In just over four months, this volunteer-run organization found homes for six of their rehabilitated rescue horses. “The bond that a rescue horse has with a new owner is so profound and heart-warming,” said organization president, Teri Gustafson. “We can always count on needing tissues when we know a horse has found their forever home.”
