Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Where can I start? I had a major medical event 3 years ago which can get one to start putting their life into perspective. After a brief 5 mins I realized that my only dream, my only true love in my life was finding my forever horse. My husband found Helping Hearts for me. Lisa was most generous with her time and probably the most experieinced horsewoman I had ever met. She guided me with kid gloves into purchasing my first horse from auction as I had told her I wanted to save a horse from slaughter. He was a huge draft, approximately 15- 17 yrs old that was slated for slaughter. He was thin, had rain rot but there was something about his eyes that drew me right to him. Helping Hearts board members and Lisa were there every step of the way to assist me in my purchase and subsequent quarrantine time. It has been 2 years and he and I just completed our first dressage test. We recieved 2nd and 5th place . Not bad for a thrown away work horse! So far my health has improved the doctors say because of my riding and caring for my boy! I will be eternally grateful that there are rescues like Helping Hearts that places the horse first and foremost. For without them I would never know the joy of partnering with my boy! Thank you Lisa and HHER! You saved not only my boys life that day but mine!

Review for Helping Hearts Equine Rescue, Perrineville, NJ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am currently working with Helping Hearts to find my forever horse. I have some special requirements and that is being taken into account. i have been to their facility to meet some of their adoptables and I can tell how much dedication, love and committment HelpingHearts has towards their rescues. These horses have the love and expertise they need to reach their full potential. The facility itself is very expansive and there are loads of pastures with rich green grass to nosh on. Volunteers of all ages are around to brush them and generally give them the affection they deserve. I know that when I do find my horse that it will absolutely be the right one for me...! I would also like to mention that without the founder of Helping Hearts dedication, we would have lost many horses to slaughter.

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

through their facebook page and other rescue organizations as well as Camelot Weekly page.
