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.
