Horsesisters is my first ranch I ever visited, since then I've seen many others but none quite like Horsesisters. Not only are the horses well cared for but they're lovable beautiful creatures! The staff and volunteers are amazing, kind-hearted people that i'm extremely glad I was able to meet. Horsesisters will always be my favorite ranch and first choice.

I guess I still do not ubderstand why these people want to tell lies and be so hurtful and cruel. What do they get out of this. The only ones hurting in all this is the animals and the very people who do all they can to help them. What is wrong with you people just leave this poor women alone to take care of her horses and help the people she helps. are you that jealous of her that you would rather see these beautiful horses killed or sold at auction to a kill buyer. I mean really my gosh this is suppose to be adults here. I have been there and seen these hosres and seen the care she gives or trys when not being harrased by stupid vindictive people.leave them all alone and go pick on prisoners or pedifiles.I mean really stop it

We are so blessed to be a part of the Horsesisters family. What a great organization it is. We have been volunteers for over two years now. Anyone who truly knows this nonprofit knows what wonderful care and love these horses receive. Our experience volunteering has brought an abundance of joy into our lives. Horsesisters is a wonderful asset to our community and the people who take advantage of what they have to offer. Thank you Claiese and Ron for continuing to care for these magnificant creatures!

Clairese and her volunteers work tirelessly to do all the things we all wish we could do. Help the sick and abandoned animals that no one else will take in. She and her family spend endless amounts of time and money with far too little help. She and her family and volunteers have my undying gratitude and respect. Even though she is under constant scrutiny from the authorities who invest too much time investigating unfounded complaints from anonymous sources, HorseSisters continues to do their best to help the unwanted and abused animals with their own funds and far too little help. God bless Clairese Austin and HorseSisters. This world is a better place because they're in it.

Horsesisters participates in a number of community activities, including mentoring highschool students through their senior projects. I have seen firsthand powerful final projects and witnessed highschool students' perspectives transformed through working with Horsesisters and Clairese. The students learn the value of nonprofits and of volunteering firsthand and Clairese gives them guidance and teaches them accountability.

The Great!

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

the lives of seniors graduating from highschool AND their parents and younger siblings. Everyone gets involved.

Volunteers have declined. Donations have slowed. Horses are losing weight. As of tonight the executive director posted on Facebook that she is shutting the doors. I pray that ALL the horses find new homes and can be safely rehabbed and retrained.

I would never donate a dollar to this organization. There are many more truly WORTHY organizations that deserve my hard earned dollars. Like the previous poster stated, she is always quick to blame others for her faults, and is also very quick to threaten legal action when you question her judgment. Like I said before, there are many legitimate therapeutic facilities in our country, and also so many hardworking rescues that deserve our dollars. PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE DONATING!

Review from Guidestar

First and foremost the last financial listed here is from 2007......only listing "total revenue" and "total expenses". Nothing on where and how much went to who or what. How much does the Executive Director (C. Austin) pay herself? How much does each board member pay themselves? Who are the board members? C. Austin stated on the stand in court (03/29/2012) that it takes $700 a week to feed the 28 horses she currently has on 10 - 14 acres, that equals $36,400 a year (2012), that leaves around $50,000 unexplained (2007). I do realize there are expenses but than why are they not listed? If this organization truly had the horses best interests as a priority, the Horse sister Organization would not be having these issues. C. Austin is like a child, always pointing the finger at someone else.....never accepting responsibility for her lack (abuse) of management, with horses and financials. She talks the talk, but the people she refers too never come to defend her........she does not walk the walk. I have been to this facility and I have heard horror stories from many different people. In my opinion, and yes Clairese, I am entitled to have an opinion, you are truly a disgusting human being taking advantage of peoples good hearts and finances. People, wake up, get this woman away from any kind of animal.

I just recently became a volunteer at HorseSisters. I knew the first time I visited the ranch that I wanted to be a part of this organization. What a wonderful and caring group of people. The horses are beautiful and they are loved and well cared for. As many others have also stated, I feel very peaceful when I visit. People helping horses and horses helping people…I can’t think of more worthwhile cause.

The Great!

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

Watching adults and children caring for the horses. I learn something new each time I visit.

I would not change a thing.

HorseSisters is a part of my heart. I don't donate to just anyone, but I do donate to HorseSIsters on a monthly basis and volunteer when I am able. Not just anyone can care for horses especially draft horses, but HorseSisters not only cares, but gives these wonderful animals the respect and love that they deserve. Many horses need to have a "job" to feel completed and HorseSIsters works not only to love the animals, care for them, but also to make them a part of a larger family or Herd. As a disabled woman, I have been welcomed into the HorseSisters "herd" and have been given a chance to love and be loved by these magnificent anmals and those who care for them.

The Great!

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

sitting around a camp fire with HS people seeing a small part of the HorseSIsters herd gallop by with their manes flowing in the moonlight. I have seen veterans laid to rest with the help of HorseSisters Caisson. I have seen the joy of adults and children feeding a carrot or an apple to their favorite HorseSisters horse. I have shared a drink of water with my favorite member of the herd who has since gone to his rest and my life has been enriched by knowing him. I could go on and on.....

Ways to make it better...

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

more m oney, more people, HS closer to me so I oculd be there more!!
