The Barefoot Ranch Horses
The Barefoot Ranch Horses

The Barefoot Ranch is a non-profit organization in Manitoba providing horses with a home, fresh water, food, shelter, hoof trimming, vet services, and loving care. Giving them their best lives is our passion and we are committed to this mission.

The Barefoot Ranch is located four miles North of Teulon, MB.  It is a 120-acre parcel of land that is well treed, featuring natural as well as man-made water sources.  It is the perfect piece of land for horses.  We have been at this location since 2012.  

Soon after moving here, we started to notice a need to provide a sanctuary in the area for horses. There were multiple circumstances that arose that brought many horses in need to us.  We began with the thought of rehabilitating the horses and selling them to recoup our expenses, but that was a short-lived dream. 

From 2012 to 2019, we rescued 19 horses on our own dime.  In 2016 we decided to incorporate to make our organization more official and to see if we could make a bigger impact in the community.

Last year with the severe drought in the area there was an increased need for an organization like ours. we have decided that we could help more horses and do more for the horses already here if we began to fundraise.
