I went to buy this old horse trailer and had to go out in the middle of nowhere! When I got there they asked me if I wanted to take this horse too because the other horses were picking on him. I took this little, malnourished, tri colored Hackney named RJ. Come to find out he was a "cribber" and had already had over 3 homes in his apx 2 years of life. I already rescued a beautiful Florida Cracker Broodmare named, "KIT" and I really wanted to put them together but poor KIT had already been through enough breeding babies for people who would just take them away so I didn't want to get her "preggers" again. Well, HOPE EQUINE TO THE RESCUE! They were just fantastic first of all for accepting "RJ" and for the very unique way they "gelded" him. The veterinarian, well, I just can't say enough about him. He was very friendly, funny and caring. His technique left my RJ with hardly a drop of blood loss, no infection whatsoever and RJ was up and walking no problem...the next day. I read their rescue stories every day and am touched to tears at the work they do.

When I heard about a particularly horrific case of horse abuse this October 2012, the mare was in a lot of trouble, I started to follow her progress after her rescue. She was taken in by Hope Equine Rescue (1200 Dixie Dr, Auburndale, Florida 33823) and I gladly donated funds toward her recovery. She could not have been taken to a better farm. She found herself starting to get her 5 year old life back. There were 2-3 times when they thought her injuries would take her to the Rainbow Bridge. She fought. Hope Equine fought. Their wonderful Vet fought. You can't buy this kind of compassion and dedication. This group organizes free gelding clinics, low cost equine vaccinations, equine health seminars ,demonstrations and community outreach activities not to mention the constant care all of their current herd of rescued horses. They deserve all of the recognition and support there is out there.

These people go out of their way to help animals . If they hear of a animal in need they do not hesitate, they jump in and do whatever needs to be done. If there were more rescues like Hope then we would all know that the abandoned and sick animals were in good hands.

Hope Equine goes above and beyond for each and every horse they take in. Where others see a lost cause, the team at Hope sees a lost soul in need of care and commitment. The seminars are wonderful and gave every horse owner the chance to be brought up to date on the latest in equine health. The Poker rides, the Low Cost gelding clinic, the endless support of those in need, etc. Hope Equine is a top rescue because of the commitment to the horses that each and everyone apart of the rescue demostrates.

I have seen them help Horses in need that I would have just most likely put down. I have been doing rescue for over 30 years. They are one of the best in Florida with helping horses. Like the pony Star, I would have never done everything they have done to save that pony even though she will never be a riding pony they have done everything to make her safe and comfortable and she has come much further than I ever thought she would!

Recently I took in a mare that was abused and neglected he was very thin and her hooves were very bad. I did everything I could think of to help her. I called everywhere trying to find help for her. I finaly called the local feed stores and everyone of them gave me Hope equines name. It was a blessing. They came out and they were very honest in their opinions on her condition. A few days later they came out to pick her up to go to the vets for xrays. She has not been handled or treated nicely for years. It took several hours to load her. They never lost their patients or pushed her to hard. The xrays were not good but they did not give up. This horse has a lot of fight in her and she's not going to give up and they won't give up on her. They have keep me informed on honey and her progress. They are awesome. I know if not for Hope she would never made it.
