8 Easy Ways to Help
Our Wish List
A HOME of our own.
Safe Harbor Stables is a property that we lease from its owner, and it’s a wonderful home for us. But at some point in the future we need to own our own facility, a place where we can grow our organization and help more horses.
New Arena Footing
Safe Harbor’s covered riding arena is in desperate need of new footing. The current footing is old and has broken down, and sometimes makes our horses sore. New footing would help the horses in our training program stay sound and happy. To properly rehabilitate our current footing will cost about $7,000…which is not in the budget at the current time.
Our Wish List for the Farm:
We use these for manure pickup and stall cleaning. This is the Rubbermaid Big Wheel Cart — it’s great because you can pull it with one hand (unlike a standard wheelbarrow, which requires two hands). UNFORTUNATELY THESE DON’T LAST FOREVER so while we have several, they don’t all work!! Our volunteers work very hard, and we want them to have the best tools we can give them. So if you have the desire to help SAFE with a gift, buying us one of these carts is the surest way to win our hearts. Available at farm stores and Home Depot/Lowes. Used farm carts are welcome too!
