Laughing Pony Rescue held its 1st Annual Help a Horse Day on April 26 in conjunction with the ASPCA’s National Horse Day. The organization aimed to help educate the community on horse rescues by opening the ranch to the public. They provided pony rides, crafts, demonstrations, and tours of the facility. With roughly 50 people in attendance, the rescue received a cumulative donation of $1500. The proceeds would go toward feeding the ponies for the next few weeks.

This event made Laughing Pony eligible to win a grant from the ASPCA for up to $10,000. The ASPCA created Help a Horse Day in 2013 in order to provide a national day of recognition for organizations that help horses. The day is meant to help spread the word about the lifesaving work they do on behalf horses in need. To learn more about Laughing Pony Rescue and the work they do visit www.laughingponyrescue.com.
