Unfortunately, I have to agree with the first reviewer. We were thrilled to be involved with Gentle Carousel until there were red flags everywhere. We found out that they hoard horses. They admitted to having more than 50 horses on the property and they admitted to using their donations to support the 40 plus horses that are not part of their program. They admitted that many of the horses are not handled regularly and are not given regular farrier, dental or medical care. I was devastated to find out that this organization is a just a lot of smoke and mirrors - especially all their awards - and that the horses are not cared for the way they should be. I hope the truth comes out so these amazing horses can be placed in loving homes and people will no longer be scammed out of money.
If you question this review, check their Facebook , website and book yourself and count how many horses they have - and continue to have with five new babies this year alone. Also ask them why all of their divisions left the organization...
I used to enjoy this non profit until they were always asking for money that was not really needed! I asked why they are never willing to help other miniature horse owners with their therapy horses and why they felt they needed to be the only ones out there with therapy horses and they blocked me from their Facebook page:( I do feel some of the donated money that they get spent on things other than the horses!!!!
