The How-To's and the Why's for the Horseman and Horse Lover

Gallant Hope Farm is located in rural Northwestern New Jersey.

Here in the hills of Sussex County our horses share 30 acres of fields, pasture, and woods.

We are dedicated to their care and feeding. Though we are not a boarding facility,

we do occasionally have horses boarded with us, and we always have room for a friend in need.

The farm is registered with several agencies for disaster relief.

Kind, rational horsemanship and a natural lifestyle for our horses are our focus.





In an effort to further the education of horse owners and horse lovers not able to own a horse just now,

we offer a few links to sites of interest, some words of wisdom, and a chance to share the love by clicking on the Animal Rescue Site's link and donating,

at no cost to you, food to feed abandoned animals through North Shore Animal League and other,

equally worthy organizations. Please click often!

"The rhythm of the ride carried them on and on,
and she knew that the horse was as eager as she,
as much in love with the speed and
air and freedom."
