My mustang, Cricket, and I want to get the word out in order to assist horse owners —
The National Equine Resource Network (NERN) is an organization dedicated to strengthening the equine welfare industry through grant funding, low-cost gelding clinics, education, business development and more. Director Shirley Puga saw the need to help the equine community and horses directly through her work for Equine Rescues and she has devoted herself to just that.
On Sunday, April 15, NERN will offer a low-cost gelding clinic at Creek Hollow Ranch, 25279 Creek Hollow Drive, Ramona. The cost is $75. You must contact NERN to obtain an application.
“The current economy has created a greater number of displaced horses, and this trend will likely continue for the next few years,” Puga stated in a news release. “By offering a low-cost gelding option to responsible owners, we can help reduce the number of new horses coming into the world during these trying times.”
Contact NERN to take advantage of this affordable offering, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, visiting their website at nationalequine.org/index.html, or writing to: National Equine Resource Network, P.O. Box 235197, Encinitas, CA 92023.
