Welcome to Tierra Madre
Horse & Human Sanctuary
Tierra Madre Horse & Human Sanctuary, 501 (c)(3) provides a forever home for 29 neglected, abandoned or abused horses. The magnificent herd of horses who have graced our presence, many coming from lives of abuse and misfortune, are honored, cared for, and brought back to health and happiness they may have never known. The horses in return are the primary healers and facilitators for providing a non-judgmental space for children and adults to realize more productive and fulfilled lives. Through our specialized programs, we empower individuals to gain a sense of accomplishment and achievement by working with the horses in a variety of non-mounted activities.
We rely on support from our community and dedicated sponsors to help us provide specialized programs for a variety of groups including special needs, and children on the autism spectrum to seniors from the local retirement communities, to realize the life-changing gifts we all receive through working with our equine partners.
