Spring Creek Horse Rescue
October 17, 2013

Spring Creek Horse Rescue has provided care for countless animals since 1976, almost 40 years. All horses are treated as individuals with specific care and feeding for each. Her wealth of knowledge has brought seemingly incurable animals back from the brink. Diane provides everything she can for the horses, going without many things for herself. She does not take a salary although she is allowed one, believing instead that the horses come first. I have seen amazing changes in many of the horses firsthand, and I learn something every time I am there. I have volunteered for over a year and in that time have seen many instances of horses learning to trust for the first time. Diane truly loves every horse there and wants the best for all of them.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would move them to a larger property so they could become self sustaining, through the possibility of boarding other horses, storing hay, providing training and any other means of having an income.

Spring Creek Horse Rescue
October 22, 2012

Spring Creek Horse Rescue cares deeply for each animal that becomes a resident, whether it is long term or short term. Each horse is treated as an individual, with special attention to their needs. Their feed is adjusted to their age, health issues and neglect caused by previous owners. At Spring Creek, they are loved simply because they exist, even though they may not have been treated well enough in the past to return that love. Every pen is cleaned every day, which to me shows acknowledgement of the horse's dignity. I personally have seen horses go from virtual walking skeletons to healthy good looking animals. The past is evident in their eyes and their actions, and the slow gain of trust between Spring Creek and the individual horses is a wonderful thing to see. It happens because they know they are being cared for.
