PER took in a miniature donkey on March 8, 2017. Zach was tethered to an electric cord and his halter rubbed him causing an infection on his neck. Very smelly! It has been scrubbed and he is on antibiotics now. Zach is a sweetheart and will be up for adoption, but there is still a custody case pending. Zach needs to be gelded, updated on vaccines, Coggins, dewormed and feet trimmed. Zach will also needs his teeth checked. Donations can be mailed in care of PER, P.O.

Our 2017 Annual Benefit Ride was a huge success! The weather was perfect and we had a great turnout. There are so many people to thank for the success of this ride. Thanks to all who participated in this event. We had 82 riders this year that rode a trail of seven challenging and fun obstacles. We had almost 40 volunteers that did a wonderful job. The judges, kitchen helpers, and pavilion team worked well together, were very professional and took extra steps to make everything perfect.
We are also grateful to the volunteers who got out there and hustled for prize donations. Special thanks to ride coordinator, Vickie Bell and also Kim Gallagher, who partnered with her on handling the obstacles. A lot goes into marking the trail, finding the perfect spot for each obstacle and getting them set up. Safety riders, Cheryl Melaven and Lori Toner, did an awesome job stepping in just in case a rider encountered problems and also making sure everyone got in safely. We did have one injury on an obstacle and Cheryl and Lori stepped in quickly to get both rider and horse back to camp. Job well done! The judges did an awesome job playing the part of different occupations, in addition to decorating their obstacle! The food was delicious! Thank you Matt Bell and Henry for grilling the hamburgers and hot dogs. Additional thanks to Donna Thompson for providing the baked beans, Smokey’s BBQ for donating the coleslaw, and Mimi McClelland and Mimi Debroux for baking the cookies. Congratulations to the winner of this year’s raffle for the Go Pro Camera Package-Pat Lienhart of Cantonment, FL.

Give us a call & schedule volunteer training, so we can get you plugged in!
Consult with your tax preparer about fostering for a non profit. If you are in the position to get write offs, this tax break would also apply to PER horses. We currently need foster homes for four. If you have space at your facility, please consider fostering. It will open up a stall for us to take in another abused or neglected horse.
