Sponsor A Horse Today
  
Sponsoring a rescue horse is one of the most important ways you can help support the mission of Field of Dreams. Most people do not realize the significant expense involved in caring for rescue horses. Each month, money is spent on providing shelter, hay, feed, veterinary and farrier care, medicine, training and daily socialization for the animals in our care. 
You can help provide some of the necessary funding for our current and future equines by participating in our new monthly sponsorship program. Sponsorships make great gifts for birthdays, holidays and other occasions as well. All of the rescue horses in our care are in need of sponsors. 
Please help provide the care our rescues deserve by enrolling in Field of Dreams' Horse Sponsorship Program today.

Checking in with Kallie -by Kathy Rerko-Smith
 
As part of Field of Dreams Horse Rescue and Adoption's efforts to maintain contact with our rescues who have been adopted, I recently had the pleasure of visiting Kallie.
 
I met Kallie and her owner at the barn where Kallie is boarded and lessons three times a week. They are learning dressage and also doing some jumping. Both also enjoy taking trail rides on the property. During my visit I was able to watch an hour long lesson. Kallie did very well under saddle and listened to commands very well. It was obvious that Kallie and her owner are very happy together and Field of Dreams couldn't be happier for them.
