The residents of The Big Purple Barn are what makes our programs so unique. Most farms are operated for profit and cater to the general public, utilizing horses purchased for the specific type of lessons the farm offers. Here at our farm, we utilize the unique character of horses that have needed another chance in life. In taking the time to save and enrich their lives, we give them a chance to do the same for the people who choose to become a part of our farm. Our horses have come from many walks of life and each have unique stories to tell and special talents to share. They are the heart and soul of our program and what makes The Big Purple Barn such a special place to be a part of. We hope you will visit our horse's bio pages and learn about their characters. Please be patient as we update the site to include new pics and bio info about our horses as we want to be sure to capture the unique spirit of each animal. If you would like to meet our horses in person, please contact us for a tour! firstname.lastname@example.org
Please click on the individual names to meet each horse and pony, see their photos and learn a little more about them. We are working hard to update each resident's page with complete information about them so please contact us if you want to know more!
It costs approximately $150 per month per resident to provide the basics of quality feed, hay and bedding. We are in need of individuals, groups, businesses, and families to SPONSOR our residents. Your sponsorship is TAX DEDUCTIBLE and 100% of your contribution goes DIRECTLY to the care of the resident you choose. If you live in the MD/DC/VA/PA/DE area, we encourage you to visit regularly with your sponsored resident. If you don't live close by, we will send you regular updates! Our residents deserve a top quality life of love and care and with your generous help, we can assure we provide it for them! We have several levels of sponsorship, so please contact us for information or to sign up!!
