Happy Holidays


As 2015 draws to an end we extend our wishes for a wonderful holiday season and much happiness and success in the New Year.
I want to express my Thanks and appreciation
for your contributions, large and small
encouraging words over this past year.
Our transition has taken much longer than anticipated, but as new ideas and plans are incorporated I am excited to know we can do even more for our deserving horses. 
From Our Barn
Merry Christmas...
Happy New Year!!!

Spring 2015

Things at Lone Oak are quiet these days with no new horses coming in. We unfortunately are not accepting new horses at this time, instead we are focusing on the development of the ranch, and supporting areas so we can regroup and be able to stay strong and successful in our efforts.

We are busy developing plans, and getting ready with the new projects. Those include moving barns, tack rooms, creating an obstacle course, adding an arena and a new round pen, replacing fencing and putting up new fence. To date we have set up the new round pen and have had the initial prep for the barn pad completed.

The new site of the arena will encompass the areas of the barns and more, in total should be approx. 80 x 120.

The projects are many and we could use help for many things. If you are interested in being a part of our continued success please contact us. We are accepting new members to our board, and need volunteers with construction and electrical experience. General labor is always needed and welcome.
If you are not able to lend a helping hand but want to support our efforts please consider a donation of funds or supplies for our rescue facilities. All donations are tax deductible.

We look forward to seeing the projects completed and our rescue back in full swing!

New hapenings in 2015

New happenings in 2015
With the New Year well underway our plans for the new location have been firmed and are underway. with trial and error in our physical set up, we have discovered the need to relocate key elements of the rescue. This means we are relocating both of our barns to permanent locations and making room for a new arena and two round pens, utilizing our rustic barns for tack rooms and refurbishing our pole barn. As well there will be a volunteers area where we can have refreshments and other formal viewing areas to watch events and horses under training.
To make time and moneys available we have had to halt any incoming horses and all public activities both to ensure public safety and to focus on improvements. If you would like to donate to these vital improvements we would appreciate your support, and remember all donations are tax deductible, donations can be made through our PayPal under the name of Lone Oak Rescue. If you have a skill you would like to share, we are in need of labor help and electrical and pluming work on the new buildings. To date we have relocated the largest of our round pens, and have started the ground work for the largest barns location, falling trees and removing boulders. The pens have found permanent locations, water has been rerouted and permanent single waters are being installed.
We are hoping all will be completed by summer to open back to regular activities and by fall include some public events such as trail challenges and demonstrations.
As always we welcome suggestions, comments and would love to hear from those interested in being a part of our work. If you are interested in office work, helping with adoptions, intakes and placements exercising, evaluating and assisting with training please contact us at We may be a small rescue but we are very proud of our success!
