Justice is a 2-3-year-old Grade bay gelding. He is a sweet boy and his skills are still being evaluated.

Indy is a 17-year old 13 hand Welsh Cob Gelding. Indy has trust issues and is a bit nervous. Courtney is working on both issues. He also should be sound for riding when he is ready

Backstreet is a 17-year old 14.3h sorrel Grade Mare.
She is a beautiful girl with trust issues that we are working on. She appears to be sound for riding. She will be started under saddle when she is ready. She comes in to her paddock every day, twice a day to be fed and groomed on her own. Making progress!

Gypsy Rose…Rosie is a sweet mare that loves attention. She is curious and comes up to visit you at the fence even when it’s not feeding time. She stands for the vet and farrier. She also stands still while grooming and tacking her up from both the right and left side (blind side). I have used clippers on her mane and muzzle which she was a little curious about but tolerated. She has become fast friends with our 3 geldings- she is okay with being the low man on the totem pole but doesn’t get walked on. Lauren rode her for the first time this weekend (also Lauren’s first time riding in about a year!) she was very sweet – walk trot canter – but got a little tired and ready to go back to the barn around 30 minutes – granted she hasn’t been ridden since September.


Maverick is a 15hh 10 year old Sorrel Quarter Horse gelding. He was seized by Hall County as a stallion. Maverick is the proud Father of Ranger. Like his dad he was gelded at GDA then brought into GERL’S foster program.

Chad is a 15.1hh 10 year old Sorrel/White Paint.  He was surrendered to GDA and brought into GERL’s foster program.  Chad’s Trainer is Lisa Berry.

Ransom is a 20+ year-old Sorrel QH gelding.  He is 15.1 hands and solid as they come.  He is in good health,  gets along great with other horses, stands for the farrier and vet and is just a great, laid back trail  horse.  He already knows what to do and would be perfect for a novice rider.  This horse has power  steering and smooth gaits.  He would make a nice horse for someone wanting to do some light riding or needing a companion horse.

Ranger is a 14hh 4 year old Sorrell Quarter Horse gelding.  He was the winner of the 2017 Rescue Challenge competition and was trained by Kailey Perkins. He is a very laid back horse and would be great for someone who is interested in trail riding.
