Where you'll be

TCTC is a "Forever Home" for 12 horses - all sizes, color and breeds - with unique barns, turnouts, indoor/outdoor areas to work/play. The sanctuary provides a peaceful environment for the horses, volunteers, indigenous wildlife, plants and visitors. Gardens, orchards, water, woodsy trails, wildflowers, green pastures, and brain-engaging obstacles to challenge everyone prevent equine boredom and create opportunities to enjoy the beautiful acreage
