Adopt a Horse
Adopt a Horse:  Each year it costs more than $5000 per horse to provide feed, farrier care, and  veterinary care to each of our 9 horses.. You can help support a member of our herd via  an in-person check or on the website:

Community Clean Up Day 
9 am - noon
Nov. 5, 2023
Help us make our fields safe and rock & rubbish free, plant a tree, and protect our 'aina.

If you have them - please bring your own work gloves, eye and ear protection, hand tools, and power tools (chain saws, weed wackers) of choice. Healing Horses Kauai has a limited supply. We will be clearing all fence lines,  running hot tape, picking rubbish and rock that have come to the surface during the spring rains, and out planting propagated native trees and shrubs. (And if we get really lucky with the timing of the barges, assembling more horse-stalls.)

If you have heavy equipment, trailers, or dumpsters to loan for the day please coordinate in advance by emailing

Email your interest in attending to: & complete a Liability and Photo Release Form (see Programs Tab > Parties and Special Events) and bring it to the event.

Please wear closed toe shoes.
