Review for All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc., El Dorado Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been volunteering with All About Equine for over 2 years now! There is NOTHING I do not love about the rescue, the volunteers and of course, the animals. Everyone is so willing to educate those around them with what they've found works, what doesn't work. They allow new volunteers to grow in their confidence and to learn how to "read" the animals. I help on the Grants Team and the success and growth that we have seen is beyond measurable. Just this year we were awarded two large grants from the ASPCA because of the amazing work the rescue and it's volunteers do. I can't believe I waited so long to start volunteering. Greatest experiences of my life have happened at AAE!

Review for All About Equine Animal Rescue, Inc., El Dorado Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

As a little girl I always dreamed of owning my own horse and riding off into the sunset...well the reality of living in an apartment as a child kind of dashed that dream. As I grew older that dream and desire never diminished. Knowing though that I could not yet financially own a horse I figured I'd work on my horsemanship and learn the ropes of owning a horse.

I researched nonprofits in the area to find those that would satisfy my need to learn and my passion to help. I found All About Equine and I've NEVER been happier. All About Equine's mission is to help rehabilitate and rehome the beautiful animals that they take in. In the 4 months I have been volunteering I have seen horses who have come in wild and fearful - be cared for so deeply that they are now able to be haltered and are on their way to being a less anxious animal. I've seen at least 5 horses go to their forever homes. I've seen kids who were afraid of horses learn enough to know that the horse is a gentle giant who just wants to please but deserves respect. I've seen a baby Barbados Sheep who was abandoned by her mama be taken in and loved by not only the founder and all the volunteers but even the resident Golden Retriever Holli who also "mothered" another baby sheep who needed the love.

All About Equine's volunteer staff and their trainers are amazing. There are no words that can express the impact they've had on my life and my future. I love them all so dearly and I look forward every week to my Saturday morning shift of feeding, mucking and grooming. It's the highlight to my week.

I STRONGLY recommend All About Equine to anyone who is looking to adopt, foster, learn and love. There truly is no better place.

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

I'd love for them to have more space. The ability to save more and rehabilitate more would be awesome.
