VERSAILLES, Ky., Aug. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ashford Stud donates a special day adventure at their facility for 8 people with a personal visit with American Pharoah. This offer is up for "live" auction at Saddlebred Rescue's Brunch and Auction to be held at the Crowne Plaza Louisville.
Saddlebred Rescue's event in Louisville will be held beginning at 11:00 am on Thursday August 25, 2016 across from the Kentucky State Fair at the Crowne Plaza. Attend the brunch to bid or arrange for a closed bid or phone in option to participate in this opportunity. The rescue who had previously been awarded the "Heroes for Horses" Award by the United States Equestrian Federation is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. Brunch tickets are available on the website www.saddlebredrescue.com or you can contact co-chair Kathy Weems to register and arrange for a sealed bid or phone in bid by calling her at (815) 263-1811 or email email@example.com. Funding from this special offer and the many other donations to the auction will go towards continuing the legacy of the rescue which takes unwanted horses headed to slaughter and rehabs and repurposes them into new homes.
"We have rescued and saved over 1,000 horses to date and have had great success in our adoption program," notes Nealia McCracken, volunteer and head of rescue operations. Thanks to the E.L. and Thelma Gaylord Foundation's Matching Grant and all of our donors and supporters over the years we have been able to get the job done. Each horse gets individual attention and the rescue has developed an effective evaluation and placement system. Saddlebred Rescue Inc also known as American Horse Adoption works mostly with American horse breeds, the American Saddlebred and Morgan's. The rescue was originally founded in Georgia but currently operates from the McCracken's North Wind Stables facility in northwestern New Jersey. From early on the rescue has ascribed to high operating standards and is a verified member of the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries (GFAS). Over recent years the rescue, its founders with Nealia McCracken have been awarded by breed associations and groups that it serves. Nealia and others from the rescue also volunteer at the Kentucky State Fair to provide educational horse barn tours to the public. "We are now looking to the next 10 years at the rescue and only with secured financial support can we continue to do our part for the horses in need. Our event committee has been working hard on the Brunch and Auction and we need your support," asks Nealia.
