Kisatchie Story of Hope_Page_01.jpg

Fort Polk Kisatchie Horses

At one time, these horses ran through the pine forests of Kisatchie as their ancestors did over 500 years ago.  They were rounded up and dispersed by the courts with no accountability for what could be the end of their journey.  Saved from a future of uncertainty, these small-statured horses have come to their forever home at the Sanctuary.  With many friends to greet them, fresh hay and water to replenish them, and a sense of peace from the nearby pine hill forest to call them, the horses have settled in their new home.  Make a donation today to help us give these horses their best second chance at life.


Please, select your Fort Polk Kisatchie horse friend. Thank you for your contribution.
