Review for Throwaway Ponies, Farmersville, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I recently started volunteering here, feeding, and working with the horses when I can. I love horses and if I could I would run a sanctuary of my own, and I would absolutely model it after ThrowAway Ponies! The amount of work and love that goes into these neglected, abused, and forgotten horses is phenomenal! You can truly see it when you encounter each horse! They've come to trust and love humans again.
The children that attend the kids' clubs learn so much, not just about the horses, but to have confidence in themselves. In the short time that I have been volunteering, I've witnessed so many wonderful things, from neglected horses, untrained and forgotten horses, to the children that are learning to work with them! I am a huge fan of TaPs!!
May God continue to bless the Banders with volunteers and funding to help more needy horses!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Simply seeing horses and children develop a new spark as a result of the labor of love put into everything that is done here.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Only that I personally could spend more time and donate funds to this organization. TaPs, you are amazing!

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Absolutely, it is very humbling to know that some people have had to give up their loved horses simply because they could no longer afford to feed them. It also gives me hope that there are many people who care as much as I do for the horses and children.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

Honestly, everytime I leave TaPs, I feel accomplished and at peace.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

Role:  Volunteer & I feed once a week, spend time working with the horses, and will begin helping with the kids' club in the fall!.
