This week’s honoree: Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue.
Each Friday, Horse Nation teams up with Ovation Riding to spotlight an individual or organization that is doing good work in the horse world. This week, we salute Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue.
This week’s honoree:
Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue
The organization was nominated for this week’s Standing Ovation by reader Misti West:
I thought you might be interested in a horse named Rudy from Oklahoma who was tangled in a fence during an ice storm and called in as dead but was actually alive and had been left in that state for two days. I hope you will consider writing something about this organization; this is a family-run rescue that has handled nearly 1,200 horses in their 10 years of operation, and they deal with STAGGERING abuse and neglect cases.
Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue is the first large-animal rescue based in Oklahoma City, giving the animals an important voice as well as a place to rehabilitate. Natalee & Shawn Cross, the founders of Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue kindly answered our questions about the good work that they do, as well as the story of Rudy.
What’s the story behind Blaze’s Tribute Equine Rescue?
Who is ready for a little Rudy and Double D on this beautiful Sunday?! These guys always know how to bring a smile to my face and enjoy life to the fullest.
