While the Gleneden-based horse rescue group won’t own the trailer, Citation is making it 100 per cent available for their use. Carly Marchand-Jones who runs Freedom’s Gate took to Facebook to express gratitude for the use of the three-horse Maverick trailer. She noted Citation has been a big supporter of the rescue for years, maintaining Freedom’s Gate’s own trailer and even fostering horses in the past.

“We are overwhelmed at their generosity,” she said.

The generosity is especially welcome in light of a setback Freedom’s Gate endured over the summer, when Marchand-Jones’ pickup truck was destroyed in a suspicious early-morning fire on Aug. 7, 2019.
