Every year, we celebrate the holidays by hoping our horses will get the best gift of all, a home. This year, our Home for the Holidays event is simple ... we've lowered all adoption fees to our minimum of $250 for every adoptable horse if adopted by December 31! We have some very, very nice horses looking for homes so now would be the perfect time to bring them home, get to know them, and be ready for spring!

Help Us Help Horses In Need
Gentle Spirit Horses Rescue & Sanctuary
Gentle Spirit Horses is a rescue and sanctuary for horses based out of Sioux Falls, South Dakota; Adrian, MN; and Forest City, Iowa. Our mission is to provide assistance to neglected, abused and unwanted horses, and through outreach and education, promote responsible horse ownership.
Adopt a Horse
The main reason we are here - to help horses find homes! When you adopt from a rescue, you help two or more horses! Please take a look at our available horses and consider giving one a home!
We can always use volunteer help at our locations! From cleanup/repair work to grooming horses and even riding time if qualified, there are lots of volunteer opportunities at GSH!
Your donations of time, products, and money help us to do more than we could ever do alone. Thank you in advance for any help you can give!
From online auctions to seasonal fundraisers, clothing and other items always available, see how you can support GSH and get cool stuff at the same time!
Donate what you can to help
Your donation helps us care for the horses we have, and help those yet to come.
