Help raise money for Gerdas Equine Rescue Inc.
Peach being ridden the day before yesterday by Allison's 11 yr. old daughter. This does NOT mean I feel this pony should be adopted for a young child, but only to show you this is a wonderful pony who's handicap of being blind is so not a handicap! In Peach's other life when she was seeing she had done it all, and she really enjoys going back to that time of her life by being ridden! PEACH IS FOR ADOPTION!

Thrown away, cast off, downtrodden and forgotten. Rescued and retrieved, sometimes from the darkest corners of places that will haunt your memories for ages, heartbreaking enough to crack even the str...ongest soul. Gerda and her volunteers work miracles. When there is no more room and the call goes out “can we possibly save another?”, the masses come together and labor until the answer is found, and the answer is always yes. Watch the transition of hopeless to hopeful through the many before and after pictures, as horses and ponies find their new forever homes. Through it all, kindness, care, consideration, respect and above all, love, shines through from this rescue. See More

First class in the world of rescue! Gerda's Animal Aid is a beacon of light to so many discarded horses. The Little Farm is a soft landing for horses of all shapes, sizes and breeds. Its a place where... the care is second to none. I have nothing but admiration for the wonderful work that this rescue does and for the people who work tirelessly to ensure that the animals in their care never fear for their futures again ♥ See More

Our daughter is an avid member of the equestrian sport, and we have been leasing ponies for a few years near our home in Boston, so we are knowledgeable about quality horse care. We were fortunate to... find Gerda's Animal Aid about 1.5 years ago, and have spent time helping and volunteering at the farm. We are so impressed with Gerda's sincere commitment to help animals in need, and the quality, loving care the she and her team provide to all of the animals. GAA is a special place that we support and highly recommend! See More

Gerda and her team work tirelessly to save hundreds of horses as well as other critters when they are in need. Gerda saves those that need it the most and puts the time in to make them while again and... adoptable. She is one of the most generous and caring souls you will ever meet. I am proud to help train the horses that are fostered and quarantined in NY as it is a really worthwhile cause. There are so many generous supporters of GAA that make it all possible. See More

I've visited Gerda's twice, and it's completely heart-warming to see the love and attention showered on these horses, often after neglect or mistreatment elsewhere. A lot of that is down to the unstop...pable energy of Gerda and her crew.. I was especially touched by their care for a small blind horse, that, despite having been wounded and abused, is one of the most trusting and sweet animals you'll ever meet. I think that's a pretty strong testament. See More

It is amazing the job Gerda and her team do! We visited Gerda's farm in December and we loved it! Their dedication and loving care for their rescued horses (even on freezing days full of snow) was im...pressive. Thanks for teaching us a lesson of what caring for others means. See More

Gerda's Animal Aid can be called home away from home. Every horse is treated as if he or her is their special one and only .You can't find a better place to be a horse, It is your lucky day when you there and will be for the rest of your days, as your forever will be hand picked. I have been to this rescue and it is amazing!!! If i was a horse I would want to live there myself. It is an incredibly beautiful well kept loving place! Thank you GAA for what you do! See More

Mak-Too is a 22yr. old Egyptian/Arabian reg. gelding with a personality you will love...funny and interactive! He bonds deeply with his friends and will make a great companion for either a gelding or mare! He is a sway back but has no medical issues---no supplements or special diet. He's an easy keeper and is good for the farrier and vet.

REMEMBER PEACH? She’ll be heading back from her winter foster soon and we’re hoping to find her a home of her own. She may be blind but manages great and still enjoys being ridden. She’s a super kind soul and would make a great companion too.

Here’s her full story:...
Peach is a super sweet 10-year-old Appaloosa blind pony who has been at GER for over three years now.

We were contacted by a woman who rented an apartment from Peach’s owners to see if we would accept Peach into our rescue if she could convince her owners to surrender her to us. She had watched Peach deteriorate in their care and go from a prized show jumping pony to a cast away left to fend for herself in the field when she started to lose her sight. Her owners decided to send her to auction but couldn’t because she had injured herself walking into a jagged fence post. She had a huge gash in her hind leg that had not been treated or cared for...just left to hopefully heal enough to send her on her way.

We accepted her into GER and everyone who meets her immediately falls in love with her. She is the sweetest, kindest girl you will meet but no one is willing to take her because of her blindness. Peach still loves to be ridden, we ride her bitless and she does walk, trot, canter in the ring and will go out on flat trail once she trusts her rider. She gets along well with other and had adapted well to the comings and goings of horses here at the rescue. She truly deserves a chance for a more stable routine then we can give her here.
