MissionGAR exists to provide a safe haven for the off-track thoroughbreds, abandoned, or abused horses of the Virgin Islands. GAR strives to promote equine stewardship, humane treatment and community involvement through the rehabilitation and retraining of the horses and ponies in our care for use in educational youth programming, outreach opportunities and community events.
What We DoWe offer horseback riding lessons for all ages, camps for youth to learn about horsemanship in the Virgin Islands, community events such as birthday parties and holiday events, and beach trail rides for visitng tourists as well as locals.
In the future, we hope to provide vocational training opportunities in equine professions to add to the revival of the agricultural industry in the Virgin Islands, equine assisted therapy for youth with disabilities, veterans, and those in need of mental health services, as well as become the hub for horsemanship resources in the Virgin Islands.
