Beth Kokoruda is the Founder of Travellers Rest Farm Sanctuary, and takes care of all our nonprofit pursuits. Beth started riding when she was eight (8), reaching her C3 rating in the Greenwich (CT) Pony Club (USPC), and then went on to be a working student for both Kerry Milliken and Olympian Phyllis Dawson. She obtained her B.A. in English and Political Science from Goucher College, her M.S. in Information Technology and Management and Chief Information Officer certification from the University of Maryland, University College. Beth went into government contracting in the Information Technology sector where she remains almost 25 years later. Beth resides on the farm with her daughter.
The property Travellers Rest Farm Sanctuary resides on was purchased for the sole purpose of giving her beloved horse Traveller a safe and happy place to retire. He passed in 2009, but our purpose remains the same - to help those horses that need a safe landing until their very last day. Once they arrive they remain with us until they pass.
We firmly believe that every horse has a purpose no matter what their limitation, and none of them deserve to left to an uncertain fate. We take in as many senior, blind and permanently disabled horses as we can. None of our horses are ridden. They live in small groups and spend their days eating us out of house and home.
