CDHR is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving the lives of neglected or abused draft horses as well as draft horses heading to slaughter.They also organize gelding clinics to address the problem of unwanted horses, and promote and support equine efforts and animal rescue in times of natural disaster. Horses are quarantined, rehabilitated, and retrained, while receiving proper veterinary care until they are adopted, which includes a strict contract for their life-long protection.CDHR is run completely by volunteers, so 100% of the funds raised through events like this go directly to support and care for the CDHR horses.
