Our 3rd Annual Tack Thing Event and Silent Auction is coming up on July 6th and 7th so mark your calendars! Come out and shop or you can purchase a booth to sell used tack or promote your business (horse related products and/or services). If you don’t have time to sell your items but would still like to support MWHR, you can donate horse related items (tack, riding clothes, blankets, etc) and since we are a 501c3 non-profit organization you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. For more info on purchasing a booth or making a donation, email Elizabeth at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are so excited to be chosen as one of the charities by the Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show again this year! The $20 Ride A Buck class benefiting MWHR is back again and we’ll also be doing our Tack Sale and Silent Auction. Stay tuned for lots more details to come but mark your calendars for July 6th and 7th at Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta, GA.
MWHR hosted a local Girl Scout Troop on Sunday, September 24th so that the young ladies could learn about mustangs, rescue and horse care in order to earn a new badge. Everyone had a great time and got to interact with MWHR farm residents Molly, Smoochie, Wren, Ally and Flicka. Special “thank you” to Stephanie and Valeska (our German exchange student) for helping with the horses.
On September 16th, we participated in HorseFest at Little Creek Farm in Decatur, GA. It was a beautiful day and we raised over $550 for MWHR thanks to the hard work of our volunteers (Alba and Michele), who tirelessly painted faces all afternoon. These ladies are amazing and did such a great job! Also, special thanks to Chris L. for bringing Angel out to “meet and greet” as our mustang ambassador.
MWHR would like to give a very special thank you to the Bennett family, especially Caitlyn, for supporting MWHR this past weekend at the Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show. Caitlyn and Hocus Pocus showed off their dressage skills in a demonstration on Friday evening to help create awareness about how wonderful and talented these mustangs truly are in any job.
We had an awesome time at Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show this weekend. Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing MWHR as your charity and supporting our efforts!! Ticket To Ride generously donated the proceeds from the Ride a Buck and Chicken Run Challenge classes on Friday night to MWHR.
Our mustang ambassadors, Hocus Pocus (left) and Roo (right), are getting ready for their dressage demo at the upcoming Ticket To Ride Benefit Horse Show on July 7th. In addition to the mustang demonstrations, we will be having the Tack Thing Event on Friday and a silent auction on Saturday.
We love having the young ladies from the Pope High School Homeless Pets Club out at the MWHR Farm. Last Sunday only two of their members made it to volunteer, but those young ladies got to spend lots of quality time grooming the mustangs – Midnight, Molly, Smoochie and Wren. The horses loved their spa treatments!
