DES MOINES - The Animal Rescue League of Iowa will be celebrating National Help A Horse Day on April 22 and competing for a chance to win up to $10,000 in grant prizes to assist with their efforts to rescue and rehome horses.
The ARL will be hosting a family friendly event to share about the work of the ARL’s Kruidenier Second Chance Ranch, and are dedicating the day to rescue horses and local heroes.
Help A Horse Day is on April 22 from 1-3:30 p.m. at ARL Main (5452 NE 22nd Street, Des Moines) in the Kruidenier Second Chance Arena and barn.
The event will begin with a flag presentation by a local veterans group, a drill team performance, a horse demonstration, and there will be activities for children such as horse lassoing, a chance to groom a horse, and horse coloring activities.
Attendees will be able to tour the facilities and meet adoptable horses and the 14 horses that were recently rescued, local heroes, and ARL volunteers!
