A community, not a place.

The horses we serve are grateful beneficiaries of the kindness and support of an amazing community.  

In turn, they return the favor by giving back to the community, too!   Here are some of the collaborations and partnerships that help show the world what 'This Old Horse' can do.

Friends of the American Saddle Horse
FASH has selected This Old Horse as their charitable partner and beneficiary of their Spring Show!
Polo for Philanthropy
We have been selected as a beneficiary for the Derby Day Affair, Polo en Blanc and the Polo Classic events!
University of MN Equine Extension
Our horses spend summers as research subjects at the University campus helping doctoral students and master’s candidates with research papers and undergrads developing horse keeping skills.
Minnesota Harvest Horse Show
The largest indoor hunter/jumper show in the country offers us a great way to share our story with elite horse and human athletes during their annual Charity Show.
MN Horse Welfare Coalition
We are board members of the MHWC, supporting unwanted and at-risk horses through the Hay Bank and annual Castration Clinics.
Special Olympics Minnesota
Our Red Jack delegation trains year round for the competitive State show each August.
Mom's Club of Hastings
Moms and kids and horses! What a better way to spend a day!
American Trakehner Association
Wishbone Ranch is the home of StarTraks Trakehners. The American Trakehner Association held an inspection at our home base Wishbone Ranch in August, 2016.  Exciting, educational and enlightening.
Horse Crazy Market
Our great friends at Horse Crazy Market collaborate and support our efforts at every turn.
Dakota County 4H
4-Hers in the Horseless Horse Project get hands-on experience with the retired and rescued horses of  This Old Horse--including a chance to show our horses at the County Fair!
Tokigawa (Japan) High School Soccer
Each summer, we invite the Tokigawa High School girl's soccer team for a day at the farm.  As residents of a Tokyo, Japan suburb, most of these elite athletes have never seen a horse or a farm.   The team comes to Minnesota for an international soccer tournament in Blaine.  Our horses make great international ambassadors!
Dakota Co. Soil & Water District
Helping our gardens grow.
Favorite Cowgirl
Great coffees, great horses, great friends always there to support our cause.
