horse is rescued, we provide medical care, rehabilitation and schooling and then adopt many of them into
loving, forever homes. Our rescue also provides a permanent sanctuary to elderly and disabled horses that have
been callously discarded because they are "too old," "too sick," or unwanted.

START THE NEW YEAR OFF RIGHT!
Will you make the difference for one of our very senior seniors in 2019? We have three horses that are now over the age of 30, the youngest being 31. They are on a diet of pelleted feed, rice bran oil, soaked beet pulp pellets and chopped, soaked alfalfa. They receive 3-5 meals a day - it depends on how much they eat at a time and how long it takes them to eat. To feed one of these horses for just one day costs $9.60. To feed just one of them for a month is $288. Will you provide food for a day, a week or a month to one of our very senior seniors? Click here to learn more.
TRUSTWORTHY AND PROVEN
Bright Futures Farm has been a trusted 501(c)(3) charity since 2000. We are accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA) and have been since 2014. Being accredited by TAA means that we have proven, through independent documentation, that we are a transparent organization, use our funds wisely and provide excellent care to the horses at our facility. The TAA inspects our books and our facility several times a year.
We receive no funding from state or federal agencies. We rely solely on donations for support. Your financial support provides the food, supplements and care each horse here needs to stay healthy in their golden years.
HELP US DO WHAT WE DO BEST
AND GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE
Making a donation will allow us to continue to do what we do best...save horses that are suffering, abused, and neglected. The horses we rescued from the hanging barn in May were with us just five months and because of their dire condition, it cost over $18,000 to make them healthy again. Medical expenses for the six horses from the hanging barn alone were over $10,000 and funds raised for their care totaled $8,500...well short of what was needed. Will you join us and make a one-time donation? Better yet, will you become one of our wonderful monthly sponsors? (You can also check with your employer to see if they will match donations to 501(c)(3) charities and double your donation!)
The before and after photos of Cider from the hanging barn say it all. They tell the story of what we do. Please donate now, because your gift is truly the gift of life and we need your help!

Open House 2018 was a great success! The yard and tack sale and gift basket raffle were a huge success again this year. We received over $600 in in-kind donations of horse feed, cat food, and litter. And, Fast Market (Markie) brought new friends from Ohio, West Virginia, New York, North Carolina, and Indiana to visit!
