Huntington Beach, CA, January 26, 2011 – National Equine Resource Network (NERN) is launching its Gelding Program by hosting a low cost clinic on Saturday, February 26, 2010, in partnership with Red Bucket Equine Rescue, at the beautiful Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center.
Red Bucket Equine Rescue (RBER) is a compassionate 50-plus horse rescue founded in January 2009 by David and Susan Peirce. They were joined by fellow founder Mary Behrens, owner of the Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center. Their mission statement is “To save and rehabilitate horses, restore their trust in humankind and find them safe, loving and permanent adoptive homes.”
This collaboration between National Equine Resource Network, Red Bucket Equine Rescue, Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center, and local veterinarians Jenn Winnick and Silvia Colladay, aims to bring affordable castration services to horse owners in the local community. Details for this clinic can be found below.
Date: Saturday, February 26, 2011
Time: 7:00 am (horse drop off)
Location: 18381 Goldenwest Street, Huntington Beach, CA 92648
Contact: Shirley Puga email@example.com or 760-419-2462
Stallions must be halter broke, in good health, and have two descended testicles. Colts must be at least 4 months old. Vaccination records are required.
NERN’s flagship program was created to help economically challenged horse owners castrate their colts and stallions at a minimum cost, and to decrease equine breeding at a time when there is an over abundance of horses in the United States. Going forward, NERN anticipates holding 7-8 additional gelding clinics throughout California in 2011, and plans to expand the program throughout the US in 2012.
NERN, a nonprofit organization itself, is accepting donations from the public to help defray the costs of these clinics, each of which are expected to geld between 10 and 20 horses.
Donations can be made through the organization’s website at http://www.nationalequine.org.
