Review for Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue Society Ltd, Mount Airy, MD, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

I came across GGDHR at the MD Horse Expo in January 2012. It took me seven months to be brave enough to come out and volunteer. They are wonderful to work with. I have a disability and they are very willing to work with me and my service dog so I can still help them and feel important. Working with the other volunteers and barn manager is wonderful. We all get along. They encourage volunteers to work with the horses and prepare them for their new perspective adopter(s). As we work with the horses, I've noticed more novice volunteers become much more experienced horsemen/women and helps us all run smoothly. I even have gotten attached with an inexperienced PMU draft cross rescue and was allowed to assist in its training with their trainer.
