Gimme Shelter 2015
This was the second year for The Horse Shelter's Trainers Rally for Rescues event, in which 9 trainers took home a horse selected by a draw and had 100 days to train them from scratch. The horses were aged from 3-6 years old and other than haltering and trailer-loading, had no prior experience. At the end of the competition, all were available for adoption. Two of the trainers successfully bid for their horses at the end.
