Review for THE FLORIDA RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR EQUINE NURTURING DEVEL & SAF, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started with F.R.I.E.N.D.S from the start as a teen. I am now 45 yrs old. Some of my best memories are with my first horse Gorgeous George at the ranch. This is a organization like no other. It is saving horses who would otherwise not have had a chance. I have known Debbie Beye-Barwick over thirty years. Her main mission has always been and will always be the horses.
I now live on a farm in Central Florida and spread F.R.I.E.N.D.S mission to every vet and horse person I come in contact with. I want the horse community to know a EIA positive horse has this wonderful option. Many do not have the land mass to quarantine their horse and think euthanasia is the only option. The reputation of this outstanding organization is nationwide and respected by many horse people. The members and volunteers are the backbone of this organization.
Many of the horses at the ranch live well into their thirties and pass of old age. It also gives people a affordable opportunity of sponsoring and loving a horse. You can be assured with this organization all donations go straight to the horses.
Can you tell I love F.R.I.E.N.D.S.?

Rating: 5 stars  

FRIENDS is an incredible non profit. My first horse was a EIA positive horse that I had through Friends, I had him until he passed away and was involved for many years. EIA horses would have few options without FRIENDS and many would be put down.
I live in central Florida now and still own horses I will never forget my roots. FRIENDS is a horse lovers dream and an opportunity to have their own horse.
