An elderly horse suffering from years of abuse is finally getting a second chance at happiness thanks to this organization! 26-year-old Chester could no longer stand on his own when he was taken in by Gentle Giants Draft Horse Rescue, which led many to believe that the animal’s time was up. In fact, the horse sanctuary’s social media pages were flooded with comments claiming that prolonging the creature’s life was unnecessarily cruel. However, Gentle Giants refused to give up on Chester. After receiving medical attention and, of course, lots of love, the horse is now doing better than ever!

Chester’s transformation was so incredible that Gentle Giants decided to create a new program in his honor. Dedicated to saving “diamonds in the rough who just need a chance to shine,” Chester’s Champions is seeking monthly donations here.

At 26 years young, Chester is finally making up for the years he spent suffering. His recovery still astounds us and to those who cheered him on and rallied for an old horse in need of a helping hand, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
