Review for Manes And Tails Organization A NJ Nonprofit Corporation, Hoboken, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known Ellen-Cathryn Nash (Cait for short) since 1980. She was always active with horses even when we were in College. My sister has several Warmbloods so I am not unfamiliar with horses. Cait takes on the hard cases and is a wonderful at rehabilitating these neglected and or abuses horses. The racehorses that her organization were all surrenders by their owners. It was a case of too much horse or the horse had been sedated and when the drugs were gone the true personality of the horse emerged. Not mean, just big and fast.

Manes and Tails Organization keeps the horses until they regain their health, are retrained to be Dressage horses and safe and reliable. Manes and Tails does not sell the horses (which I personally think is admirable but this does not increase revenues for the Organization). Manes and Tails 'Free Leases" the horses for their own protection; if a lessee wants to send a horse back, they can.

Manes and Tails Organization incorporated in New Jersey, NOT MAINE) is only about the animals and I have seen this first hand from the first horse rescued in 1995 to the most recent. There have only been three horses that have been in good health when Manes and Tails Organization took them. These horses are Willie, the 20 year old Quarterhorse who is the so called 'Mascot' and designated babysitter for the new rescues, then there was Callie who was a jet black Thoroughbred who had been beaten in his stall with an axe handle when he was a Steeplechaser in North Carolina, and finally there is Willow who is a Thoroughbred mare but needs an advanced rider with experience with Thoroughbreds.

I am going to donate to Manes and Tails Organization most likely in October when I have some disposable income available.
