Special Horses began with one woman and one special horse who recognized the need to help other, less fortunate animals. They support all facets of, and many varied, equine rescue. There is always another idea and goal to meet. Plus, they put the FUN in fundraising using social media, with zany and unusual auctions that are eye-catching and attractive, even to non-horse people. I love supporting Special Horses!
