Guardian Hearts Equine Defenders

The best horses... "have heart" in a way that most human beings can not fathom, much less possess. The best riders... Know that while their own hearts may never be as big as their horse's, It must be strong and generous enough to be their guardian. ~ Unknown

Mission

At GH we are dedicated to the recovery of horses in transition, from abuse, neglect, and the slaughter pipeline. Our goal is to empower them, and allow them to become healed, whole, and secure in homes that will see them as we do. It is our mission to see that they are defended and do not suffer by virtue of happenstance over which they are helpless victims. In order to make the transition from unwanted to beloved family members, we utilize numerous tools, from letdown, to veterinarian care, farrier care, nutrition programs, professional retraining, on-site training and exercise, and more. We have a special interest in Thoroughbreds, Arabians & BLM Mustangs. Thru Advocacy, Education, and our Hearts Programs, our goal is to rescue, recover, & improve the lives of as many horses as we can.

Adults

Guardian Hearts' "Maebelline Clinics" are designed to provide animal control agents, Deputy Sheriff's, and local authorities with training courses designed to educate and provide training for Equine (& other livestock) laws, health, nutrition, and general care as per acceptable guidelines and NC state law in order to better evaluate, document, assist, and in worst case scenarios, litigate for animal abuse, neglect, and cruelty cases. Unlike small animals & family pets, far too often we find that training/education is limited, or unavailable, with regards to horses & other livestock. With the help of our veterinarians and farriers, GHED hopes to be able to assist local authorities to provide healthier, better lives for these amazing Hearts and more comprehensive intervention when problems and/or issues are discovered. We are currently working with Wake, Chatham, Alamance, Lee, and Nash counties and hope to expand into Guilford, Davison and Randolph Counties by the beginning of 2021.
