Zuma's Rescue Ranch is the ideal example of a non-profit dedicated to its cause. Its focus on horses and kids is true and honest and they really do put the cause above all else. The horses are taken care of in the best conditions I've ever seen and the programs are for the benefit of all. If you are looking for a place to donate your time or money, definitely check out Zuma's!

I came to Zuma's in the fall of 2012 looking for an equine partner! I saw Spice Girl an fell in love! The adoption process was thorough to make sure we were a match and I couldn't be more pleased with the friendly and helpful staff!

Zuma's Rescue Ranch is nothing short of magical! It is a horse rescue, haven for children, healing place for adolescents, training ground for young riders, and a supurb facility for outside professional's to teach natural horsemanship. I was in the the last category as I was a student of a visiting instructor, Anna Twinney of Reach Out To Horses. My training lasted 7 months last year and an additional 7 months this year. We were so very fortunate to have access to this wonderful facility with both indoor and outdoor areans and so many wonderful horses to work with. I am always super impressed by the condition of the horses at Zuma'a and by their training program and riding programs. Jodi is a super star with an awesome talent for running a hugely successful operation. Her vision is HUGE and she is well on her way to creating everything she has dreamed. It is a well organized and well funded program where volunteers, students, donors and employees are treated like family. There is a lot of Zuma Love being spread around this spectacular ranch and there are always many people buzzing about either taking care of the horses or taking lessons or going through a volunteer training. It is a "feel good" place for both horses and humans. I especially like the fact that the "rescue" horses at Zumas are all given a job once they are evaluated and brought up to speed with their needs. They not only get all of the nutrition and medical attention they need but they are placed in one of the programs at the ranch and are made to feel like an appriciated and respected individual who contributes to the good of the whole by being an intrical part of society and in particular Zuma's Rescue Ranch. Well done, Jodi and Paul and all of the staff, volunteers, animals and friends...keep up the good work!!

I was a student at a Horsemanship clinic taught by world renowned horse whisperer and trainer, Anna Twinney of Reach Out to Horses. We used the horses at Zuma's Rescue Ranch for many of the weekends of our training. Not only are the horses of superior quality, the care of them is exceptional, the people, Jodi and Paul and all of the volunteers and staff are awesome and the setting is breathtaking. Paul and Jodi do an amazing job not only rehabilitating and rehoming unwanted horses but also rehabilitating children and adults from the community by bringing them together with these equine beauty. When a horse shares it's heart with a human, the human is transformed...thank you Zuma's!
