Equestrian, Inc. is one of the best equine non-profits in the Tampa Bay area. They truly care for their horses and put them above everything else. You won't find a better set of volunteers willing to go the extra mile. I would highly recommend donating to this wonderful organization.

I have been a donor for several years as this Organization demonstrates a true devotion to animal rescue. The hard working Volunteers give it all so unselfishly. Equestrian Inc. Is truly a cause I believe in.

Year after year Equestrian Inc. continues to be a wonderful haven for horses. You would be hard pressed to find a place anywhere where the horses are better cared for, more loved, safe, and above all HAPPY! Support Equestrian Inc.! You will be happy with the fact that you did!

I have been with Glenda, and Equestrian Inc. for many years. I've also been to many other facilities, everything from boarding barns, to lesson barns, to show facilities, etc., and I can say that one would be very hard-pressed to find a facility with happier, healthier horses. Year after year we continue to build the facility, build relationships with vendors, and volunteers, we have had many extremely successful, happy adoptions, and I'm completely confident that the best is yet to come, all thanks to the tenacity, and tireless efforts of our president, Glenda, myself, and the rest of the board members. We are always working on projects to make our organization the best that we possibly can. I'm proud to be a part of Equestrian Inc.!

I have been with Equestrian Inc. for many years, and it is a an absolutely WONDERFUL organization with all happy, healthy horses who are meticulously cared for. I personally spend countless hours doing work for the organization both at the facility and remotely, and I do everything that I do because I know the difference right and wrong, being truly charitable, altruistic person, and being in it because one thinks they can just come in from no where and do it better, and to try to present a fake front to all of their friends of being a truly charitable person when in fact they are truly not. We do absolutely E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G that we do for the benefit of the horses. Period. Glenda Smith is like a mother to me, and she is one of the few people that I can honestly say I would go to the ends of the Earth for and wouldn't think twice. Anyone who thinks anything else A) is an awful horse person who has no clue how to truly care for them, B) is GROSSLY misinformed, and C) quite frankly not intelligent... at all. How can I say this? Simple. The proof is on the wall. Equestrian Inc. has been around in the same location under Glenda Smith for almost 30 years. No one else in the bay area stack up to that. Also we continue to be awarded grant after grant. That isn't because Glenda doesn't know what she's doing, and it isn't because we as a core organization don't know what we're doing. I stand by this organization no matter what, and so do a WHOLE lot of other people. We all wear our hearts on our sleeves, and give our horses the best of absolutely everything we possibly can, and there just isn't anything more to say.

Equestrian Inc is a non-profit organization that has tons of heart! The horses blossom at this wonderful farm with lots of land and the opportunity to "be a horse". I learn so much every time I volunteer and get the chance to spend time with these majestic animals.

Equestrian Inc is a wonderful rescue that really puts the horses best interests at heart. The horses there speak for themselves and are all very happy, fat, and happy. The team of EI is phenomenal.

Equestrian is close to my home and I volunteered. A great and compassionate organization of individuals who work tirelessly to help these beautiful animals who have been abused or abandoned. As a person who has rescued 2 dogs, I can tell you it is considerably different when the rescue is significantly bigger than you are. The folks at Equestrian take it in stride and I would hate to think of what would happen to these magnificent animals if they were not there.

Running any sort of animal rescue is not an easy thing. Glenda and her volunteers give their lives to these animals. They are warm and welcoming and are truly appreciative of the help they receive. Caring for malnourished/abused/unwanted critters is labor intensive and $$$$$$$! Kudos to this place!

My family has volunteered at the rescue a few times. We enjoy being able to help out the organization. They do so much good helping out the horses but can always use an extra pair of hands or an extra donation to help them do more for the horses.
