Twenty-four years ago, Bev Dee encountered a bay Thoroughbred named Brite Decision. He was sick, lame, and headed for euthanasia when she discovered and fell in love with him, not knowing how the sweet-natured fellow would change her life – and she did his. The stakes-placed gelding became the inspiration for Dee’s Bright Futures Farm in northwest Pennsylvania, where he will always be the heart and soul of an enterprise that has been devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding homes for horses in need. Dee founded Bright Futures Farm in 2000 and has since rescued dozens of horses from undesirable situations. Bright Futures Farm is one of the few facilities that will accept aged stallions at its sanctuary. The organization is dependent upon tax-deductible donations and sponsorships to cover the costs of properly caring for these horses that had nowhere else to go and are now guaranteed to have one last home for the rest of their lives. “We reschooled for high-end disciplines and for everyday riders,” Dee said. Graduates were placed in pre-screened homes matching their temperaments and ability.  “We will always take back any horse at any time for any reason – no questions asked.” Bright Futures microchips all of its horses and monitors every horse that has gone through its adoption program – a process that requires periodic updates from the adopters. The permanent residents of the sanctuary – the horses that were unadoptable due to age or a disability – are carefully monitored. Their individual needs include special meals, chiropractic care, and PEMF treatments. Adjustments are made for each horse as needed.
