Review for Spring Creek Horse Rescue, Durango, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Spring Creek Horse Rescue is an amazing place. I have volunteered now for six years, and I have seen ill, injured, old, young, abused and neglected horses enter Spring Creek Horse Rescue, wondering the fate of these soulful creatures. Through the patient, knowledgeable care of Diane, the director, I have seen these sorrowful horses regain their will to live, their unbelievable ability to forgive and trust humans again. In six years, I have seen at least 40 horses adopted to people who love them; a family who adores cute Moxey, a middle age woman who loves her beautiful Vegas, who had serious injuries; a veteran with PTS who adopted T-Rex, big and black, now companions on the trail and in the barn. There are many happy ending stories like this, all because Spring Creek Horse Rescue is there for horses and people.

I am a 4th year volunteer at Spring Creek Horse Rescue. A motto that describes the Rescue is "Horses First". I have seen horses come to the Rescue skin and bones, with injuries, with shyness from mistreatment, and I have seen Diane work miracles with them to see well-fed, injury free and trusting of humans. I love working at the Rescue to see and touch these beautiful, soulful animals and it is always an exciting day when one is adopted into a new, caring home. Becca

I am on year 3 as a volunteer for Spring Creek Horse Rescue in Colorado.
The horses here receive the care needed to rehabilate, whether it is an underweight problem from neglect, or trust issues from improper handling, or injuries. I have seen over 40 horses adopted since volunteering and how rewarding it is to see a beautiful and spiritual horse go to a caring home. The Rescue also works with the community by providing instruction on care and also as a place for people with community service hours to work and learn. The director, Diane, I am in awe of; she loves these unfortunate animals and cares from them until trust is again established. Especially kudos to her. The Rescue is always in need of donations for feed and medicine for our charges.

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

Many, many horses have been adopted out to new caring homes and this is so, so rewarding for the rescue.

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

My wish for Spring Creek Rescue is to have a place of its own to call home. It is now on a rental location and the future is uncertain. That is one big wish, so my lessor wish is to have funding for the care of the horses.

Role:  Volunteer & I muck, groom, talk to the horses every week. This rescue is spotless!.
