About: Executive Director Lynda Broas cofounded Equine Rescue over 10 years ago with a mission to provide rescue and care for endangered horses. The nonprofit organization, which runs a 56-acre farm in Walden (and another smaller one in Burlingham), offers care, adoption, and rehabilitation services to abused, abandoned, starved, and neglected horses. If the volunteers cannot find new homes for the horses, they'll give them a home for life at the rescue farm. Fund-raising events -- including a horse show scheduled for the middle of October in Montgomery -- help raise funds to support the organization.
