I previously operated this rescue for approx. 10 years, when it was Angel Horse Rescue, Inc. prior to it becoming On the Right Trail Horse Rescue in 2013. The location of the rescue is in Nowata, Oklahoma, where many of the rescue horses are housed, however, they also utilize several foster homes throughout the area to help shelter and care for the rescue horses in order to be able to save even more horses. These people foster the horses out of sincere compassion for the horse and generously provide feed and care for the horses they agree to take in. I am one of the foster homes and have several of the rescue horses on my private property.
I believe it is my personal facility that the one negative reviewer was referring to. She does not live 1/4 mile from the rescue location, she lives 1/4 mile from my personal property. I have 21 horses on my 64 acre property, counting my personal horses (many that were once rescues) and the rescue horses I am currently fostering. Unfortunately, it is a personal vendetta against myself rather than anything that the rescue organization has done, but she continues in her attempts to damage the rescue, and consequently, the welfare of the rescued horses, knowing how much I care about the horses. That is her way of "punishing" me for having what she believes is a nicer barn and facilities than she does. In her opinion, its not fair that some people have nicer things than others, regardless of how hard those people may have worked to get what they have. I do NOT receive any compensation from the rescue organization for the horses that I am fostering. My agreement with them is that I provide the care, food and shelter for those horses and that is my choice to do so with my own funds, because I am blessed and fortunate enough right now that I can afford it. I just felt that I should help clarify the negative review so that anyone that saw it, would not let it reflect badly on the rescue organization and realize it is just a personal, petty jealousy against another person, not the organization.
Great place and great people. She takes in and rehabs horses who would otherwise been sent to slaughter or left to starve. Shes also taken horses out of abusive situations and provided a wonderful future for them.
I live a 1/4 mile from Angel Horse Rescue and had a horse jump into my pasture that had been dumped. I called the rescue and they refused to take him. The rescue has new, secure and superior barn and stalls. They housed fewer horses than I on the same amount of land. I do not believe this is a true rescue. I would not donate to them and advise anyone to think carefully before donating.
