The cost of rescuing and caring for a horse is approximately $300 per month. Our program fees help to support horse rescue and instructor fees. In some cases we may be able to provide scholarships to offset costs for those with a need. Application forms for scholarships are below. Please mail forms to: Beech Brook Farm, 125 Fishtown Rd, Mystic, CT 06355.
In our class we will learn equine safety, horse terms and conformation, grooming, nutrition and health. Each class starts with a short discussion period on that days topic, followed by hands-on work with our horses and donkeys. Once youth have completed the class they will meet regularly throughout the year to continue to learn and interact with horses as part of the Horse Rescue Team program .
SESSION 1: TBD for 2014

Making services and programs affordable for all participants whose application for registration is accepted is a goal of Beech Brook Farm Equine Rescue (BBFER). We are able to fulfill this mission through donations, fundraising, and the administration of a limited scholarship program based strictly on need. Anyone wishing to apply for a scholarship must visit the farm and meet with the Scholarship Committee prior to submitting the application.
Individuals applying to participate in a BBFER program may request a Scholarship Application and submit it with an application for participation. Action is taken on the Scholarship Application only after an individual is scheduled into a BBFER program.
Ongoing participants who did not receive a scholarship award for the prior semester’s enrollment at BBFER may request a Scholarship Application during the registration period for the current semester and submit it for consideration.
Ongoing participants who received a scholarship award for the prior semester’s enrollment at BBFER are required to submit a Scholarship Application annually during the registration period for the fall semester.
All information provided on the Scholarship Application is kept in strict confidence. A Scholarship Committee reviews applications and may find it necessary to request additional information. This would be arranged on a confidential basis.
A scholarship is awarded in the form of a credit toward the tuition for scheduled services; the participant is notified of the award by a notation on the invoice for the services scheduled.
