About Us

A Horse Tale officially became a registered “not-for profit” in the spring of 2013, but the story really began several years before that when founder Kerri Fenoff fell in love with a horse named Tucker. Fast-forward to 2012.
Kerri was helping out on a farm where the owner unfortunately fell ill and could no longer sustain the farm and its animals.
The family had scheduled an appointment to slaughter their 15 Appaloosas horses. This is where Kerri’s devotion, determination and motivation came in to play. She did whatever it took to help those animals, and in the end, all of the horses were saved.

That moment in history sparked the vision to help build a foundation, a purpose, a goal, and a mission to help save horses in need.

Our Mission

With approximately 100 dedicated members and volunteers we have established an organization that is trying to make a difference. We rescue, re-home and provide a loving and caring “forever-home” for those we can save.

Through hard work and perseverance we are glad to say that we became a fully Registered Canadian charity (#83218 8387 RR0001) in January 2015.

We will continue to save as many horses as we can and provide them with the quality of life that they deserve while using the community that surrounds us.

Our Vision

As we strive to help these majestic creatures, we have also found that they in turn have helped some of our members. We have seen firsthand results in helping children and adults with various life-challenges such as:

  • Generalised Anxiety disorder
  • Tourettes Syndome
  • Aspergers and Autism
  • and other ailments both physical and psychological 

Our vision is to further expand our reach by introducing equine contact and therapeutic services to help people in need.

Equine therapy, has been proven to help certain handicaps and conditions and we feel this will further help achieve our goal and give back to the community.

Caroline’s story is an example of how our vision is already making a difference in lives…both equine and human.
