From what I have seen with the posts on Facebook I can tell that this organization is a very loving, carrying and would go out of it's way to save and protect these loving horses and I am so happy and blessed to be invited and part of this group. I truly love all animals and I am happy that there is an organization that feels the exact same way.

Your $$$ will be well spent when donating to Special Horses, they allocate funds to horse rescues who have many success stories. Their spokes horse works tirelessly promoting online auctions (I suspect he has human help at times) I have both won and donated auction items, it was a very easy process. I was very happy with the jewlry I had the winning bid on. I highly recommend checking their auctions, some great stuff shows up and the more you buy the more horses you help! Keep up the good work Special Horses.

This rescue is so awesome. They go out of their way to help several other rescues. They have auctions for art, jewelry, and horse related items. Definitely worth 5 stars in my opinion.

Honest, dedicated and supportive of horses rescues! I have donated numerous art works to help with their mission to supply funds to needy horse rescue groups. I trust them completely to make certain the monies go to the group and not a scam.

Special Horses always goes above and beyond for the equine charities they support. They hold fundraisers, auctions, and advocate for legislation to improve the lives of all horses in our country. They have supported our charity for many years and are tireless in their support of equine in need.

I have a dear friend that runs a 501(c)(3) horse rescue in Pennsylvania, and Special Horses nonprofit has tirelessly raised funds to help her save horses. They hold online fundraisers and auctions on social media, and the money they've raised helps pay for the rescued horse's care, veterinary expenses, dental, and farrier. This is an excellent nonprofit!

I own a rescued OTTB and I have an affinity to help horses - especially those who have come from circumstances similar to my mare. I appreciate Special Horses as they serve multiple charitable organizations for horses in need/at risk. This makes it easier for the donor to help while knowing that the money is going where it is most needed. I also appreciate the auction format that Special Horses so successfully uses as it makes it possible for me to donate an item of value when I may not be able to make a similar monetary contribution. I have also won items from the auction(s) and I have always been pleased with my purchase and the fact that I helped fund the needs of another equine. Special Horses has social media presence, and uses it to bring awareness to all the issues that horses at risk may have, including emergency situations, where funds may need to be raised quickly. As a seller on eBay, I am able to donate a percentage of the cost of items that I sell - to Special Horses - I like having this option as a donor, too! If I could afford to adopt a second rescue horse, I would be more likely to consider the equines of the organizations that Special Horses assists.

The non-profit organizations - that Special Horses, LLC, embraces, promotes and financially supports - are dear to my heart. The experience has always been positive and FUN; I know the money goes where its supposed to go. I know that it helps. And, in my travels, I seek out items that I feel may be attractive as donations for future auctions. It is my way of giving back to the horses that have given us so much and now are in need. I do it for my mare (a rescued thoroughbred), and all her friends who are not so fortunate and who may be at risk. It's a noble cause.
