Saddle up with Horse Haven for Rideathon / Walkathon

Horse lovers from across the country are getting ready for the first ever national effort to benefit charities helping horses. Eighty charities from more than 35 states have signed on to run a rideathon/walkathon to help raise funds and awareness for neglected, abused and unwanted horses in the National Rescue Ride on October 18. Horse Haven of Tennessee is one of them.

Similar to a walkathon, the NRR will bring together thousands of riders and walkers across the country to help make a difference.

Riders and walkers interested in joining the effort can go to www.Nationalrescueride.org to register and choose Horse Haven of Tennessee as the charity to ride/walk with. The ride/walk is being held at Lovingood Springs Farm - 3203 Miser Station Road, Louisville, TN at 10 a.m. They can print their sponsorship/pledge form and start signing on friends and family to support their effort in the ride. All funds will go to the charity but the free T-shirt will go to the rider/walker. There are prizes for raising the most funds as individuals, or if they ride with a club.

On Saturday, Oct. 18, in the saddle or in your sneakers, join Horse Haven of Tennessee to help unwanted horses by being a part of the National Rescue Ride!
