For more than a dozen years, the non-profit Equine Outreach Horse Rescue has been rescuing and rehabilitating horses in Central Oregon. They recently announced they were shutting down after some financial difficulties and alleged mismanagement of funds. As of Monday, there is hope for a new future.
Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan joins us with details.
A local non-profit is hoping to place dozens of horses in new homes now that they are shuttering their operation, in the face of a year-long investigation by the Oregon Department of Justice.
As Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan reports, the board of directors for Equine Outreach Horse Rescue have decided to close their doors, and stables, for good.
Oregon’s first statewide horse rescue event is happening MAY 20-21 at Rim Rock Riders Event Center. Cyndi Dow from 3 Sisters Equine explains to Central Oregon Daily how 14 horses, 14 trainers and 7 rescued horses will showcase their talents at this family friendly event. There will be door prizes, food and a silent auction along with the horse auction. More info at oregonrescuechallenge.com.
