The Good Horsekeeping Project . . . Our Vision, Your Goals, Together We Can Make It Happen
The Good Horsekeeping Project is founded on the basic premise that the more knowledge a person has about horse care, the greater the chance a horse has of maintaining a quality home for life. We strive to educate all ages and levels of horse enthusiasts about horse care and offer advice on ways to make it more efficient.
Barn Savers Inc., our product division, is constantly at the drawing board designing new products to keep your horse happy and make your job easier. Through our Barn Store, we sell our products and advertise other products that we believe to have the utmost value. A percentage of the profits from the Barn Store and other programs run by the Good Horsekeeping Project will be donated back to horse rescues so that even more horses may find their forever homes.
If you have a moment, please read on . . . this is our passion and love.
Many have described the dynamic environment of horses of as being in “another world.” As you enter into the realm of horse ownership it more closely resembles a whole other solar system. Think about it for one minute. We have our own language. The costs are astronomical. And like beings from another planet, this environment can turn even the smallest women, into creatures that are unaffected by weather, don’t seem to feel pain and have super human strength. I say this as a kindred spirit. I am a petite woman, who has helped to load several tons of hay. . . Done barn chores in blizzards, hurricanes and blazing heat . . . And who has had to stare down fear and a 10:1 body mass ratio to help right a cast horse. This world changes us. THEY change us to a point where there is nothing that we wouldn’t do or attempt to do for them.
That is why the Good Horsekeeping Project was formed. There is a strange gravity to our world that defies all natural definitions of what should be possible in a day, in finances . . . in life itself. Like a solar system, all of our “planets” need to be in their place in orbit for our horses to have quality homes and for us as their humans to remain whole. We can’t always do it alone. The proof is in the overflowing rescues and the ever increasing numbers of horses that need to enter them. We need to defy the gravity of the world that we live in today and pull these creatures into our orbit, where anything is possible. It is our dream and our mission to help as many people as possible form loving homes for their horses. When we start to work as one force, a community of people passionate about horses, no matter our individual level of involvement, it is then that we can accomplish great things.
