This place is amazing. The quality of care and help they give not only to the horses, but also to the adopters(myself) is great! Dani and the team helped me to adopt my horse with the confidence and support I needed to be successful. I’m learning so much and I am so grateful for Hope and so is Coppertop (aka Phoenix and D.H.;)

Hope Equine is a very special rescue. It may not be big but every horse and donkey gets one on one with Dani. She takess care of all of them everyday. So when something isn't right with them she knows it right away. I watched training videos with the rescues and they are very patient and gentle with them. It's great that they follow up on the rescues who are adopted out. With all I seen and heard this little rescue is 1 of a kind. Please If u can donate and help neglected and abused horses every little bit helps.

Hope Equine is an amazing organization! My husband and I adopted a horse (Phoenix) in April! He’s been a great addition to our equine family. Hope Equine volunteers do amazing things for these horses, they heal them not only physically but emotionally as well. A true blessing to the many horses in need across the state. Hope Equine partners with other rescues to help when needed. A++ organization & group of people. I highly recommend them.

As a recent retiree and horse lover I learned of Hope Equine Rescue and the incredible work they do to rehab and rehome neglected and abused horses. I have seen this organization restore hope into the lives of horses and at the same time give purpose to the amazing volunteers who are being taught to care for the animals. On many levels this group is an asset to our community. Through their events such as Help a Horse Day people can bring their families and enjoy activities for the kids and at the same time learn about the awesome horses at the rescue. Both animal and human lives are impacted for the good by being associated with Hope Equine Rescue!

Words fail to express both the scope of the task H.E.R. has set before them, and the ways in which they surpass expectations. Thanks Dani.

My husband and I have rescued from multiple rescues from cats to horses. So when it was time to add to our family I wanted to check rescues first.

Hope Equine Rescue is an amazing rescue to adopt from. They truly care about their animals and making sure they find good homes. They stand behind what they say. When I went through the adoption process they called all of my references, talked with my vet and farrier and did a home visit. They required multiple visits with the animal before adopting out. They go to lengths to make the adoption a success for both sides.

However, they understand life takes unexpected turns. They stand behind what they say. If life circumstances change and you can no longer care for your rescue they will take them back no questions asked or if it is a short term issue they will support you to make sure you stay together.

How this Rescue stood out from the other rescues I worked with is how much care they give after adoptions. They are a continuous resource to their adopters. They are there for questions and always give tips to help. They have a group where adopters can come together and support each other from stories about their rescues or questions we may have.

They are also very transparent in everything they do. No matter where you live they make you feel like a part of their group. They continually provide live updates on their horses and their day to day lives. Their updates are things I look forward to every week.

Finally they are always there for their community. They work hand in hand with their local sheriff department to help out when their are equines in need of help.

I'm so thankful I found this rescue and they have had such a huge impact in my life. If you are looking for a rescue I highly recommend them. I also recommend following their Facebook page they make you feel like you are apart of their family.

Thank you Hope Equine Rescue for not only changing the lives of your horses and donkeys but my life too.

My daughter has had a passion with horses since she was three years old. She volunteers at the rescue, I have seen the passion Hope Equine has for all the animals they take in. The love and care all the volunteers give to rehabilitate these animals that have been in most cases abused, is amazing. If anyone is in the market for a horse or donkey I strongly recommend this rescue. They know the do's and don'ts of every animal they take in.
