Since 1999, Epona Farm has provided sanctuary, and a safe and structured environment for humans and animals . The Farm is a peaceful place created to provide refuge from the daily stresses that affect our lives. Our mission is to bring people together with horses, to learn from the ground up, and to bring restorative peace, wellness, and new beginnings to both horse and human.
The Epona Farm Sanctuary Foundation, Inc. is a small group of like minded volunteers who created a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to provide support to Epona Farm Sanctuary. Epona Farm is a safe place of sanctuary for horses and humans. A place of peace, tolerance, and kindness. Through volunteerism, outreach and humane education, we hope to to make the world a kinder place for horses, and fill it with people who will care for them, and love them. Epona Farm Sanctuary is funded through its many learning and outreach programs, and by the generous support of people just like you. Learn more about the foundation, and how you can help!
Equine Assisted Learning and Wellness
Each of us is unique, each of us a little broken, each of us capable of greatness and goodness...
We aren't a therapeutic riding or Hippotherapy provider, although our roots are there and we have extensive experience and multiple certifications in the field. We created Epona Farm Sanctuary to help horses, and bring to light their true gifts as natural healers and teachers. While you're here, you'll learn to bring out those qualities through your interactions with them, and along the way you will learn to help yourself.
Find out about Epona Farm, our mission, our methods, and the results of our advocacy to end the abuse of horses.
How to help
You can become a Friend Of The Farm, volunteer, help us network, learn to ride, learn about yourself, or have a visit.
Epona Farm was the first in the Southern Tier to offer a comprehensive Equine Assisted Learning and Mental Health Wellness program in 2009, and continues to specialize in these vital, life changing services. Colleen and Allyson are the creators and facilitators of HOPE on Horseback, the Willis Ashely Foley Jr. Warriors and War Horses program for Veterans, and the Excelsior Thoroughbred Advancement Program. These programs, and others when possible, are sponsored through the Borrowed Freedom Equine Assisted Therapies scholarship program.
To ensure the emotional and physical well-being of the horses and volunteers, Epona Farm offers its services
by appointment May through November each year. We are closed to the public from January 1 - April 31.
