PonyUP! Gives Back to Midatlantic Horse Rescue
by PonyUP! Kentucky blogger Jennifer Goldsmith Cerra
In June, PonyUP! Kentucky donated handbags – our amazing Sable Equestrian Essentials and Devonshire Equestrian hobo bags – and sent a $500 donation to Mid Atlantic Horse Rescue.
Mid-Atlantic Horse Rescue (MAHR), based in Maryland, is a federal 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that buys slaughter bound ex-racehorses and adopts them into good homes where they can start a new life.
For 25 years, MAHR has been buying Thoroughbreds at livestock auctions, evaluating them, and starting them in new careers. Board president Ginny Suarez and executive director Beverly Strauss are lifelong horsewomen. As Graduate B and A Pony Clubbers, both women have extensive experience in eventing, dressage, showing, and foxhunting, and are licensed racehorse trainers.
Hats off to MAHR for helping horse in need!
