“Spirit’s Promise Equine Rescue and Rehabilitation Program rescues horses who have been abused, neglected, or unwanted. We rehabilitate and provide them with a new educational and recuperative purpose — and in return, they repay us with love, sensitivity, and an innate spirituality.”—Marisa Striano.

Spirit’s Promise is a 501©(3) non-profit located at the entrance to eastern Long Island’s bucolic North Fork. We offer a sanctuary to both horses and visitors.  In addition to rescuing horses, we offer human rehabilitation empowerment through our, “Promise of a New Spirit Equine Empowerment Program.”

Our facility also provides a unique destination for family events, weddings, activities, private parties, business functions, team building, and school trips, offering a barn experience, meeting space, and more, while serving as a source of economic support for the rescue.

“When horses come into our lives they change our hearts forever.  Spirit was one of those special horses who put me on a path that changed my life and the life of others, who come to Spirit’s Promise to find peace. It is with great sadness that I must tell everyone that Spirit lost his battle with liver cancer in 2017.  He was my muse, my pride and joy. The man in my life who always loved me, unconditionally. You are in my heart now my beautiful boy. Rest in peace.”–Marisa Striano
