Thank you everyone for your continued support IGP can not do this with out you.
Please help us continue helping the horses by Monthly Sponsoring or Donations of any kind.

We CAN NOT do what we do, without YOU...the help of the public.
Donating or Sponsoring is super easy and it only takes a small amount to help.
Without your donation, we cannot continue to operate and help the many needing horses that truly need our help.

There is no one here at Iron Gait that receives a paycheck; we are all volunteers to the horses. 100% of all the funds go directly to the cost to properly care for the new arrivals,  horses waiting to be adopted, along with the sanctuary horses that require daily supplements and/or medical attention.

- Friesian mare- 10 yrs. old and  approx. 16.1 hands

She was saved from an auction where she was in a kill pen heading for slaughter.Severe quarter crack on front foot,

Allegra "Blue" - Percheron mare - 5 yrs. old and approx. 18 + hands

Due to previous owner having medical issues. 
I promised her owner that she will remain here at Iron Gait as a part of our Community, so that owner can visit Blue anytime she'd like..

Miriah - Percheron mare - 7yrs. old about 17 hands.
Owner has requested that Miriah stay here at Iron Gait as a part of our Community.
Scared to death of people due to prior abuse that happened 4 years ago. I will be working with her daily to try to regain her trust in humans. Hopefully I can do this
>>>prior to her rescue 4 yrs. ago off of a slaughter truck by a great lady, she was beaten
with a baseball bat in the head by the man that had her and went through a barbed wire fence while the guy was handling her
and for her correction of that, the guy tied her to a training post so that she could not move & cleaned her wounds by scraping them out with a pocket knife daily...

Please consider Sponsoring Miriah with her daily cost of living as we continue to work on her trust of mankind.
