Join us on November 4th for a one mile walk to support unwanted draft horses!

Learn more about what you can do to help. Become a volunteer, adopt, donate, there are even free ways to help! There are so many ways to make a difference in these horses' lives, nothing is too small.

Join us for a one mile walk in support of unwanted draft horses on Saturday, November 4th at 10:00am.

As we kick off our fourth year of saving lives, we are thrilled to be able to walk one mile together to support the rescue of unwanted draft horses. The walk will be mostly level around a field, through a riverside trail, along a rail trail, starting and ending at our barn.

Grab some supporters to help raise money for deserving big guys:

  • Receive a Draft Gratitude T-Shirt when you raise $100 for the draft horses!
  • Receive a Draft Gratitude Sweatshirt when you raise $200 for the draft horses!

The money raised will be used to rescue and provide care for unwanted draft horses during the winter months. Farming horses have spent days, weeks, and years in harnesses working. They have earned a safe retirement. You can help us give that to them!

(To pick up your t-shirt or sweatshirt on the day of the event, please have your sponsorships completed by October 7th.)

VIRTUAL OPTION: If you live too far away but would still like to participate, you can!! Sign up, grab your supporters, and hit the trail where you are the day of the walk! Share a selfie on the event page! :)

Thanks to you, Draft Gratitude is able to give second chances to unwanted draft horses!

Monthly giving is an amazing gift that has a HUGE impact on our ability to provide care to rescued draft horses.

Join the Monthly Giving Team today for just $12/month! We would love to have you on the team!
