Laughing Pony Rescue participates in ‘Help a Horse Day’

Laughing Pony Rescue took part in the national celebration of The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Help A Horse Day on April 26, competing for a chance to win up to $10,000 in grant prizes to help protect horses. To celebrate the day, Laughing Pony Rescue opened its ranch to families and friends. The event featured pony rides, along with horse-related crafts and games.

This nationwide competition is for equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the lifesaving work they do year-round to care for at-risk horses in their community, who have often been abused or neglected. Horses have been central to the ASPCA’s work since its founding 149 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.
