GENTLE GIANTS DRAFT HORSE RESCUE SOCIETY LTD
July 31, 2011

Excellent draft horse rescue run by exceptionally caring and educated horse people. They do not avoid taking in horses with serious problems. Horses are thoroughly evaluated and their medical/health care is supervised by outstanding equine vets, so each individual horse recieves every bit of medical attention, hoof care and proper nutrition to bring them to optimal health. Each horse aso recieves the professional training they need to bring them to their best potential for a useful career. Many are entered in horse shows and compete with volunteer riders, which is great experience, as well as going out on trail rides and being evaluated and trained to pull a wagon. Many rescues say they do this, but they do not. Horses are only adopted to homes within a reasonable distance, so the rescue can actually keep track of their health and general care for as long as that horse lives. All equine rescues should be this well managed!

The Great!

I have personally seen their facilities, met the staff, watched the progress of many horses in their care over time. They are amazing in the results they routinely achieve.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give them 500 acres to use as they see fit!

MY ROLE:
Donor & I contacted this rescue about 2 young, completely unhandled draft horses that were being offered for free, and thus in danger of going straight to slaughter. They persuaded the other So-called-rescue who was trying to get rid of them, to give them up. Gen.
