I am currently adopting a filly and also fostering a filly from Epona Horse Rescue in Crete NE. They do an awesome job for unwanted, abused and neglected horses. They facility is very clean and the horses are well feed and taken care of. They work tirelessly to find homes for these horses. They work in conjunction with Lusco Farms in Iowa, a donkey rescue, that also does amazing work. It would not be possible without the amazing donations they receive and have just finished a beautiful barn to house mothers and their new foals, injured and other horses needing special attention. Please check with them first if you are in the market for a horse (or 2) that need a loving home!

I came to the rescue as a volunteer, originally. After a rough week of learning that my beloved 26 year old OTTB needed to be retired, I spent the day with Lin, the director, and fellow volunteers meeting new horses. And after only a week, I became a client of Lin's. She agreed to help me retire my horse, and I fostered a lovely 13 year old Oldenburg mare named Kasbah. Lin was upfront, honest, and direct with dealing with the process of the horse swap and exchange. Red, along with every other horse out there, is fat, healthy, and well looked after. Kasbah came home and I knew exactly what I was dealing with - Lin's accurate portrayal of the horse made it very easy to start working with her.

A lot of what is online about Lin and the Epona Horse Rescue is all false. Lin does NOT run a breeding facility, Lin does NOT deal with slaughter houses, Lin does NOT hoard horses. She has a fantastic turn-over rate with horses staying in their forever homes. As a volunteer, friend, and adopter from the Epona Horse Rescue, I would absolutely recommend it to anyone!

I would help get better funding for the good work Lin does. I would give her more land and more resources available to help adopt out horses. If you are a skilled, knowledgeable and kind horseperson in Nebraska, contact Lin to start volunteering! Great volunteers are the backbone to a great organization!

Epona Horse Rescue in Crete , Nebraska goes above and beyond the expectations I had. Lin and Larry are professional and competent . They welcomed questions regarding the organzation and answered them all . Epona is a work in progress with a new barn and first aid facilities being built. A training program being developed and always the best interst of each horse a parmount concern. I wasvery impressed by the care and cleanliness of the facility. Epona should be one of the top rated rescues in the country in my book. The depth of caring and dedication is wonderful. I have my lifetime best friend thanks to Epona.

This "rescue" in my opinion is a sham. She is NOT a rescue but rather a hoarder. Animals mysteriously die, disappear, etc. She is even listed in the local yellow pages as a horse dealer. Horse dealers are brokers who broker horses mainly for slaughter to Canada and Mexico. Please do not donate to this person.

The Great!

She closed down

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Getting them shut down for good

One thing I'd also say is that...

She's not a rescue, she's a hoarder
