Facts about Sugar

  • Breed: Other/Unknown Mix
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
This special mare will make the perfect family horse. She is sound, young, adorable, and as calm and gentle as you could hope for. We have ridden Sugar and she is green broke, and is steady and easy on the ground. She trailers well, and we've taken her to an exhibition where she didn't turn a hair at the crowds. She adores children, and with a few more miles under saddle could make a loving and fun addition to any family. Truly, one of the nicest horses we've ever been around! Approximately 5 years old and 14 hands.

About Sonoma County Change Program

About Our Rescue Group...

The CHANGE Program was formed in 2007 to support local law enforcement in managing equine humane cases including neglect, abuse, abandonment and relinquishment. CHANGE is a state and federally accredited non-profit organization. It is not a county agency and is supported entirely by private donations.

CHANGE provides 24/7 emergency transportation and foster care to horses in the custody of local law enforcement. All horses in the program receive complete veterinary care, hoof care, specialized nutritional support, and their own set of care supplies made possible by generous community donations to the CHANGE Tack and Supply Donation Program. Once rehabilitated, horses are then adopted by permanent loving families

CHANGE also serves the community through education and outreach events such as law enforcement training seminars on equine-related subjects and low-cost castration clinics for the public. CHANGE also has served as a subsidiary in several courtroom cases by providing expert witness testimony. Some of the cases set legal precedent and garnered national media attention.
