Our goal with www.specialhorses.org is to provide fundraising opportunities, marketing assistance, educational opportunities, and community outreach for registered 501(c)3 not-for-profit groups involved with equine rescue, rehabilitation, retirement, therapeutic riding and hippotherapy.


The Special Horses, Inc. Emergency Fund is a program developed to to help non-profit equine rescues be better prepared when faced with natural disasters or in cases of extreme need.  Our goal is to have one equine sling available in each state along with full kits of emergency supplies that will be stored with participating Veterinarians.  Through our network, when a group is in need, they can contact us or the veterinarian in their state and borrow the sling or an emergency kit at no charge to them.

Special Horses is dedicated to raising funds to help horse rescues help horses in need. Horses who have been starved, abused, abandoned.
They also do a tremendous job of helping to raise awareness about the issues of horse abuse and slaughter.
A wonderful organization that does so much good!

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!

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.
