We have known Rabiah and Blue Horse Mukwa for over twelve years. Throughout that time, Rabiah has worked tirelessly to provide homes for animals discarded by others, or for whom no other safe haven was available. Blue Horse has been Verified by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries and this is a well-deserved credential. Here, animals receive meticulous care from conscientious volunteers. They are safely housed and handled, receive needed veterinary care and live the remainder of their lives at the Sanctuary. Rabiah is not only the rescuer of the horses in her care, she is also quick to offer assistance to neighboring rescues, serving as an additional resource to others who are trying to help save them. She is a credit to this community and we are happy to give this credit where it is due.

We know Rabiah since over 10 years and admire her commitment and passion to bring healing to animals and through them to people as well. She never turns away from even the most challenging case of abuse and works tirelessly to make sure the animals are safe for the rest of their lives. Blue horse mukwa is always worth the visit, to feel what a difference a few people can make in the lives of so many as rabiah's enthusiasm and drive to continue and grow affects visitors and people lending a helping hand alike. Well, you don't just visit, you'll end up falling in love with the resident and the mission and before you know it, you'll be out on the field passing out hay ….:)

While restoring an old tobacco farm, I found Blue Horse while searching for an ethical source of fertilizer. I probably annoyed Rabiah with a dozen animal care questions before getting manure, but it is important to know the animals are well loved and well fed. From my first visit, I've been impressed with the level of care each animal gets daily. The owner and volunteers provide fine quality of life at Blue Horse Mukwa Equine Retirement and Rescue Center.

I was asked by a fellow animal advocate if I knew of Blue Horse because she going to donate money for a horribly abused pit bull named Hogan had taken in that needed much medical assistance and prayers. I did some research and found they were an amazing organization that walked the talk and would go above and beyond to help an animal, any animal to the end of this earth. Rabiah Seminole's post telling of the horrible shape that Hogan was in and her heartfelt words in the beginning of his journey were touching and brought tears to my eyes. Team Hogan was formed and I followed each day the postings and updates of this incredible little warriors strength to survive and shared it on our Facebook page. I am so happy I was asked for that initial reference because I learned of an amazing Rescue organization and its Founder Rabiah and her dedication to all living creatures.

My boyfriend and I lived in Boydton, VA for 10 months. During that time we both were volunteers at Blue Horse Mukwa Equine Retirement and Rescue Center. Rabiah is such a caring and generous person to open up her heart and home for these animals. She cares for each horse, dog and cat as individuals and each one has a story. She has dedicated her life unconditionally to these animals and it truly takes a special person to do that. The staff is not to be left out - without them I cannot imagine how Rabiah would do it all. This is a cause close to my heart and I am happy that these animals have such a wonderful place to go on their retirement and rescue. They are all loved and cared for beyond measure. I am proud to know Rabiah and her staff and call them my friends!

This organization has always jumped in to help whenever they could. They take excellent care of the horses & dogs/kitties, etc. in their care. The founder is a kind caring soul, too.
