I have adopted two very special horses from Grune Heidi. This is an incredible farm that saves the wonderful, smart, personable, and athletic American Saddlebred breed. They work tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome these amazing horses. I will continue to support their efforts in every way!

I try to volunteer at Grune Heidi Farm when my schedule allows which is about once every other week. I love going to the farm to see the horses and Erika. Erika is always welcoming and the farm is always clean.

I have known Erika for many years and have enjoyed watching all the amazing transformations. I've seen these rescues come from all over, in poor conditions and poor living environments and to my amazement, witnessed what her expertise, excellent care she provides to these beautiful beings and her genuine outpouring of love for each of them has done! I am always in awe of each transformation. The amazing work she does in her rescues is truly a blessing to what would otherwise have a negative ending. Kudos to Grune Heidi Farm, Inc!
