who is gait?
Gaited Advocate Intervention Team, Inc. (also known as GAIT, Inc.) Is a Maryland based 501(c) 3 corporation that has been formed to meet an ever growing demand for the gaited horse breeds and other equines who have become in danger of being shipped to slaughter or are in the hands of neglectful owners. GAIT, Inc. will serve as both a direct rescue for horses as well as a resource for educating others on the care and training of the gaited breeds and horses in general. In addition, we will educate the public about the issues of slaughter and auction pipelines as well as how the gaited horse can be used successfully as pleasure and versatility mounts via public exhibitions, fairs, expos and other similar venues. GAIT, Inc. will act as consultants doing evaluations, video and/or as networking facilitators for private owners as well as other rescues and non-profits that may not have experience with the gaited breeds, but who have taken gaited breeds into their rescue programs.
We gratefully accept products that can be used in the rescue or resold. We are a non-profit organization, so your donations are tax deductible.
GAIT is always on the lookout for free and inexpensive hauling, short-term quality quarantine care, and foster care. They also take donations of grain, bagged feed, hay, bedding, even veterinary, dental, farrier and other services.
If you have the skills to take on an at-risk horse, please contact GAIT and they can help you take those steps towards making your first save. You can also serve as a foster home LIKE US!
