How you can help


Our farm needs support every day of the year. Your tax-deductible donation will help us provide shelter, care and food for our equines as well as expand our ability to help even more horses in need. All donations, big and small, are greatly appreciated! 


GER relies on people like you! We could not do the work we do if it were not for our volunteers. We are always looking for help around the farm. It doesn't matter if you have horse experience or not, we have plenty of opportunities for everyone. Contact us if you'd like to lend a hand.
