Hey guys. If you’re a follower of mine, you know that I work at a ranch that has many beautiful horses, and we work on teaching kids to ride as well as training the horses through love and leadership. We have many students and summer camp kids that adore our horses, and we adore them. There are three of them pictured above (Scout, Rain, and Mona).
The ranch is a non-profit rescue center, and more than 75% of our horses are donated because they need a home. We have many horses that were considered useless or homeless for a while, and the ranch has turned them around and gotten them healthy again, and they turned out to be the most loving, kindest animals that I’ve ever seen. We have 33 of them.
The people who work there are the kindest and most accepting people I’ve ever met, and we constantly get kids with social and/or mental disabilities that thrive and take on our horses as their own therapist.
However, this summer, they didn’t make enough money. Not enough kids signed up. They’re $3,000 in debt, and on top of that, they have a couple of sick horses that desperately need help from the vet (for instance, Blanca, a sweet white pony, has cancer that needs to be removed). If that wasn’t bad enough, $1,000 was stolen from them recently. It takes a LOT of money to feed 33 horses, and in the winter time, it costs even more. They really need donations right now.
I can’t stand the thought of them having to go under. If they get any more in debt, we have to start giving away our horses and separating them from their herds and the ranch’s owner, Claudia, who has tirelessly worked with her family to keep the ranch in order and keep the rescues (both human and horse) coming in. But now, she needs your help.
If you could spare even the smallest amount of money, please, PLEASE go here. They need it desperately, and they don’t need a whole lot of money. Donations of any kind are accepted and needed, so please go!!
I’ve seen tumblr get people surgeries and out of abusive households and donate enough to keep small non-profits or rescue centers up and running, and right now, their ranch and rescue center needs help. Every single one of those horses and Claudia’s family are my family now, and we desperately need help. I hate it when people do this, and I never thought I’d say this, but PLEASE reblog this post. Even if you can’t donate, maybe someone else can.
