Here it is. Our amazing Winter Trail of Lights has come to Christmas in July.
Come meet the equines and walk the lighted trail with family and friends. The trail is a dirt path that is about a half-mile long. There is a slight hill at the beginning.
Dates are Saturday, July 22nd and 29th from 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm. There are NO tickets to purchase in advance to enter the event.
Hay Burr Inn Equine Rescue & Sanctuary is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This is a donation-based fundraiser to help with the care and upkeep of the horses and donkeys.
Your DONATIONS are greatly appreciated for us to continue to rescue equines and give them a second chance to enjoy life and just be a horse.
Our equines are older, injured, or retired horses that were either owner surrenders or rescued from the kill pen; these are not riding horses. They are so wonderful and love attention. You can read about our rescues here on the sanctuary: https://www.hayburrinn.org/horse-profiles/.
If you are interested in helping with decorating the trail, or helping out at the event, learn about our volunteer opportunities.
