Wonderful caring home of our rescued equine friends.
I have been a supporter of Spirit Acres for 8 years and just wish I could do more. Kat has done a wonderful job caring for abandoned and neglected horses. When volunteering there I saw first hand the incredible effort she put towards their care and the love and compassion she showed to all the horses at Spirit Acres.
Kat does a tremendous job every year finding homes for horses and caring for horses at the rescue. Montgomery, TX is fortunate to have her as a resident as she provides a vital role in the community caring for the needs of our unwanted and abandoned equine friends.
Kat continues to work hard and do a great job caring for our equine friends. We continue to support her efforts. We were fortunate to work there for several years and adopt three wonderful horses.
Kat does a remarkable job taking in and caring for horses of all sizes and shapes. The last time we visited she had several horses she was nursing back to health from ills contracted prior to their coming to Spirit Acres. Feeding and caring for the large number of horses is very expensive and I would encourage all who can afford it to make a donation to this wonderful organization.
I was contributing to Sprit Acres until for some unknown reason it was dropped from listing on greatnonprofits? I have visited the farm, a rescue facility for horses abandoned or for some other reason find their way to this sanctuary with all kinds of maladies and are taken care of by Kat Matrician and her helpers. She does a noteworthy job of caring for these animals until they can be adopted by someone. This is a wonderful labor of love for these animals. No one in the horse community or horse lovers could find a better way to help with this endeavor than to contribute to these needs. The labor of love is their but they need finances to feed and care for the horses.
i have been involved with Spirit Acres for 8 years. I contacted them about their services when i had to move back into town with an alzheimers wife and needed to do something with 2 horses we had. They were very helpful and i have grown to know Kat Matrician and her work since that time. She takes in horses from government agencies that find horses on the side of the road, in abandoned acreage and many other sources like mine, any horse that needs help. All need food and quite often medical attention. She turns away none! Her work is one of endless love for the horses and she needs considerable help, physical and of course financial. I am a constant contributor and wish i could do much more. I highly recommend this organization and Kat for any help that you might be able to give.

Spirit Acres Farm Equine Rescue and Sanctuary is a wonderful place where rescue and retired horses can live and be cared for and loved by many volunteers within the community, as well as at-risk youth in the community who benefit by learning to care about and care for animals in need.
Kat Matrician does a wonderful job of making these horses a priority and by engaging with and educating the community to participate in any way they can.
Thank God for Spirit Acres Farm Equine Rescue & Sanctuary. The work that Kat does for horses in need of rescue and care is wonderful. We could certainly use more generous, hardworking people who care about animals the way that Kat at Spirit Acres does.
I have financially donated to Spirit Acres and have supported Kat in her endless devotion to the care and well-being of the Horses who end up there there for a number of years now. Feeding the Horses, caring for their physical needs (farrier, vet, etc.) and maintaining the property are costly, and Kat works tirelessly to make sure all is taken care of. It's a lot of work to do so! Kudos to Kat and the wonderful volunteers there who improve and enhance the quality of life of the Horses in their care. Kat has an excellent head for business and knows how to utilize financial donations to the greatest extent and benefit possible for the Horses. Donations of any kind and volunteers are always needed to ensure all needs are met for the Horses. This is a top notch non-profit organization which deserves and would greatly benefit from your assistance/support. No donation is too small; all is appreciated.
Spirit Acres and Kat are a safe haven and a loving advocate, respectively, for horses who have been neglected, abused and/or abandoned. Kat works incredibly hard to ensure that horses who live at the Farm are well cared for in all regards. This non-profit rescue is most deserving of donations, and is always appreciative of new and seasoned volunteers helping to make life for the horses the best that it can be. Kudos to Kat and volunteers for all that you do!
I live near Kat and all her rescue babies. I get the opportunity to see the working of the rescue year round and I can tell you these people work tirelessly to take care of their rescue babies. You can be sure your donations are put to good use and I would definitely recommend supporting this rescue.
Spirit Acres continues to be the best place in this part of the world for abused or neglected horses to find a safe and loving sanctuary. My two aged mares are comfortable and well cared for there, and I love seeing how each of the horses there find their place in the herd. They deserve your support.
Kat Matrician of Spirit Acres, is a well-kept secret in Montgomery, TX. She keeps up with the rescue and farm that is home to more than 50 horses, a pot belly pig, cats and dogs, that she has rescued over the years. It is her mission to find these animals good homes after she tends to their injuries and abuse that they suffered previously. Kat manages to keep everything going on the farm, but desperately needs more support from the community and horse lovers everywhere.
Please donate a bale of hay or an hour of your time to ensure the safety of these animals.
Spirit Acres is home to 60 horses who, with the efforts of Kat Matrician owner of Spirit Acres and caregiver of her four legged friends, were rescued from homes where they were neglected and/or abused. Some of the owners were going to put their horses down but Kat said "NO!" Her love for the whinnies shines through every day.
I have taken pictures of Kats place and critters a few times. The love that she shows for her whinnies shines through.
When I found out about Spirit Acres I went to visit as soon as I could. I can't express how impressed I was with Kat Matrician and her devotion to the horses in her care. She tends to each one as if it was her only horse. She knows every medical issue that they have and she has rescued 50+ horses. I only wish she had the all donations she needs to address everything on her to-do list. And I also wish she had more volunteers to help her carry the load which is a heavy one. She is an example to us all in her love and compassion to these beautiful creatures.
I only wish I could donate more to this wonderful horse sanctuary. Kat gives her time and love to these horses that have been abused and neglected. Thank God for such a fine person, we could use so many more people like her.
Even a blind man could see the love Kat has for the animals at Spirit Acres. I've visited numerous times to take pictures and just visit the animals. Kat is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. She genuinely cares about the animals who are lucky enough to find their way to her sanctuary.
I have done photography sessions at Spirit Acres. Kat gave me the names of all the horses, and dogs, that I photographed. And she knew their names without hesitating. She also gave me the stories behind each horse, telling the horrors that they had gone through. After taking many pictures, I grabbed a brush and went out into the pasture to groom some of the horses. They were all well fed and appeared to be over coming their mistreatment they had endured before being rescued by Kat. She is doing a tremendous job with the horses and is very careful when placing them in forever homes. Each one holds a special place in her heart, just as she holds a special place in theirs.
I volunteered at Spirit Acres for 5 years (2007 through 2011). Although I no longer get to the farm to volunteer, I continue to support the rescue with monthly donations. While volunteering, I rarely felt like I was at a rescue beause the farm had a sense of peacefulness to it. Yes, there was always work to be done, but it was the noble horses that gave the rescue its sense of meaning and beauty. The owner, Kat, is a special person. I have no doubt that she speaks and understands the langage of horses. And having been a horse women her whole life gives her the strength, knowledge and insight to care for the horses that come through the gates to spirit acres. I hope that anyone reading this ,or any of the other reviews, who has thought about getting involved with horses will visit spirit acres website and find a way to be a part of a rescued horses new life. It was becuse of the sponsorship program that spirit acres offered, I was able to sponsor a rescued horse (the horse of my dreams) and adopted him soon after.
SpiritAcres is a place that serves as a haven for horses in need. It is run by Kat, who has the heart and determination and resoursefulness to accomplish this great task. I have been there myself and have toured the place with Kat. I've seen the horses and have met some volunteers. SpiritAcres is definately a place that our area needs. Texans have horses...that's a fact. However, some people obtain this great animal without the understanding and knowlege needed for the responsibility. Unfortunately, often times, horses are abandoned, mistreated, starved, even purposely severely abused. In those cases, if the horse is blessed, it is rescued and can go to SpiritAcres. This is an endeavor that I support, though not nearly enough, with enthusiasm.
