Special Horses has helped a lot of non-profit horse rescue groups in many ways. SH does fundraising to help these groups by hosting on-line auctions and other "virtual" events on their website. Plus SH has a good presence on social media to promote the cause of horse rescue, adoption and horse welfare and brings much needed attention to the organizations they help.

Special Horses does great work raising money for horse charities. The spokeshorse, Ted Peeplover (you can find him on facebook) along with his human are busy collecting a variety of donated items to put in their online auctions, they always come up with interesting things you didn't know you needed until you see them! They have some particularly nice art work at times. I have bought several pieces of jewelry from them myself which arrived promptly and were just as they were pictured. I was so impressed with their efforts to help horses in need I donated an item to one their auctions myself and will do so again. Keep up the good work Special Horses, goodness knows there are 1000's of horses in need of rescue and help to find a new home in this country.

Special Horses works tirelessly to help other equine non profits across the country. that have horses in their care. Their fundraisers are always a success and they don't just do a few events a year... they do many every year. Special Horses has helped our charity with emergency veterinary expenses, and has reached out to us, offering assistance when they saw us take in a neglected horse or have a special needs situation arise with one of our horses. This is a wonderful organization, well run and transparent. We can never thank them enough for their help.

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.

Special Horses and it's founder, Wendi Neckameyer are extremely dedicated to saving horses. When Special Horses aren't fundraising, they are networking the horses who are in need of homes, donations, and gathering signatures for petitions to change the laws regarding horse welfare. This foundation can always be counted on for the latest horse news and provides addresses for each state's representative. This is a fantastic foundation for horses, and follows all the rules pertaining to being a 501c3. Special Horses, in my opinion, is one of the most conscientiously run foundations I have been involved with.

Special Horses does great work. I can donate to them and be assured that they have verified that the various organizations they support are legitimate 501-c-3 operations, and that my donations are not wasted on providing an income for the fund-raisers rather than going to the organizations and equines in need.

I donate and participate in the Special Horses fundraisers. They do great work raising money for equine rescues, retirement, rehab and rehoming at-risk equine. I have never had a problem with any of my donations and all dealings have always confirmed me of their commitment to the equine and their honesty in dealing with all issues especially their fundraisers. I will continue to be one of their donors as I can.
