Hay Day for Horses

Enterprise staff report

Mountain Valley Horse Rescue will celebrate the wonders of the equine world Saturday, Oct. 4 during its third annual Hay Day for Horses event.

The festivities get under way at 1 p.m. at 1001 Bruce Creek Road. The event offers food, music and fun for the whole family. While kids are welcome, the organizers ask that attendees leave their dogs at home.

During Hay Day, participants will also have a chance to meet rescue horses available for adoption. Inspired by the rescue of two starved horses abandoned in November 2004, a group of Eagle Valley horse enthusiasts recognized the need for a regional rescue organization. To fulfill that need Mountain Valley horse Rescue (MVHR) was formed in April 2005. MVHR is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and neglected horses and committed to reducing the number of cases involving horse abuse through community outreach and educational programs.
