Laughing Pony Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization whose purpose is to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted and abused horses of all breeds. Our long term goal is to have a facility where disabled children and adults can take part in therapeutic riding programs featuring rescued horses.
Celia has rescued more than 300 horses, nursed them back to healthy mind, body and spirit, and adopted them out to loving homes.
At ten years old, she got her first horse, Hot Foot Honey. She used to ride her bareback through the streets of New York. She later got a job breaking, training and exercising horses for the racetrack, and riding in the fair races.
Her first rescue was an Appaloosa stallion named Don, who was on his way to the feed lot to get fattened up and then sent to the slaughter house for meat.
Celia was among the first to go to Nevada to help rescue the wild horses. She now works closely with the United Pegasus Foundation. They care for hundreds of horses and have sent many of the difficult cases to Celia for rehabilitation.
