I and my 10yr old daughter have been volunteering at Equestrian Inc since June of 2011. My daughter takes riding lessons and has learned how to care for a horse from the ground up, literally. I have furthered my equine knowledge by having hands on instead of just reading about them in books. I have always loved horses and of course, always wanted one of my own. Never having the resources or property for one, this gives me that opportunity. And it's not only one horse but approximately 30-35, at any given time, between their transitioning period. Some are lifelong residents but more are rescued, rehabilitated if needed and re-homed for pleasure or a second career. And all have been saved from going to slaughter which is the easy way out for a lot of owners, whether they are everyday people or professionals, such as owners and trainers of racehorses and show horses. Equestrian Inc provides a safe, stable and nurturing atmosphere for equines and humans alike. You may think a horse rescue saves just the horses but until you've been around them, you realize that the horses rescue you. So my daughter and I now have "our" horse, we sponsor a retired Thoroughbred at Equestrian Inc.
