Pony Tales is at work 7 days a week rescuing, sheltering, and caringfor dozens of horses all throughout the year. We often have many ironsin the fire at one time as we strive to help as many horses as we can.
Come join us for 12 miles of scenic trails on Saturday, with a drink stop and a lunch break. Saturday Night flip-flop chicken, music, and raffles!
Spend the night, and wake up to a hot breakfast Sunday morning and jump back on the trails for another great day in the saddle! Primitive Camping available. A fun, relaxing way to spend your Labor Day weekend and support a wonderful cause! As always, Pony Tales Alumni ride for free with their adopted horse! For more information, contact
The horse rescue heroes at work here at Pony Tales are always busy. From the moment we get out of bed in the morning until we have done everything that we can for the day, we are constantly at work striving to help as many horses as we can, to provide the care and training that those currently in our shelter need, and finding the best homes for the beautiful souls here. Our down time is often spent in quiet reflection coupled with moments of sadness and moments of sheer joy. We relish the quiet days around here, but are always prepared as you just never know what tomorrow will bring.
This year, we have started Pony Tales 3-6-5. It is a daily blog or Facebook post about our daily lives here at Pony Tales. Follow us as we share our ups and downs and learn what a day in the life of a horse rescue hero is like.
Season 1 of Horse Rescue Heroes has begun being released! Be sure to tune in to Amazon Prime as the episodes load, but catch them sooner as they are released on YouTube!
In 2019, we were selected as the recipient of the first Full Circle of Life grant from Horse Plus Humane Society. We received $10k towards the building of a much needed larger barn as well as 6 months of mentoring during which we piloted a full circle of life rescue that was filmed for the reality TV show Horse Rescue Heroes. Since that time, Pony Tales has transformed into a full circle of life horse shelter.
Pony Tales invites you to be a part of a very special limited commemorative opportunity by purchasing a personalized engraved brick. The bricks will be installed at the entryway to the new barn. The entryway will consist of a custom brick patio and pillars and offer the inviting, user/volunteer-friendly atmosphere that we are striving for. When complete, the entryway will be the path that every beautiful
soul who enters our gates will walk across. This is your chance to support Pony Tales with a donation that will last a lifetime. Brick purchases will benefit thousands of equines in need for years to come and will symbolize
your commitment and love for animals. Bricks can be inscribed in honor or memory of an animal, an animal lover, a donor’s name, in memory of a loved one, a family name, or a business name. Two brick sizes are available:
4×8″ brick ($50) or an 8×8″ brick ($100). Clip art and custom images can be added as well. Images below are examples.
Be sure to visit us at the Midwest Horse Fair this year at Booths 5 & 6 in the Coliseum and cheer on our STAR Team members Kenzi and Jami as they compete in the Mountain Trail Challenge with Shasta and Aspen!

Many horse owners can get caught up in the day to day routine of caring for their horse. It's important to get out and do something fun with your horse!
