Every year 200.000 racehorses have an unknown fate; the majority is going to the kill pens or straight to the slaughterhouse. Help me build a green and sustainable rescue and recovery center for these horses. Help me give these horses a second life in safe surroundings.

I seek funding to buy the horses free from their owner, and funding to build the facility to house them. But to save a horse you need to buy it from the owner who’s getting paid to slaughter the horse (the meat-price) which is about 300-600€/horse. I need funding for this.

Regarding the structure, my goal is to run a structure that can house 50 rescue-horses at a time. I need funding for this. At this moment I have gathered about 60% of the investment needed to launch this project.

All funds raised with will go straight to the startup of the structure and installations, but also purchase of the horses destined to be slaughtered. Examples of the expenses: remaining funds needed for the buildings, fences, boxes, showers, wood shavings, sand, water-facilities, training-facilities and everything that is needed to take care of horses like vaccines, covers for winter, hoof trims, grains etc.  

The world is rapidly changing and I think it is important to be visionary to assure that the horses remain safe even if the world should be changed. And it will help me keep the cost down for the daily care for the horses, so it’s a win-win plan.

The goal is to cover the whole structure in solar panels, and build the main buildings on top of huge underground tanks that recover filtered rain-water so we’ll be a green sustainable structure. We will also have a greenhouse to produce carrots, apples, garlic and beets all year round for the horses.

My focus is to provide care for the horses who often retire with medical issues both to the limbs, but also in their digestive systems.

Only through dedicated care and expert treatment can the horses regain their physical and mental strength, and become attractive for new potential owners.

After their reconversion/reformation is completed they will be sold to loving families and riders under a very strict contract that forbids the new owner to re-enter the horse in races, or send him to the slaughterhouse ever – it even forces the new owner to share news about the horse every year, to ensure the horses really get a great second chance in life.

I need you help now! The land is bought and the building-permits are under review. Any and all that wishes to donate or are more than welcome to come and visit anytime. We are placed in the most wonderful area of right-bank Bordeaux, surrounded by vineyards, and just a 15 minute drive from the medieval wine-city Saint-Émilion.

Once the structure is operational, 20% of the space will be rented and the facilities will be opened to the public for a small contribution to finance the daily work of rescuing these horses. We just need sufficient income, so that we do not have to rely permanently on charitable funding.
