I have been involved with this rescue for 2 years after I offered to transport horses for them. The people at Save the Horses are superb! They are extremely caring people and I am proud to be a part of them whenever transportation is needed.
I have also helped rescue a few horses here which had the support of this organization. Without them, I would not have been able to do so. My horse club members have learned much through helping with the rescue horses kept here and I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to rehab.
With programs like Barn Buddies, save the Horses has spun its magic for animals by focusing on the next generation and nurturing a love for animals. And the animals aren't the only recipients since the relationships this nonprofit fosters help build confidence and acceptance in the young people who participate. Since animals love unconditionally and are nonjudgmental, often the barn is one of the safest and most accepting place in the world for youngsters; truly a haven in a world short on patience and fairness. Focused education, hands on learning, building a generation of people who have a heart for all creatures, animal activism, animal rescue, and an inability to walk away from animal or human need makes Save the Horses a truly outstanding niche rescue organization for large a animals.
What are truly inspiring rescue this is. I have never seen a rescue so dedicated and caring and willing to help all animals in need.
Cheryl, of Save The Horses is an amazing woman who helps all animals far and wide. I live in NH and although she was very busy with her rescue in GA she took the time to help me with an animal issue. I have followed her rescue ever since. Her compassion and steadfast readiness is a huge gift to the animals that cross her path.
This group of people are truly inspiring! The property is wonderful- there is always learning and volunteer opportunities. The have hypatherapy to help children with disabilities an awesome horsemanship classes! These folks are very much needed in a rural area as well. I have seen them travel to great lengths and spend time, effort and money to save some animals that required transport from outside of the southeast. Truly a great non-profit that is worthy of support and love!
This is a wonderful organization dedicated to helping the betterment of horses in need!!
What a fantastic organization! I have never met a more caring group of volunteers so excited about sharing their love, compassion, and devotion to the animals of Save the Horses Farm, a sanctuary for many of these animals.
About a year and a half ago i saw a post from Horse Rescue Relief and Retirement Fund Inc (Save The Horses) and i liked the page. Since then i have been keeping up with their news and rescues, sharing in triumphs and tragedys.
Last year i decided to try and make a difference and i got my own rescue, Joe. We started off doing great then Joe got an injury. He started to recover but then sustained another. The recovery has been long and trying but we are determined to not give up. I knew Cheryl and her staff works with all sorts of cases of horses ranging from neglect, abandoned, retired etc so i reached out to her for some much needed advice and guidance. Not only did she do that but helped with a bit of Joes vet bill. They not only help the horses they bring in to their care but help others like me who are looking for the light in the darkness.
My Joe means everything to me and for a complete stranger to lend a hand and give advice, it means so very much. Joe and I are very greatful as im sure are all the horses who have been rescued, rehomed and saved.
This charity is so wonderful and deserves the recognition it should.

Squirrelwood Equine Rescue and Sanctuary is a small but mighty horse rescue. Their work with rehabbing horses is incredible, starved, broken, pulled from slaughter pens, local emergency rescues - SES is there. Despite donations being low and many horses to feed, vet expenses, retraining, medical treatments - they love the horses beyond compare. Please visit http://squirrelwood.org/
