My story

Serenity is a three year old Standardbred mare who came to us from off the track. She suffered an injury (a bowed tendon from where she smacked herself with another leg doing something silly on the track) that ended her racing career before it could even begin, but she doesn't let that slow her down!



She came to us while she was on stall rest, but as she's healed we've been able to let her go to turnout and gradually start working with her. Her leg is fully healed now and she's well into her rehab! She recently returned to us from a board and train program and is now ridable under saddle at a walk, trot, and canter.



This stunning mare has a ton of potential and we can't wait to help her realize it!



She's an absolute sweetheart with a great head on her shoulders, but she is still young and full of energy. She would do best with an experienced rider who is used to working with young, green broke horses.



If you are interested in Serenity and have experience with green horses, fill out an application for her on our website, waywardranch.org!

More about this rescue

Our Mission: To provide a quality life to the animals that need it most.

Wayward Ranch Animal Sanctuary, Inc. is a 501c3, tax exempt non-profit organization and all donations to our sanctuary are tax deductible.

The Dream:

Wayward Ranch was founded by three friends who, after working for other rescues for a long time, realized there was something missing from the average rescue model. No animal is perfect, and in the typical shelter system any behavioral concerns an animal had coming in are just exacerbated the longer they are kenneled or caged waiting for a home.

Many local shelters have taken to shipping puppies up from the south because they are more “adoptable” than the shelter animals we have here. However, this just floods are market and takes homes and resources from our local animals who are suffering as a result.

We are committed to a different type of rescue experience. We are a unique combination of adoption and sanctuary facility, taking the pressure of euthanasia away from animals who may not be generically adoptable. We also help our animals thrive, rather than deteriorate, as they wait for forever homes using a combination of enrichment and training techniques.
