EAST HAMPTON – They are an all-volunteer team at Autumn Ridge and for the past two years on their 20 acre farm in East Hampton, they have been dedicated to rescuing abused or neglected horses.
Known as the Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, 80 volunteers are currently donating their time and talents -- over the years crews have cared for numerous horses since the organization was founded in 2010.
There are 15 horses who presently are being rehabbed at Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue, many of them Draft Horses but Veterinarian Dr. Stacey Golub, who donates her time to the rescue mission said, “We rehab them and we get them fat and healthy and re-train them and if they suitable, we try to find them new homes so we can rescue some more.”
