The ground breaking is also coinciding with an open house party and the public is invited to enjoy free lunch and free pony rides.

May 31st – Open House and Ground Breaking
Please join us here at the Sanctuary next Sunday, 11am to 4pm, May 31st for our annual Open House and Ground Breaking Ceremony for our new Equestrian Center.
Lunch is provided and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and give tours of the existing MFMN grounds and facilities. You are welcome to mix and mingle with the rescue horses and learn more about the adoption process.
The MFMN Open House and Ground Breaking is a time to celebrate the addition of a new equestrian center and demonstrate the many facets of the existing horse rescue and sanctuary operations. Construction of the new Equestrian Center was made possible by the generous donation of a single donor.
The nearly 29,000 square foot facility will allow MFMN to better fulfill their mission to rescue and care for horses of all ages, genders, breeds and health conditions. In addition, plans are in the works to offer equine-assisted therapy programs for people with physical disabilities and emotional challenges.
Hope you all can join us! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 573-216-3838.
