Meet the Horses: TeamMember


Holly came to Safe Haven in 2015. She is a registered Paint Horse. She was born in 2000.  She loves all the kids (and adults) who come to Safe Haven.


Mitzi joined our Safe Haven team in 2018.  She is part Arabian, part Fjord, and part Quarter Horse, and is a Buckskin color. She is 100% cute and she knows it! She is a very gentle and obedient horse, and is a great addition to the team.


Phoebe was adopted from a horse rescue in March of 2022. She is a Miniature Horse and she is five years old. Phoebe was severely neglected before she was rescued. She may be the friendliest horse we've ever seen. Phoebe definitely knows how to capture hearts and make new friends!

Shaker is a retired Missouri Fox Trotter show horse. Her show name was Polaris Chocolate Shake. We're not very fancy at Safe Haven, so she is Shaker to us. Shaker is still learning things at Safe Haven but she is usually the first to greet kids at camp. She is a great addition to our family.

Horse Hall of Fame


Our beloved Coco lived a long, full life... filled with special kids and lots of camp! She joined Safe Haven in 2016 and passed away February 2023. She holds a very special place in the hearts of Safe Haven campers (young and old!). A registered Quarter Horse, and half Arabian, Coco loved to roll in the mud every chance she had. Coco loved kids, and they loved her right back!



Moriah was a morgan horse with a golden palomino color. She became a part of Safe Haven in 2014 and went to be with Jesus at an old age in 2017. Moriah was part of Christian ministry all her life. She was well-known for her gentle nature and affection towards people. Moriah was highly trained in natural horsemanship and completed very difficult parade training. She carried the American flag and led parades in Lawrence, Kansas. Moriah will always be missed. She became a part of our hearts. She will never be forgotten.
