Reviews for Blue Horse Mukwa Equine Retirement and Rescue Center

Rating: 5 stars

I have been familiar with Blue Horse Mukwa for 10 years now. My band has performed annual benefit concerts for her cause. Rabiah Seminole and her volunteers puth their hearts and souls into the preservation and rehabilitation of the equines she accepts to take in. I have seen some horrid cases of equine abuse come to Blue Horse that have been rehabilitated and go on to live healthy and happy lives. Over the last couple of years I have become more involved as a volunteer and recently my wife and I have come to serve on Blue Horse's Board of Directors. With today's economy, costs of taking care of the equines has risen while donations have expectly fallen. It is a very challenging environment for all nonprofit to raise funds.

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

Blue Horse also works with disadvantaged children and adults. I have seen the difference that Blue Horse makes in the lives of others.

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

seek to get more volunteers. I also look for ways to improve the operations of the farm in order to make everyday tasks more efficient and less time consuming.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

To improve its facilities through construction of more shelters and adding watering systems.

What is its top priority in the long run?

To have a facility where more community outreach related to the care and appreciation of Equines is possible. To also raise awareness at the sometimes senseless abuse of equines and provide a haven for equines that are doomed for slaughter.
