Review for Equine Rescue of Aiken, Aiken, SC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The view from the top of the hill told me this was like no other rescue I've been to before. Rolling hills of green pasture flowed into one another. The contentment and peace of the grazing horses filled my inner soul. It was a picture book setting. Surely this was someone's private farm. As I took in my surroundings I discovered why this Rescue was so special. It was filled with the love and caring of the farm managers and the many volunteers who took it upon themselves to make sure the horses were loved and cared for. That the horses had clean living spaces, grooming, fresh water, grain & hay, farrier, dental, vet checks. Did I mention "hugs"? And then there is the farm maintenance man who, with his team of male volunteers, keep the 80+ acres of fences mended, the grounds mowed, the water running, the hay into pastures, and so much more. The contentment in the horses' eyes told me everything I needed to know. They are loved and with the farm manager's watchful eye will find that perfect "forever home". There is the general manager who gives tirelessly of himself promoting the Rescue raising the necessary funds to keep this Rescue functioning. How could I walk away from this little slice of heaven and not return to volunteer? It's been almost two years now and I'll be there until my legs no longer carry me.
