The 2023 Prairie State Classic Horse Show will benefit the Saddlebred Rescue, Inc.
It is the Mission of Saddlebred Rescue, Inc to:
Educate the public on concerns facing the saddle seat breeds.
Purchase horses from auctions or brokers that were destined for slaughter and return them to useful lives.
We want to provide a “Safety Net” so the horses that are saved are never at risk again. For example SBR works with lesson programs to do our best to evaluate the rescues to make sure they can fit into their programs.
In the course of helping the horses, we want to be a good citizen within the horse industry and to be an example for other rescue groups through our dealings with owners, trainers and instructors, breed associations, professional groups, youth groups, our supporters and volunteers.
Since being established in early 2006 Saddlebred Rescue has purchased over 2000 horses from auctions and kill buyers. These horses have been rehabbed and placed back into new homes as lesson and practice horses as well as trail and pleasure horses. We call that a success!
All proceeds from the stick horse class will be donated to the AMHA Full Circle Program. Children of all ages are welcome to participate!
Come join us on Saturday night during the evening session for our annual Chuck-A-Duck event! We will be raising funds for Saddlebred Rescue, Inc. The duck closest to the center wins half the pot of cash. The other half goes to our charity.
