Our History


Good Shepherd Healing Ministries Horse Rescue at Smoke Tree Farms in  Apache Junction, AZ was started in 2011. Without realizing it, I would  find myself at an auction saving horses from going to slaughter. I bring  them home and reabilatatethem with a healthy diet, vet care if needed,  and daily hands on contact from volunteers and staff here at the  facility, our goal being to re home them into a caring situation where  they will be healthy and happy.  We have also had horses surrendered to  us because people can no longer care for them.  Most of the horses have  been success stories but we have also had some sad stories as well.

We have volunteers from all aspects of life.  Some  are veterans who find a certain amount of peace working with abused and  neglected horses. There are also special needs children to come, visit  and spend time with our blind pony Angel Eyes or Ike, our pony with a  joint disease. We also have children that come just to help and be  around the horses or maybe go for a horseback ride for the very first  time.  We have a great group of volunteers but are always needing more!  We also have an adoption or sponsorship program.

 Smoketree farms  was started in 1985 as a boarding and training facility and then in 2011 was turned into a rescue.


Our Team

Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping the horses in any way possible. Without their loyal help we couldn't accomplish what we need to do to help all of the rescued horses that we have here now. they show the horses the much needed love that they deserve. If you think this would be a good fit for you then please contact us. We can always use more volunteers . contact us at 602-615-7075, or 574-780-0916.
