Review for EQUESTRIAN INC., Tampa, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have volunteered at Equestrian Inc. for over 4 years and they go above and beyond for each and every horse. Every horse is so very important. Equestrian Inc. has been accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance or TCA. They set very high standards for their accreditation process and to be recognized by TCA is a high honor. There are only 42 rescues that have received this accreditation out of hundreds and hundreds of rescues in the United States. The farm is located on a beautiful property with many trees, 3 barns, over 15 acres for the horses to roam about and a large spring fed pond that the horses love to swim in on hot summer days. This is a place where horses come to be safe and loved. Many of the horses are retired racehorses and they go on to wonderful second careers as trail horses, jumpers or event horses.

I was looking for something to keep me busy when I found Equestrian Inc. I had spent my childhood with horses but grew away from them as I got older. Equestrian Inc. filled the need to keep busy and brought me back to my love of horses. I cannot say enough good about Equestrian Inc. We have received horses some of which are broken in spirit and in body, but with love, attention, respect and lots of good food these horses blossom into the wonderful animals that they were meant to be. This organization is truly dedicated to helping those horses that are in need. I recommend it highly.

The role of Equestrian Inc. is to provide a sanctuary for abandoned, abused, unwanted and slaughter bound horses. Recently we acquired a mare who had been starved so badly that each and every bone showed. Our volunteers rallied together to do everything in their power to save this beautiful girl. Unfortunately it was too late and she died. Being with such a dedicated caring group of people trying to save her was truly a life altering experience. Our founder, Glenda Smith, is completely devoted to giving our horses the very best of care and her enthusiasm for her life's vocation is contagious. Each and every volunteer cares deeply for our wonderful horses. Equestrian Inc. is excellent.

Volunteering at Equestrian Inc. was the best move I have ever made. When others speak of "life changing" I can attest to that. It is indeed life changing. Our horses come from all situations. We try to help them adapt to a new life by retraining them according to their particular aptitudes. It's such a beautiful experience to see them blossom into a happy well-adjusted horse. Some, because of age or other problems cannot be retrained so they are welcome to consider Equestrian Inc. their forever home. Our horses are loved and respected for the wonderful animals that they are.
