History of Ever After Mustang Rescue
Bush Brook Farm was built in 1980 on 63 acres of land, to be home to a 6-year-old mustang. It was a long time dream of Mona Jerome and made possible by her devoted husband Brad. It was just the beginning of something bigger and of greater importance.
Mona followed her passion for wild horses and volunteered many hours assisting contractors for the Bureau of Land Management at New England Satellite Adoptions, participated in yearly wild horse workshops offered by Least Resistance Training Concepts throughout the west, and learning about the wild horse from those with many years of experience. In addition she has attended and participated in clinics with nationally known trainers.
In 2002, with the encouragement and help of Brad, Mona founded Ever After Mustang Rescue, Training and Education Center. Since that time it has been a refuge for unwanted, neglected and abused mustangs. With nearly 30 years of experience Mona has facilitated the healing of mind and body, restoring the horse to the proud, intelligent creature he is.
Education continues by working with each horse, and continuing to attend workshops and training clinics.
The rescue places an average of 2-3 horses a year to approved homes. The success of these placements can be viewed on the Alumni page.
The Rescue Center is also host to several yearly clinics, workshops and training programs for horse owners and any interested parties. See our Events page for more information.
Ever After Mustang Rescue is a nonprofit organization that rescues and rehabilitates previously adopted mustangs and either transitions them to new homes and useful lives, or offers life-time care to unadoptable horses.
We offer educational programs and mentoring to prospective adopters and other interested persons in the care, handling, and training of the wild horse. Events Page
We promote interest and awareness in America’s Wild Horse through presentations to schools, organizations and other groups.
Our goals are to protect and preserve the health and well being of the American Mustang after adoption.
To provide assistance to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and to adopters through all means available (mentoring, clinics, workshops, etc.).
To educate the public on the value and merits of the breed which in turn will increase the success of future adoptions.
And to reach out to young people “at risk” by creating hands-on opportunities to work with gentled mustangs.
