Sanctuary Horses PDF Print E-mail

~April 18th 2011 to present date~
181 horses helped by IGP
132 Horses adopted into loving new homes
35 Sanctuary Horses due to special conditions
This is not including all of the horses that IGP helped through Community Outreach;

when Horse Owners across the USA needed medical
or Nutritional help through out the years.

We are EXTREMELY PROUD of our TEAM IGP existing of Friends, Donors,
Sponsors, Volunteers, Farriers, Trainers and Veterinary Doctors
Together we have made ALL of this possible in helping all of these needing horses.
In which without all of you, none of this would have been possible.

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.
All donations can be 501 Tax Deductible


Please Donate and Help us Help the Horses!


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.
