The number of wonderful animals we are able to help depends entirely on our budget. Our success is determined by your generosity. With your continued support means we can continue to grow and expand our provisions as well as clean housing that we provide for the horses year round. Allowing us to expand our programs for the  rehabilitation, adoption, and retirement of Percherons and other draft breed horses.

Sanctuary Horses

It is through a lifetime of Education, Great love & Respect for horses and understanding that we formed Iron Gait Percheron Rescue & Sanctuary.

“The first half of my life these kindhearted animals have brought into my life Love, Peace & Happiness. The rest of my life from this day forward, I want to return the favor to them by bringing Love, Peace & Happiness into their lives, as some have never in their days known or felt these three things.” said Denise Polydor, Founder and President of Iron Gait Percherons.

Please Help!




As with most non-profit horse rescues the number of wonderful animals we are able to help depends so much on our budget. With your support, in the form of a Donation or Sponsorship, means we can continue to grow and expand our provisions as well as clean housing that we provide for these horses year round. Our monthly supporters are a huge part of our success and making it possible to help horses in need and provide shelter and loving homes to them for the rest of their lives. Sign up for Monthly support; Choose a specific horse or help the whole herd! Possibly Sponsor a shelter. Just $5.00 or $10 a month would not change your life, but, It could help change the life of a horse in need of our help. Please help Iron Gait to continue helping the horses in 2016 by Monthly Sponsorships or Donations of any kind. Any Questions/Concerns feel free to call us at : 770.796.2598
