Starting a draft horse rescue

So, I want to start a draft horse rescue. For years I have been putting aside money for this goal, and in the next few years I'm hoping to start it.

Does anybody here have suggestions for me, or have any ideas on how to survive financially doing something like this. I don't need a lot, I just need enough to support my horses and I. I have a special heart towards drafts and I want to provide a rescue and rehab for them till they can be adopted. The other thing I was contemplating doing was turning over some of the rescues as trail horses and giving guided trail rides.

Please comment.

I think it's a great idea! Especially the trail riding thing! Drafts have such naturally quiet natures it would make them perfectly suited to it!! You could also charge a small fee to help feed them!!

Let us know how it goes!!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

I think that is a absolutely fantastic idea. I use to have a cross, which is now a police horse here in the UK.
The trail ride sounds a really good idea, that should bring some income your way, when you have visitors, you could maybe ask for sponsorship, or adopt a horse where they send you a small amount each month and you send them updates, pics etc....

Hope it all works out for you, really is a lovely thing to do! :)
