Dani Horton and her husband have been the rescue that I have helped as much as I can since becoming aware of them a few years ago. A little distant from where I live but I have tried to support them as much as I can. A fund raiser poker ride was the first that I rode my horse in, something I never expected to do. Hope Equine Rescue, well without them the State of Florida would be bereft. They do SO much to help not only equines but donkeys and other species as well.
I was so impressed with their exemplary work, commitment to at risk equines, and community outreach programs such as Reading for Rescues that I chose them to continue their work in the Rescue facility that I founded. It is a model facility specifically designed for rescue, training and adoption, to provide a place for educational opportunities and refuge for animals and people alike. Dani Horton and her team at Hope Equine Rescue, Inc. are fulfilling every dream I had when I created the facility. If you're looking for a Great Non-Profit, you've found one.
I knew about the great work Hope Equine Rescue was doing years before I adopted from them. Dani and her team did what most would call impossible caring for more that 30 horses on a few acres of property. In 2017 I had to put down one of my older horses and needed a replacement friend for my other horse. I contacted Dani, after a few visits I settled on Dapple. His story was truly horrific he had been rescued along with 5 others who were abused, malnourished and had watched weaker members of their herd die at the disregard of their owners. It took almost a year to rehab him and he still has some issues with food aggression but I couldn't imagine life without him. Sadly his case is not unique, Hope Equine has stepped up many times to help horses in the same or worse situations. Luckily for Dapple his story has a happy ending and he owes that all to Hope Equine Rescue.
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 Rescue, helps take in the sick injured horses and donkeys when they have no place to go. They help rehab all of the animals back into their healthy and happy selfs.
Hope Equine Rescue goes above and beyond in their dedication to the horses and donkeys that need help. They are transparent in their monetary dealings, what is going on with the horses, both good and bad, and always, ALWAYS, do what is best for the horses.
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.
I volunteered at her,I learned so much,the animals horses donkeys ,big and small are thriving there.so much love and care offered.
Hope does amazing work with horses and donkeys. I have attended different functions that they have held and seen the difference they make in these horses lives. They are always there to take in horses no matter the time or day!!
This is a rescue that is driven to help as many horses as possible. If your ever in doubt watch the videos posted on their page. So much love and compassion along with hard work and determination. They educate, make tuff decisions and promote safe and healthy homes for their rescues.
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!
Hope Equine Rescue and Dani are a godsend to our community. So many heart wrenching stories come to the rescue but leave as glorious success stories thanks to the leadership, guidance and loving hands and heart of the founder, Dani. I'm a proud volunteer. Hope is simply AMAZING!
