Please read and join in on this amazing organization !!!!!

I went to this rescue with my daughter and encountered a gentleman that was very rude to me and my daughter. I was raised around horses and had an individual there ask me a question about a problem that a horse that she was sponsoring was having. When I tried to help her with her problem, me and my daughter was asked to leave the property. The people that was there and witnessed the aggression that this gentleman showed seemed to be shocked as I was. All I did was try to help this woman with her problem as I have extensive experience with horse ailments and you would think that they would welcome any help that they could get from someone if they are really about the animals as I am. Seems to me that it is more about the money at this so called rescue.

Have a more friendly staff. Really it was only one staff member but I believe he is a senior staff member. I would also welcome any help and knowledge that was offered me and I definitely would not become aggressive towards anyone in front of a child. As an adult you should know that.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S. is a great place for anyone who likes being outside, hard work and horses. The members and volunteers work tirelessly every day to ensure the horses are healthy and well cared for. The people always put the horses needs before their own needs or wants. Their cause is admirable and the people are extremely caring and generous. It truly is one of the best rescues I have ever seen. In fact, most barns I see are not as kept up as F.R.I.E.N.D.S. nor do their horses look as good.

An awesome place for people who want to "test the waters" with their families getting involved with horses without spending a small fortune to "try it out". They offer an affordable program that can accomidate both people who want a horse they don't have to share with anyone and also a program sharing a horse for those who can't be there every day. They have a unique set up where all the feeding, stall cleaning and "work" can be done by volunteers or if you want the complete "hands on experience" you can do it yourself. The price can not be beat by any barn locally. There is no "term lease" involved. The staff is helpful and so are the members as they all share the same attitude. "Everyone was a beginner at some point". If you have an interest in horses, you are welcome to just volunteer as well.

The Great!

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

I get enourmous satisfaction watching the horses they rescue blossom as they gain back the weight and the strength they lost at the hands of someone else.

Try to find them a professional fundraiser to help them raise the funds they so desperately need.

This is a place like none other. The research done here in the equine field and the rescue efforts done here are providing a safe haven for horses and animals that would have to be euthanized if not for the owners and volunteers that put in their valuable time all for the love of these animals.

We visited this rescue 2 years ago while we were on vacation. They were wonderful. Welcomed us with open arms and we dug right in and helped! IT was raining that day and we helped with clean up and just had a great time. This rescue goes above and beyond for these horses that no one else wants!!! We have become great friends with the owner of the rescue and cannot wait to go back this summer to see them again!!! She has a heart of gold!!!

Amazing horse ranch for any out door or animal lover. After arriving at the ranch from unthinkable conditions, these horses are respected and allowed to live a stress free life. They deserve at least that. Families and individuals can sponsor a horse which is just like owing your own horse with out the huge expense. Run by an all volunteer staff, the ranch is always in need of volunteers willing to work hard while enjoying what they do. Visit the wesite: www.eiahorses.org for all information needed for volunteering and sponsoring.

FRIENDS is one of the only true horse rescues I have seen. Horses have been rehabilitaated from abuse and extreame neglect. They take horses that anywhere else would be put down, due to medical conditions, age or prior owner's inability to make money using the horse. All of the horses at this ranch are worthy of a happy "horse" life and did not deserve their prior treatment. If you are reading this please make an effort to donate to help continue to save the horses.

A wonderful place for any animal lover to volunteer. A great way to own a horse with out the major expense. Anyone with desire can volunteer or sponsor a horse, no experience necessary. This is a wonderful organization saving some beautiful, soulful animals in need.
