Our Board
Deborah Baker

President & Founder


After living abroad in the Far East for six and a half years, I settled in China Grove, NC and became involved with a local rescue.  This reawakened a passion for horses and rescue.  I had rescued and rehabilitated my first horse in the early 80s long before starved horses were known as rescues. 


Over the next nine years, I spent every free minute caring for and learning about debilitated horses.  While doing rescue, I noticed there was a serious gap in equine education as it pertained to the overall health and care of horses, so I began the Horse Sensei, a series of equine health and well-being classes and clinics for the general public. 


I always planned to return to my rescue roots but felt the universe calling much sooner than I had expected.  So I gathered together a group of passionate rescuers that would be committed for the long haul and formed Midnight's Promise. 


I currently have 2 rescues of my own, our organization's namesake and inspiration, Midnight Sun and a funny Quarter-Arab cross mare named Miakoda that keeps me laughing with her goofy antics.
