Help Us Keep The Nokota® Momentum Going!


Dear Supporter of the Nokota Horse Conservancy®           

We would very much like to thank you for your interest and support of the Nokota® horses as we end a very successful year, but there is still more work to do.  We sincerely hope you will consider a donation during this season of giving.  We know you have many charities to support and we appreciate your consideration.  It’s all about the WHY and the HOW...

Here is WHY we ask for your critical support...

1.The Nokota® breed is rare and in jeopardy of disappearing! We have the largest herd of full foundation Nokotas® in the world. With less than 1000 full and part blood Nokotas® worldwide, our 66 NHC horses are vital to supporting the development of the Nokota® breed.

2. Nokotas® are increasingly recognized for their remarkable characteristics.  They are different from other breeds, noted for their ability to think their way through challenges and for their deep desire to connect with their humans.  As more Nokota® horses are finding their human partners and engaging in a diversity of riding disciplines, their versatility and successes in many arenas speaks volumes.

3. It’s not just about genetics.  Our horses live in a herd environment that is as close to natural as a managed herd can get.  Our babies are born into the herd and  raised in the complex social structure that is created by having a large group of mares from the very young to the very old living together.  Our stallions are allowed to live together and interact naturally.  They play, they fight for dominance, and they form social batchelor bands. Every year a handful of stallions are selected in the spring to diversify the bloodlines of the Nokota® breed by running with their selected mare bands through the fall. Other stallions are offered for sale, gelded and engaged in training to find their human partners and become ambassadors for the Nokota® breed.

Our efforts to ensure survival of this breed are not without cost!                                                
We need you to join our efforts with your financial support!
Here is HOW … you can help us continue to build toward a sustainable future for the Nokota® horses with any level of donation…
Support a 2017 Nokota® through this winter: 
$360 will help to ensure winter pasture expense and herd management costs for one of the Nokota® horses in the Conservancy’s preservation breeding herd through 4 months of the North Dakota winter.
$90 will cover those costs for one horse for one month.
$60 will cover average monthly expenses per horse year-round for pasture and hay alone...consider becoming a sustaining donor at this monthly level of support!
or...Choose an annual Nokota Horse Conservancy® Membership!
But ANY support, at ANY level of funding, that you can contribute is GREATLY appreciated!
You love the breed, you know their incredible story…
won’t you help us ensure a future for the Nokota® horse?
