Review for Throwaway Ponies, Farmersville, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ThrowAway Ponies is a remarkable place, providing a nurturing environment for abused and neglected horses, and, at the same time, allowing opportunities for growth and success for kids of all ages. The compassion exemplified by Karen Bander is fostered in all who come, as they learn all aspects of horse care, as they see horses coming from horrible situations pull through and shine because of the love and care they are shown and given, and as they themselves learn confidence working with animals much bigger than themselves. ThrowAway Ponies sets a standard for horse care that is a model that stands by itself for many to look up to.

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

evaluating myself and what I've learned, from Karen Bander, from the horses she takes in and works with, and from the other people who volunteer there.

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

do what I could to help other people know about her organization.

Role:  Volunteer & I have helped with the horses, acquainted people with the facilities, helped run events.
