I adopted a wonderful pony from AAE a few years ago. They do a lot of community outreach and education as well as programs for young children. I was impressed with the amount of work they do with the horses. The pens and pastures were clean and in good shape. You could tell the horses were well taken care of and loved the staff and volunteers. They are also great about posting updates on adoptions and rescue efforts. Open, honest people who truly have the animals best interest in mind.

AAE is a wonderful organization that has found homes for dozens of horses in need. My wife has volunteered there for a few years and I enjoy going to the events with her.

As a volunteer at All About Equine I am amazed every day by the horses and wonderful people involved with this rescue. This all-volunteer horse rescue is the real thing and puts the horses first. A very dedicated group of volunteers provides quality care for the horses while enjoying a friendly working environment. Lasting friendships are made here, everyday…equine and human.

I adopted my mare from AAE in 2015. I had the best experience going through the adopting process. My mare was untouchable when I first got her so, AAE allowed me to spend a month with her there before I adopted her. Wendy is a fantastic person and is so knowledgeable. The volunteers are always so nice and everything is very organized. All of the staff and volunteers were so supportive of Kona and I and they continue to be! I would recommend this rescue to anybody looking for a rescue horse.

I adopted a beautiful horse from AAE. This rescue is exceptional because they take the best care of the horses they take in, spare no expense when it comes to medical care by using a top notch horse clinic in the area, and they are tireless and innovative with their fundraising. They have been very consistent and placed a lot of horses in good homes. I would always go to AAE first if I wanted to get a new horse because you always know exactly what you are getting. They disclose everything about a horse's history, always have the best interest of their horses in mind, and they are 100% dedicated to making a difference.

This is such an amazing non-profit group. The work they do truly makes the world a better place one day at a time. I have been involved for several years now and have seen their work positively affect humans and horses beyond what words can describe. One of the most rewarding experiences has been watching the transformation of mammas and babies rescued from slaughter and through amazing dedication, patience, and love from volunteers seeing those same terrified, battered and essentially wild horses learn to trust humans. Then, in what can only be described as fate, those same horses come full circle to help humans learn to trust, have patience, and put their faith in another animal just as they did. It's truly remarkable to see the journey for both horse and human, and with AAE it is experienced on a daily basis.

Hey, if you don't mind getting dirty, mucking, and spending time with beautiful horses, AAE is the place to be. I had a horse a long time ago. I spent time with her grooming, riding etc. I was in heaven. I loved my little girl named Joy. I wasn't able to get another horse I missed the calmness and love between an animal and her mom (me). Some one told me about this organization that rescues horses and I immediately jumped on the band wagon, called and spoke to Judy to sign up for orientation and have never left. I was volunteering 3 days a week now I'm volunteering 4 days a week I'm on my 4th month. The shift leaders I have worked with Sue, Ashley and Michele are wonderful and full of information.

This is the place to be if you want to be with horses.

I started volunteering at AAE about a year ago, and I have not been disappointed. I have experienced a wonderful group of people working together for the common cause of rescuing horses. Being part of this team has truly enriched my life.

Four years ago we were looking for another horse. Our others horses had come from another equine nonprofit rescue. We wanted to continue our practice of embracing rescued horses. Since the last nonprofit rescue proved to be lacking ethical standards, we continued our search. Finding All About Equine Animal Rescue (AAE) turned out to be a true blessing. The director was very open with us regarding the nonprofit. We were able to obtain all information regarding their board, finances, veterinary services, etc. We were amazed at the transparency of AAE. After finding our wonderful horse, we felt so at ease to continue donation regularly. We also help financially with their fundraisers, medical issues, and general care. Two years ago we were able to find another horse from this organization. We feel blessed to know the honorable and virtuous nature of the rescue and its director. They have an all volunteer group taking care of the horses, each having such dedication to the cause.

When I first learned about All About Equine rescue I knew nothing about the terrible things done to horses. I myself am not a horse person so I asked what I could do to help out to save horses. The founder Wendy is just a friend and explained that they need all kids of volunteers. I decided that since I had a pickup Maybe I could help with picking up donations. Well that soon turned into making weekly runs to the feed store for Hay.55 gallon barrels of feed along with many other things needed. I have since moved away from the area but I do miss helping such a great cause. I miss all the volunteers who were always there to help me unload what ever I brought back to the rescue. Dave was the best of all and he always laughed at how I unloaded the hay, but was always there to bring the bales to the back of my truck. Is there a better rescue in the area. Not at all. theses people do the very best job possible as far as I am concerned.

This group is top notch, state of the art, natural horsesmanship plus to all who enter. They have a nurturing core group that makes sure all things great and small are taken care of before fostering or adoption.

When I started coming to this rescue, I didn't realize how much I would fall in love with the place, the volunteers, and of course the wonderful horses. It's an unbelievable feeling to be able to see the horses trust people again and heal. Some have even become a completely different horse by being at the rescue. I have seen horses come in very sad and defeated and leave as a happy, free spirit to their new forever homes. It is a rewarding experience every day I am able to go.

I started volunteering at AAE as way to give back to my community. Little did I know that I would gain so much more than I could ever give. It is a privilege to work beside so many hardworking and dedicated animal lovers. Of course our horses are breathtaking which makes it easy to spend time caring for them until they're matched with their forever home.
