I had been to a fund raiser at this rescue. I spoke with the owner on previous occassions. She keeps horses for the remainder of thier lives. She takes good care of the horses. I would not agree with 'sneeky' as the name indicates the type of person writing this bad review. I had an exboarder tell me this story, without naming this facility. This person is not to be trusted , sneeky is correct.

My family volunteered out there. We used to clean several stalls each time we were there until the owner made us feel quite unwelcome. Seemed our work was never quite enough no matter how many stalls were cleaned. All the boarders moved elsewhere for the same fact as well as the older staff. They have a bunch of kids (around 11 years old) running the place as the owners spend most of their time at their house (which is on the property). My daughter took lessons as well, since we've moved everybody has told us she was taught incorrectly how to saddle her horse and ride.

Have better instructors, explain to the owners how an actual "resuce" works. She do not find new homes, just has people "sponser" the horses. Let people out there at better times. She closes the gates at 5:00 year round (this means you get to ride/clean in the 100 plus temps rather than going out in the evenings). The owner should actually do half the things she claims she does.
