Chapter 99E of the NC statues
Located in Thurmond North Carolina, Elliemae and friends is a
rescue farm. We take in critters of many species.
Our focus now is to rescue, rehabilitate and help find homes for the
many untrained, unwanted, miniature horses and ponies that end up in
auctions or left neglected in fields.
All Elliemae ponies are healthy, sound, and enjoy the company of
children of all ages!

Our ponies are very well trained and safe to ride. However.. these are
live animals. The potential for one of our ponies to become spooked
or nervous is always a possibility.  We ask that an adult be present to
help keep the children calm around the ponies. Loud screams, ball
playing, motorized toys.. all have the potential to make a pony
nervous.
