They are a wonderful rescue! All the horses are well cared for and loved. In such a small amount of time, they have done so much. Everyone at Lady's Legacy makes sure that the supporters and visitors feel at home. This is something I've yet to see from another rescue. They treat us almost as well as the horses. Hahaha! If I could give this rescue 10 stars, I would. They need to be recognized by others. :)

I simply love this rescue and everyone who is a part of it. They have done SO much in just the short time that I have known them. Their horses get the best care, from vetting, grooming, clean stalls, best feeding and more love and kindness than these beauties have ever known. They allow their volunteers, donors and all of the community to share this rescue with them. They laugh with us, share everything with us, and deeply cry with us in very sad times and even through joyful tears. ~Lizzy Wooden Throckmorton~

I have known rescues before but Lady's Legacy stands out from the crowd. The care they provide for the horses rescued supersedes anything I have seen before. Any horse who is lucky enough to get saved by them gets a great second chance to a happy life!

Lady's Legacy has always been extremely transparent and honest with their operations. With the state of many animal "rescues" these days, their openness is of paramount importance to me. When I donate, I know where my money is going, and know that it is truly being used to improve the quality of a horse's life. This is a genuinely great organization, and I've been very pleased with my interactions with them- they are always very responsive and I believe they truly care about placing their horses with the right family- not just anyone. When I am next in the market to adopt a horse, it will most likely be from them as I know they will not mislead me about a horse's characteristics or suitability.

It is not often in life we come across people who have a passion for what they do as great as the team at LLER. They live and breath for the horses they save and care for. I have seen their work first hand and the kindness that they possess is pure. This is a charity that is top rated in my book!

I've never had the pleasure of visiting Lady's Legacy in person (yet!) but I am very impressed with the care they provide the horses they rescue. I've been following LLER since they rescued Joey and I've only continued to be impressed every time they rescue a new horse. You can see the time and effort put into each and every horse that comes their way. They go above and beyond the normal vet care and provide massage and reiki to the rescues which I think is outstanding! They are an admirable organization and a true representation of a successful equine rescue. I plan on continuing to support them both financially and emotionally! They make you feel like you truly are helping to make a difference and their presence on Facebook is amazing. Keep up the great work, Lady's Legacy!!!

I can not say enough great things about this organization and the board who runs it! The horses are very well taken care of. The progress of the horses since we began visiting in May is incredible. The wonderful people running the rescue are a wonderful group and my family and I are always welcomed when we visit. Keep up the great work Lady's Legacy Equine Rescue!
