25 Apr How You Can Help Horses That Heal Humans on National HELP A HORSE DAY
Horses Healing Humans is our Mission.
Today, let us celebrate and give back to them on National Help A Horse Day April 26, 2020
#NationalHelpAHorse Day is special because it raises awareness and advocates for abused and neglected horses across the US. This year, however, we are raising awareness about the challenging situations equines are facing as COVID-19 puts an immense amount of stress on our rescues since all of our income supporting programs are canceled.
Many of us are facing lost revenue and reduced staff and volunteer support, but we have put together a great, albeit very small, volunteer team to care for our horses. The response from the community and our volunteers is AMAZING!!
So let’s have some fun on April 26th as we will be posting on social media all day, doing Facebook live from the pasture, and bringing awareness to these precious and important animals!!
Ten Ways To Help A Horse on #HelpAHorseDay
