Laughing Pony Rescue to celebrate ASPCA Help A Horse Day in Rancho Santa Fe


Laughing Pony Rescue will be taking part in the national celebration of The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ Help A Horse Day on April 26 and competing for a chance to win up to $10,000 in grant prizes to help protect horses. To celebrate the day, Laughing Pony Rescue will open its ranch to families and friends. Pony rides will be offered along with horse-related crafts and games. Learn about the rescue horses and what you can do to help.

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.

The event is from 12:30-3 p.m. April 26 near the Bridges in Rancho Santa Fe. Address will be sent upon registration. Reserve to To register, go to
