She knew nothing about horses. But when she found one and decided to take care of it, her life took a major turn.
Yvonne Wall enjoyed her life in Bermuda Dunes, a community located in Riverside County, California. She spent most of her days in the almost 2-acre place, living a care-free life. But one fateful day, everything changed.
In March 2003, Yvonne was driving around Bermuda Dunes when she noticed a precious white horse. It was standing all alone under the only small tree in the field where it was fenced in. Though she did not grow up around horses and knew nothing special about them, Yvonne was amazed by the beautiful creature and was drawn to it.
Yvonne would then frequently drive by that area just to see the horse. One day, she saw the owner and asked if she could pet the lovely white horse. The owner gave Yvonne some carrots and let her feed the horse.
The owner then asked if she was interested in having the horse as it was up for sale. Without second thought, Yvonne said “Yes”. She named the precious white horse Squirty. That was the start of her admiration and love for horses.
Yvonne then began rescuing and taking care of horses. In 2005, Yvonne decided to establish a nonprofit rescue organization for horses and other equines. She has since taken in several horses and provided them a place where they can live without being maltreated.
Yvonne has faced tiring and difficult tasks in rescuing, caring and providing for the animals while also learning about them; there is much she has to know to properly taking care of these wonderful animals. Fortunately, she has many friends who have knowledge about equines.
Yvonne’s rescue organization, the Forever Free Horse Rescue, has been in operation for a decade now. There are three employees helping Yvonne at the rescue house. The funding of the organization primarily comes from donations and grants.
The organization has already saved about 38 horses and currently, it is housing 19 equines. It is now located on 19-acres in Aguanga.
