T.R.E.E.S. Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary


How You Can Help



There are several ways you can help elder horses who have outlived the good intentions of previous owners:






Make a tax-deductible contribution to Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary.







Or mail a donation to TREES, PO Box2260, Spotsylvania, VA 22553



"We are never completely free of our egos, but we can work to cultivate a psyche that recognizes when Ego is getting in our way.  We discover again and again in working with horses that as we gain inner balance, we are better able to surrender our Egos without collapsing emotionally."

     -- Adele von Rust McCormick, PhD, Marlena Deborah McCormick, PhD and Thomas E. McCormick, MD, Horses and the Mystical Path: The Celtic Way of Expanding the Human Soul, New World Library, 2004, pg 44

 You can also:


Offer a caring home to a horse who has served his owners long and well, but is no longer considered "valuable" enough to warrant further investment by those owners.


Help to educate owners struggling with their Equine Elders' changing needs.


Participate, with your Elders, in local shows, parades, and other events to demonstrate that a horse's abilities cannot be judged based solely on chronological age.
