Saving Gracie Equine Healing Foundation was founded in 2014 and was created to aid in the rescue of neglected, abused, and abandoned horses. Founder Barb Phillips rescued her first horse from a neglectful ranch in 2013 and, in doing so, realized that she could no longer stand idly by while the mistreatment of animals continued. Later that year, she rescued Gracie from the same ranch - and the rest is history.
Saving Gracie Equine Healing Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of horses "one horse at a time". Saving Gracie, along with it's partner, Blue Sky Utah, upholds the "Gold Standard" in equine care. We use the most current and progressive medical research to diagnose and treat the issues that are most always present in a rescued horse.
This philosophy, "one horse at a time" gives us the opportunity to help rescued horses recover from emotional and physical injury to the best of their ability. Once healthy, which can take years, we carefully find quality homes for them where they can be a lifetime companion for someone. For those horses that can't completely recover, we offer them a forever home at Gracie's Farm.
Our mission is to save the lives of horses “one horse at a time”, through rescue, sanctuary, medical care, compassion, and respect.
What We've Achieved
We've rescued a total of twenty horses, found some of them new homes, and provide most of them permanent sanctuary at Gracie's Farm, located in Wanship, Utah. Ten horses currently call Gracie's Farm their home. Gracie's Farm is also home to more than thirty other rescued animals, including twenty-five cows, twelve chickens, and three cats.
We have also rescued two mustangs and continue to gentle them with hopes that they will one day become trail horses. The Blue Sky Mustang Project acts as a shining beacon of hope for the remaining wild horses of the American West.
