I have followed this organization since first learning of it, and could not be more impressed with their true caring and help for local horses in need. They have a large volunteer base with wonderfully dedicated people who help with everything from grooming to fund raisers. I have seen before and after pictures of horses they have helped and their knowledge and persistence are exceptional. They are very careful to make sure that any horse adopted from their facility is a true match and forever home. I could not recommend becoming involved with this worthwhile organization any more highly. Matt and Tina are the very best of the best!
