Echo Canyon Equine Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to thoroughbred aftercare and sanctuary. We are a private facility, located in the horse friendly town of Cave Creek, Arizona. We accept owner donated and surrendered injured off the track thoroughbreds from racetracks on the west coast. Our private facility is located within 15 minutes of all of our veterinary needs, including two of the best equine surgeons in our state. All of our veterinary partners uphold our specialized standard of care, to help assure our horses' rehabilitation best prepares them for a second career. We also offer permanent sanctuary for horses requiring advanced medical care and will always provide a home for horses we have previously placed.
Echo Canyon Equine Foundation's board members and officers are 100% volunteer positions.
Our priority is to provide specialized medical care in a small, private setting for horses to recover from the demands of racing, rehabilitate from any injuries and prepare them for their future careers. We are advocates for the thoroughbreds who make the sport of horse racing possible. We will continue to do so by asking owners to financially support thoroughbred aftercare when retiring their horses. Together, with the support of a horse's connections, we are able to provide the best possible outcome for their retired athletes and the ability to find horses new careers.
