White Rock Horse Rescue and Retirement, Inc. (7)

White Rock Horse Rescue and Retirement, Inc. (7)

 I had the most wonderful day today at White Rock Horse rescue.I feel like a new person.It's been a very long time since I have been on a horse and I couldn't have found a better group of people to help  me rediscover my love for horses. Everyone was so patient and helpful including the sweet Appaloosa, Surprise, that I rode.
I can't say enough about what these folks do to help the horses and all those who come in contact with them. It is inspiring.
 Surprise is the horse I rode and Rudy is her little boyfriend that came everywhere we did!

  1. They look liberating and humbling at the same time! What a wonderful picture too. Maybe we should do some kind of fund raising for them?

  2. There is a Paypal donation set up on their website and they explain the cost of caring for the animals as well. I have put the word out on Twitter, Facebook and here. I encourage all of you to link this to your sites too. Thank you.

  5. I've been there many times, you always see and learn something new. It is one of the few places you can go where people are encouraged to be "hands on" with the horses, goats, sheep, llamas, pigs, and dogs. It is an amazing and very welcoming place to spend the day!

  6. This is not a good family inviroment. She is pshyco!!! She yells at you over everything doesn't matter if your doing it right or not you get yelled at. Its not a place you want your kid to go either she cuss, will scream at your kid even if they don't know how to ride. Never ever board your horse up there unless you want it to loose weight and let other kids ride it without your promission. Its horrible she shoots her own horses even when its illegal!! She shoot four over her horses I was there animal control said it was okay if She had a license person do it and wasn't near any houses. She didn't listen she had someone shoot them without knowledge of shooting a gun the second horse he shoot he had to shoot it multiple times the horse kept getting up and running away!! Animal control has a case on her one more thing she does wrong she gunna be shut down and I'm gunna be glad because she dosent help the horses she ruins them!! She says its best for them to be in a herd inviroment its not they get picked on some don't get to eat because they aren't high enough or there to weak its horrible she doesn't even check to see if the saddle fits them right she just tosses it up and doesn't even cinch it up right or tight enough for it to stay on the only reason she has you fill out those release of liability is because she doesn't want you to Sue here because she know you will fall off!! I have fallen of or her horses 50 or more time because of her putting me on horses that haven't been risen before, they spooked or Buck, the saddle wasn't on right I have been riding for six years almost seven years so I know how to ride but she's just crazy, horrible, pchyco. She needs to be shut down!!!
