GENTLE GIANTS DRAFT HORSE RESCUE SOCIETY LTD
August 24, 2011
I have long watched Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue from the other side of the county wishing I was closer to be able to support their monumental efforts! When I had the chance to visit the facility I was impressed with the quality and attention to detail that the entire volunteer crew exhibited. I have yet to see any other of the numerous rescues in the greater Baltimore area spend as much time getting to know the individual horses as GG does. Each horse is thoroughly vetted and cared for to whatever degree it needs from basic nutrition all the way to surgical procedures. Then each horse is evaluated to determine the extent of their skills, and then improved upon - they are trained to ride, drive, and are put to work trail riding and even showing. Not many rescues spend the time to put quality hours in with the horses. When you adopt from GG you are getting a horse that has been actively doing things rather than simply standing in a field waiting for someone to fall in love with their looks.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Their activeness in the greater community.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Be involved myself! Distance prevents me from supporting more than monetarily. I would love to be hands on with the big guys!
