Three years ago I was looking for a purpose in my life. I started volunteering with This Old Horse and found where I belong. The horses have taught me so much about them, and about myself.
Horses like Big – the grandson of Secretariat whose racing career ended at 3 years old after he broke both his front legs. Denali was a polo pony rescued from being euthanized and after months of regular food and patient loving care, this 30 year old looks like a different horse!
All proceeds from this 5k fun run, silent auction and open house event support This Old Horse, a 501(c)3 non-profit that provides sanctuary to retired, rescued and recovering horses. With the help of our community and partners, we raised more than $40,000 at last year’s event!
I hope you can join us on May 6 and experience the magic of This Old Horse for yourself! Saving one horse won't change the world, but the world will surely change for that one horse.
