About Us

Our Vision, Our Mission and Our Goals

Our current goal is to take in as many equine as space will allow; those who require special attention, are surrendered and those who may have been abused. In addition, each equine will be evaluated for adoptability, or who are able to be utilized in programs assisting developmentally disabled individuals, veterans, and local community-based support groups.

Our present strategies are to maintain and achieve our current and future goals and accomplishments by continuing to maintain an active role and partnership with our local community agencies, working side by side with our local community mental health department and local Veterans’ office. As well as maintaining our continuous involvement with being an active member of our local West Branch Chamber of Commerce. By participating with the other member organizations to help individuals who have special needs, learn about and participate in our equine based programs.

Our present long term goal is to become a certified facility in EAAT Programs (Equine Assisted Activities & Therapies), by becoming a certified PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Facility and to have a certified PATH instructor on-site.

Based on our highly proficient and dedicated volunteers, our experienced horsemanship of our individuals, and with our newly built 13,000 square foot equine facility, D&R ACRES HOBBY AND RESCUE FARM has the ability and know how to maintain and continue to grow and provide exceptional equine programs to and for our community desires.
