Take It Away Day is back!

Come to 279 River Road in Windham on Saturday, June 19th, from 10AM – 2PM to find saddles, saddle pads, bridles, boots, blankets, and so much more. You’ll find great tack and barn supplies, plus your donation will go right to the rescued horses! Take It Away Day will be held in the indoor arena rain or shine. Folks who are not fully vaccinated are asked to wear a mask.

MSSPA’s popular Picnic with Ponies program is accepting reservations for its second season, and there are spots available now! Reservations are required, and the shelter is not open to visitors outside of this program.  Everyone at MSSPA is excited to see you, so please book your spot today.
