I love Happened by chance horse rescue. I have been part of this rescue for 3 years and have had the best of times here learning about horse's. I have never been interested in horses till I came here. I have learned so much and enjoyed every minute of it. It has become my passion to help this rescue with the horse's as much as I can. The people here are a awesome group and so invested in helping the horse's. Everyone can benifet from coming here and helping out. We have adopted 3 great horse's that have been rehabed from happened by chance and we could not have asked for better horse's.

Dixie's mission to save horses goes far beyond a pat kn b the back, a "like or Love" on her website or Facebook page and even beyond getting a good night's resy. She possesses an indeterminable spirit and drive to do what is right and best for what is good for each animal. The only time her heart breaks is when she can't do more! She is that pioneer spirit that built and rebuilt this nation over and over again. At the end of life's journey she will hear her God say "well done, thy good and faithful servant".

The rescue and all of the volunteers care deeply about each and every horse that comes there. They give the horses the love they deserve that they didn't get before. You see the changes they make with the right nutrition, the love and the medical care. These horses make amazing transformations right before your eyes.

This rescue is a blessing to the horses and to the people who share the love for horses.

I used to have horses so when I found this organization right here in town where I live I started following them on Facebook. At times my heart just hurts for ALL that this young lady does for the horses she rescues. Her passion has no end! She'll come home from her full-time job and tend to ALL that needs doing, and there's never a grumble. All these horses have special needs. Just go to her Facebook page and check out her journey with Stormy, your heart will melt for both of them. This very caring, determined lady is also a mom to a special needs young man. Can she ride...the answer is no! Her mom is a trooper also...works her butt off also. Giving a shout out for the volunteers also. My hat's off to all.

Became a member in end of 2014 beginning of 2015. I was recently divorced and taking a wrong path. So I prayed always wanted to have horses and boom a friend introduced me to Linda and this wonderful organization. I found me and stopped my bad ways. The rescue was there when I was battling cancer in 2016. It was being with these animals of God I felt I could do anything. I have met so.many different people and have made some awesome friends. I would be lost if not for Happened by Chance Horse Rescue.

This is a wonderful rescue that was started because of a special needs mom saw the amazing connection horses have with special needs kids. Now it’s is even more with a heart to help the horses who were abused, neglected or thrown away. To show that these horses have purpose just like our special needs kiddos!! Thank you for al you do for both!!

Linda and her team of volunteers do a great job of rescue, rehab, and rehoming when possible, of these horses who are left behind by others who don’t care.
I’ve been to this rescue, and Linda proudly introduced me to every horse in her care, along with some dogs and cats.
Her love and dedication to the horses is very evident.
My hope is to one day soon be able to volunteer here.
I’m honored to have an association with Linda Nemec and her organization.
I’ve posted four pictures with my review. Two are before and after pictures of Fearless, who has happily been adopted after an awesome recovery at Happened By Chance Horses.
The other two pictures are of Stormy, a sweet mare who we’re all still amazed was able to survive. She will have a very long recovery, but the after picture I’ve included was just one week after her rescue. She’s continuing to make amazing progress at Happened By Chance Horses under Linda’s love and care.

The evolution of this organization itself is an inspiration. Sometimes, the smallest groups can have the best impact. The horses that are rescued are rehabilitated and cared for in a manner you would want and expect. You see heart and soul daily. Having been on various boards of humane societies, I believe that this group hands down beats them all.

Happened By Chance Horse Rescue is a great organization in Texas that has stepped up to help many horses in need. They are willing to work with other organizations for the well being of the horses and help in any way they can. Linda Nemec is an experienced horsewoman and will always try to help in some way if she can. We are glad our organizations have been able to work together in the past and look forward to helping each other in the future.

Triple Me Mac Equine Sanctuary has been working with Linda Nemec and Happened By Chance Horses Inc for over a year. They are an amazing organization who take in some of the worst starvation cases I've ever seen. They rehab them to full health then retrain them if needed and find great homes for them.
Linda and her group of invaluable volunteers work tirelessly for the horses, not only feeding and cleaning but also vetting, farrier work and regaining their trust of humans. And of course the never ending repairs to the rescue thanks to the horses!
I hope to continue my partnership with Linda and Happened By Chance for many years to come.

I have been very fortunate to meet and work with Linda Nemec and her rescue this year. Linda and I share a common belief, not just rescuing horse, but that rescues need to work together to help our horses in need. She has helped to renew my belief in rescues and rescuers.

I hope we continue our efforts to save at risk horses together.
