Updated: Aug 13


You can play audio below of our interview with Julia Hyde and Jackie Foley of Canham Farm Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center located in Scotts Valley, California. Just press play!!




Welcome Back Everyone!


I think every little girl I know, including myself, LOVES horses. I was never in a place to actually ride horses but as soon as I could pick up a pencil horses were the first animals I sketched. I fell in love with their eyes and their sleek muscular bodies.


I am Marcia Sivek and this is BeProvided Conservation Radio.


If you cannot tell, today’s show is about horses, specifically horse rescue and rehabilitation with Julia Hyde, founder of Canham Farm Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation and her senior volunteer and outreach coordinator, Jackie Foley. Julia started Canham Farm Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation about 5 years ago when she realized horses needed her help.


In today’s show, we talk about how horses come into their care. Julia and Jackie share stories on how domesticated horses are cared for and their dedication to getting them back to health and finding a new home. Julia also shares how our iconic wild horses in the American West are rounded up by the Bureau of Land Management using helicopters. We learn why these round ups are not good for the horses. Because of these acts, these symbols of freedom are diminishing from our lands.





I learned so much, which makes me want to learn more. If you know someone working to help save our wild horses and would want to share their experience, please contact me through my website at www.beprovided.com.


Enjoy the conversation. I start by asking my guests to introduce themselves and tell us a little bit about how they were inspired to dedicate their time to horse rescue.
