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!

Special Horses is run by caring, compassionate people who truly care about the lives of our equine friends. They very successfully ran an art auction for my non profit horse rescue and worked very hard to make sure it was a complete success. Three thumbs up for Special Horses !!

Your $$$ will be well spent when donating to Special Horses, they allocate funds to horse rescues who have many success stories. Their spokes horse works tirelessly promoting online auctions (I suspect he has human help at times) I have both won and donated auction items, it was a very easy process. I was very happy with the jewlry I had the winning bid on. I highly recommend checking their auctions, some great stuff shows up and the more you buy the more horses you help! Keep up the good work Special Horses.

Special Horses always goes above and beyond for the equine charities they support. They hold fundraisers, auctions, and advocate for legislation to improve the lives of all horses in our country. They have supported our charity for many years and are tireless in their support of equine in need.

Special Horses does great work raising money for horse charities. The spokeshorse, Ted Peeplover (you can find him on facebook) along with his human are busy collecting a variety of donated items to put in their online auctions, they always come up with interesting things you didn't know you needed until you see them! They have some particularly nice art work at times. I have bought several pieces of jewelry from them myself which arrived promptly and were just as they were pictured. I was so impressed with their efforts to help horses in need I donated an item to one their auctions myself and will do so again. Keep up the good work Special Horses, goodness knows there are 1000's of horses in need of rescue and help to find a new home in this country.

Special Horses works tirelessly to help other equine non profits across the country. that have horses in their care. Their fundraisers are always a success and they don't just do a few events a year... they do many every year. Special Horses has helped our charity with emergency veterinary expenses, and has reached out to us, offering assistance when they saw us take in a neglected horse or have a special needs situation arise with one of our horses. This is a wonderful organization, well run and transparent. We can never thank them enough for their help.
