Reviews for Epona Horse Rescue Inc

Rating: 5 stars  

Epona is a home away from home for me while I'm attending college! It never ceases to brighten my day to volunteer out there. The transformation that you see in the horses that come into the rescue is remarkable from the first day when they are emaciated or terrified of people to healthy, loving horses. Epona truly is a haven for both horses and people.

Coming to Lincoln from a rural area to attend college was exciting, but I missed being able to be outside or in the barn, but most importantly, I missed horses. Epona has become my favorite pastime as I'm able to work with horses that deserve a second chance at a good life. Lin and Larry are magnificent people who have the biggest hearts when it comes to helping these horses.

I am so so so grateful to Lin and Epona Horse Rescue. I volunteered as a college student and this rescue helped to open my eyes to all of the wonderful horses in the world that just needed a little help tI get back on their feet. I watched Lin rehab horses with a variety of behavioral problems time and time again. She showed me that all they need is a little love, patience, and understanding to live up to their full potential. I watched horses come in completely terrified of humans and leave a few weeks later to their forever homes calm and happy to finally be loved. I've seen horses come in looking like walking skeletons and Epona horse rescue nursed them back to health. The world can be an ugly place but places like Epona Horse Rescue provide a light and comfort for some of the suffering animals out there. Thank you thank you thank you Epona for all that you do.

I chose this non-profit organization to donate to after reading and seeing all they do for horses here in Nebraska. To give so much of your life to the betterment of these animals with very little support stands out as a miracle. My wish is that everyone could take just 5 minutes to see all they do and I know they would feel the same way I do and want to help Epona in anyway they can.
Thank you Epona from all the horses you have saved.

It is remarkable to watch the transformation of these rescued horses. Plus it is so rewarding to see the wonderful adoption stories. The love they give to these horses is remarkable not to mention the lengths they go to for the special vet care and surgeries that are done. You ROCK EPONA!!!!!

I had an opportunity to visit this rescue and was totally impressed with all they do for horses! I was captivated by the horses I met and the caring staff and volunteers. I enjoy reading about their new rescues and the adoption successes. I hope to volunteer there someday after retirement.

Epona is so loving, so smart, and so forward looking. They squeeze the most opportunity for their rescues out of every communication and every dollar. They are a great regional asset, and great educators to boot. Thank God for Epona Horse Rescue. I wish we had them in every region of the USA.

Epona is very close to us, we've been there, we've seen the entire facility, and even helped with evening feeding. This is a top notch facility, the animals are first and foremost and very well cared for. We follow the happenings there, including what happens when the vet or farrier has visited. The Owner (Lin Beaune) is so compassionate when it concerns any animal it is heartwarming. To see her is amazing. Epona started out as a dream and became a reality, a way of life. They are highly recommended in our area, and often take in animals from long distances, just to keep them safe. Epona has such a positive impact on anyone that has been involved in any way, because you can see the love. They can tell you the story of most every animal in their charge, how they came to live at Epona, and their personalities. Every horse on the property becomes a loved personality from the moment it is deemed they will become part of Epona, often before. I highly recommend Epona to anyone and everyone, looking for a sanctuary, or looking to adopt a rescue. The horses that are there know what being loved really means
