Ride to Rescue : UAE Horse rescue & retirement

Ride to Rescue - current situation 
Oktober 2022

Update on Ride to Rescue : We are so relieved that Autumn is here . Summer in the UAE is no fun for horses , and since we don't have all horses in AC boxes , its a daily fight to keep all horses as much as comfortable as possible . Thanks God , all horses survived and are healthy . A lot of poor horses need our help . We accepted 3 more horses in bad shapes and 2 with laminitis. We are also still looking to find an own place in order to create a dream stable for horses , where we can have even more horses and with huge natural paddocks . My dream is also to have a rehabilitation treatment and research centre for laminitic horses. Thanks to all for supporting us . Please share and spread the word.

This is Mellow .
His previous name was Reqeem de Minuit from France . He was an Endurance racing horse. From race horse he ended up in a farm , and than he came to us .

 Mellow was skin and bone. He needed a couple of months to recover . After approx 5 months he showed interest in working and we started him gently with children . He is a very well hehaved fella , but on some days he just doesn't want to do much and we leave him do as he pleases. He is 18,5 years old .

 This little beautiful horse man wants your support . Can you sponsor him ? He is a very quite riding horse in the arena , very good with beginners but is a horsey for max 50 kg . Help Mellow and all our other horses to have everything during this Summer. 
Thx for your support!! 


Dear all , our Horses are in desperate need of Help

Covid was very hard on us and our Outstandings are tremendously high .


Please Help our horses NOW.

We cannot afford iinnthis moment in time to remove even one horse . The heat here in the UAE kicked in and will last to End of October.

Please support our horses , loosing their home now could mean DEATH for them .

Please Help ‼️

URGENTLY !!!!!!!!!!!!!


Next Steps - Europe

In the meantime I have 16 horses. Some have been with me for 7 years.

As the horses are getting older and older and the heat is making getting more and more difficult for them to cope with, I decided to go back to Germany with all my four-legged friends.

Why I do not simply sell them?

I am not interested in business with animals, I am interested in the absolute welfare of the animals.
They are one big family, live in herds and every member of the family is important.

To break their hearts at this old age and to separate them from each other would break my heart.

So I would like to ask you to support my project.
Every Euro or Dirham helps.

My plan is to buy or rent a farm in Germany, to help animals in the south of Germany and to offer therapies for children and adults, because for this purpose unridable horses are wonderful.

All horses were once imported from Europe to the UAE, 4 horses are from Australia, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina.

I would like nothing more than to provide the horses with huge green paddocks and a good stable, where they can spend their old age in dignity and live in peace, because here in the UAE they live mainly in their boxes, one because of the climate and secondly the stables here have only smaller sand paddocks, not comparable with German meadows.

Especially because of Salambo and Nounou, I take this huge task upon myself, because Salambo, my 22 years old Westphalian has an illness which causes him severe pain in higher temperatures, while in the cold he is much better.

Open your heart for my beloved horse family.

We need your urgent help!!

2019 we started with Go fund me:

Dear all! It’s August now in the UAE and 48 degrees! Yasmin was forced to move out with 6 horses and had to build a shaded area for them. Now they have only fans but the Arabien horses will get used to it after a while. She still needs to pay for the other 10 old once who could not live without AC and she needs to buy food and hey for the others who moved out! We started looking for regular sponsors for each horse to cover the costs long term but it needs time! So please help with your donation and keep sharing!!!! Thank you so much for your help!!!!

HELP is urgently needed!!              HILFE  FÜR PFERDE DRINGEND   BENÖTIGT !!!!

Your help is urgently needed!!! 

I need your urgent help to collect money for the project  "Ride to rescue" of my friend Yasmin in the UAE!!

Since a couple of years Yasmin rescues old, sick and abused horses in the UAE, gives them a lot of love and affection and a new home in her horse family. 
The project contains 16 horses now, who are in good condition again but most of them are not ridable, she has to cover most of the costs on her own. She is working with disable and autistic children where parents can book courses with her and  she gives horseman ship courses for all ages.  That´s her income.

Only 4 horses have sponsorships who cover their cost, the rest she has to pay! Now its summer time in the UAE and between 45-50 degrees, so the horses are in good stables with AC. But as everybody, apart from Yasmin,  is on holiday, there is no income for her the last month!
Her outstanding amount in around 35.000 € for livery charges, hay and medicine.

The management gave her time until end of the month to pay 20.000 € otherwise they will take the horses away from her and will not tell her know what they will do with them!!!!  

Please help us, Yasmin lives for her horses!!! She is the most unselfish person I ever met! She lives in 20 qm together with 10 rescue cats.... what should I tell you more!!!

Help Yasmin to keep her project alive!!!

PLEASE HELP before it´s to late!!!! 

German version:

Wir brauchen dringend eure Hilfe! Nur noch bis Ende July Zeit um Schlimmeres zu verhindern!!!

Ich möchte hier auf dieser Platform Geld für das Projekt  "Ride to rescue" unserer Freundin Yasmin in Abu Dhabi sammeln. Seit ein paar Jahren rettet und pflegt sie kranke, misshandelte Pferde, nimmt sich ihrer an, gibt ihnen viele Liebe und Zuneigung um sie wieder aufzupäppeln und ihnen noch ein paar schöne Jahre zu ermöglichen. Obwohl Yasmin schon sehr bekannt ist mit ihrem Projekt und mittlerweile 16 Pferde aufgenommen hat, bleibt sie auf dem Großteil der Kosten alleine sitzen.

Die meisten Pferde sind nur bedingt oder gar nicht reitbar. Ihr ältesten Pferde sind zwischen 35 und 40 Jahre alt und ihnen geht es bei Yasmin noch sehr gut.
Die einzigen Einnahmen, die Yasmin hat bekommt sie durch Horseman Ship Kurse, Arbeit mit Autistischen Kindern, geführte Ausritte. 
Die Pferde stehen im Sommer alle in klimatisierten Ställen und bekommen guten Futter und regelmäßig Heu zu fressen, was nicht die Regel ist in den UAE.

Derzeit sind Ferien und die Einnahmen von Yasmin gleich Null. Sie hat sehr hohe Außenstände, offene Tierarzt Rechnungen sowie Heu Rechnungen. Nur 4 Pferde werden durch "Paten" monatlich unterstützt.
Da ihre derzeitigen Aussenstände bei über 35.000 Euro liegen, hat der Stall ihr angedroht ihr die Pferde weg zu nehmen und ihr nicht zu sagen, was sie damit machen werden. 

Sie ist total verzweifelt und muss bis Ende des Monats die ersten  20.000 Euro bezahlen!  

Ich bitte euch um Spende für ein tolles Project, eine tolle Frau, die es geschafft hat, aus diesen traurigen, abgemagerten und misshandelten Pferden wieder gesunde, glückliche Pferd zu machen. 

Die Tiere lieben Yasmin, die Pferde im Stall drehen sich alle um wenn sie die Stallgasse entlang kommt und sie bleibt bei jedem stehen und weiss, was es am liebsten hat.

Helft mir ihr "Ride to rescue" project weiter am Leben zu halten.
