Come out for the best event of the year:

Equine Rescue League's Open House!

Since our inception in 1990, we have hosted a biannual Open House fundraiser in May and October. We invite the community and guests of all ages to get up close and personal with many different types and sizes of horses. There are many family friendly activities as part of this weekend long event, including pet-a-pony, raffles,  bake sale, yard sale, tack sale, live music, and demonstrations by professionals in the equine industry.

The money raised during this event goes directly toward the costs to provide proper care, feed, hay, veterinary care, farrier care and training to the animals who seek shelter and rehabilitation at the Equine Rescue League. Contact us for more information!

Would you like to be a part of this event?

You can make this year's Open House a huge success by helping us in the following ways:
