How does sponsorship work?
After you set up your sponsorship using the the payment button we receive an email and will be in contact with you the same day.
If you would like to come visit your horse after you've set up sponsorship, we will send you the liability waiver, set up a time and provide directions to the ranch.
Sponsorship is a yearly commitment and automatically bills monthly and is a tax deductible donation.
What if the horse I've sponsored passes away?
If that occurs we would be happy to switch your sponsorship to another horse or take in another horse in need of sanctuary. If you prefer to end your sponsorship after their passing that is also an option.
Star and Scout both need Sponsors
What a difference the love and care we have given her has made !
We rescued Star and her foal Scout in January 2018. Both were extremely malnourished & neglected.

She has gotten used to being spoiled and loves it !
She's very cute and sweet
Star and her foal Scout will never experience hunger or neglect again. They will live their lives out together at VRR.
We rescued Scout in January 2018. He was a very malnourished, unhandled stud . We got him healthy, gelded him and continue to work on his training.
He loves attention and always meets us at the gate and hates when we leave.
Cochise was a kid's camp trail horse at a State Park for many years. He was direct sold to a Slaughter Yard because he was having lameness issues. He only has one eye because his left eye was kicked by a mule many years ago according to his former wranglers at the State Park.
He's beautiful and perfect just as he is. His life is no less valuable because of his disabilities.
He's enjoying retirement at the ranch and doesn't have to work but he is still capable of light trail riding on the flat areas of the ranch with a child or small adult.
He has lots of personality!
Since being at VRR he's put on lots of weight and gets the best farrier care.
