Reviews for Special Horses

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

TIER-True Innocents Equine Rescue is one of the organizations assisted by Special Horses, Inc. Their fundraisers to assist horse welfare organizations have helped make a difference for the horses of TIER. Their fundraisers are beneficial to our volunteer staff as well because Special Horses does ALL the fundraising work.

The performance of this charity in helping rescues across the nation is commendable. Thank you for being there for so many!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Only change that I can think of would be to gain more support for Special Horses so that they can continue their work.

I run Bluebonnet Equine Humane Society, one of the organizations served by Special Horses, Inc. I've had nothing but good experiences with the organization. They conduct fundraisers to benefit horse welfare organizations, and in my experience the events are well-run and we receive donations/proceeds from them in a timely manner. They've always been great at communicating with us promptly and assisting us whenever needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving donated funds, donating, communication.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I can't think of anything - other than to help them grow bigger so they can do more good.
