I was looking for a place to learn to ride horses when I stumbled upon a list of lesson places! I printed out the list and the only name that was there was Zuma's! I started riding and fell in love with the horses and so that summer I decided to become a working student! I made so many friends and developed a stronger love for horses. Every day i was so excited to work and couldnt wait until I arrived! After 2 years of being at zumas I still love it and never want to leave! It has been a life changing experience that has taught me fun can go along with responsiblity.

I have visited this wonderful sanctuary for people and horses, the love that is shown to both let's us all know that there are people who want this world to be a compassionate and respectful place to live. Thank you Zuma for the work that you do, and for helping the horses who have shown repeatedly that they are worth more than meat for a foreign dinner plate.

Zuma's is not only a representation of my family and my upbringing, but also a constant reminder to myself and to others to give back to those truly in need. To take your good fortune and share it with those less fortunate, both human and animal. No matter what occurs in my life, I know I can go to the ranch and be grounded, loved and supported by everyone there. I could not be more proud of my family for their truly selfless undertaking, and my gratitude to them for what their actions and the outcome that is Zuma's has given me. While I am not a learning child or a rescued animal, I truly feel the humanity and good nature I learn each day at Zuma's makes me a better person, a stronger business person and a more aware human being. No matter what your commitment to Zuma's is, I can guarantee you my family, our horses and these children will change your life.

The Great!

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

Zuma's has taught me to be patient, caring, aware of the emotions of a situation and taught me to apply my attitude at Zuma's in every part of my life. What you give is what you receive. The more of myself, whether it be thought, time, money or labor - that I give - the more I learn and appreciate Zuma's mission and impact on the lives of all who are involved.

Ways to make it better...

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

Find a way to fund it's continued growth and show more people how powerful and all-encompassing the impact of Zuma's truly is.

When I first visited Zuma's I instantly wanted to be involved. I visited during the summer of 2008 and instantly fell in love with a little rescue horse that had been saved by Jodi and Paul from a feed lot just a month before. Since then, I have become a regular contributor to Zuma's and their cause. The balance between both rescuing helpless animals and children that have been abused or neglected is incredibly inspiring. I work in a very busy, fast paced environment and every visit to the ranch is nothing short of inspiring.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The openness and willingness to let everyone get involved and get their hands dirty.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Always incredible

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Continue rescuing horses and children for years to come.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of a thing that would make it any beter.

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

It's incredibly expensive to rescue and care for horses and the property associated with maintaining the property in such a way that will allow for them to continue to support the animals and therapy of the children.

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

I,in many ways, have been saved by this orgnaization and will continue supporting them and spreading their message.

Zuma's is a beautiful place southwest of Denver where you are greeted with open arms, open hearts and a warm smile. A place that is safe for all people and horses to recover,rest and rejuvenate their spirits. Hard work is always needed and a strong desire to make a difference in the lives of these children and animals is appreciated. Volunteers don't always have the time, just the heart.

The Volunteers at Zuma's make such a huge difference in the possibilities around the ranch. Last weekend Paul the main man at Zuma's was away and Jodi his wife was left on her own to care for the 40 horses.... Well that was not the case as Mike Hoagland a dedicated volunteer showed up and boy was he helpful. There was no water, no of the hydrants would come on and it was not due to freezing. Mike stuck around and helped Jodi figure out the mystery, called a well and pump company, Tri-County Pump answered the phone on a Saturday morning and saved the day. 40 horses with no water is a big big problem. While it took hours to get the water situation fixed, more volunteers showed up and helped out; Lance Giddeon arrived simply to show his father the horses and jumped in and began hauling water from the property next door to all of the horses. Amanda Davis fed all of the horses, Stout Street Foundation's "Gary" and volunteer Amanda Zizza cleaned the pastures, and stalls. It was a hearty group of dedicated volunteers that kept things going this day at Zuma's.

The Great!
