I adopted an OTTB from Equestrian, Inc. and he had lived there for quite a while. I found him and fell instantly in love with him. The rescue volunteers are very dedicated and the board members I dealt with are very loving and passionate about making sure that all the horses go to good homes. I think they went above and beyond with some issues my horse had after leaving the rescue, and I am surprised at how much they actually care about their placements long after they are gone down the road to their new homes. The facility was always neat and safe, the feed room filled with neatly stacked bags of feed and hay, and the horses were all healthy and happy.

I was introduced to Glenda Smith and Equestrian Inc. in 2009 and she has never ceased to amaze me with her knowledge about and passion for horses. Equestrian Inc. also has a team of talented volunteers who have dedicated great portions of their lives to the organization and the horses it rescues. Due to the efforts of the entire team, lives have not only been saved, but horses are able to grow, become healthy and extremely happy. If you are looking to volunteer, donate or adopt, I highly recommend Equestrian Inc.
