ALPINE–Horses of Tir Na Nog will host a free open house to celebrate Horses and Their Heroes this Sunday at Rancho Samataguma, near Alpine.
Visitors to the family-friendly 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. event will have an opportunity to meet the horses that call the sanctuary home and to learn about their individual rescue stories and provide salt block for horses for good health. First responders, including CAL FIRE, County of San Diego Department of Animal Services, and U.S. Border Patrol have been invited to share the heroic work to the public.
“In addition to local first responders, the San Diego community that supports our efforts on an on-going basis are heroes to our horses every day,” explained Amy Pat Rigney, Administrator of Horses of Tir Na Nog. “This is a once a year opportunity for San Diegans to visit the ranch and see the difference they are making in the lives of so many horses, including our mustang herd.
Horses of Tir Na Nog is the longest-operating equine sanctuary in San Diego county and is currently caring for over 90 equines, including a herd of thirty mustangs. And if you want to buy a horse you can do that so much easier now as there are many great places online with horses for sale so that you can browse them all and find the ideal match.
