Right Horses, Bright Futures: A New Horse Adoption Initiative from Trafalgar Square Books and The Right Horse
NEW YORK – Trafalgar Square Books (www.HorseandRiderBooks.com) is excited to announce our partnership with the ASPCA®’s Right Horse Initiative to establish Right Horses, Bright Futures—a program to help secure new beginnings for very special horses in need of new homes. TSB will sponsor each “Right Horses, Bright Futures Horse” until he or she is adopted, offering scholarships to cover care and public updates to our readers and followers in an effort to help locate the right person or family for each equine in transition.
“Trafalgar Square Books is a valued Right Horse Industry Partner. Their support of The Right Horse Adoption Partners is a great example of how the equine industry is committed to helping horses in transition,” said Christie Schulte Kappert, program director of The Right Horse Initiative. “We are grateful to Trafalgar Square Books for their efforts to spread the word about equine adoption.”
Our first two Right Horses, Bright Futures horses will come from Right Horse Adoption Partners Longmeadow Rescue Ranch in Union, Missouri, and Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna, Ohio. The sponsorship will focus on spotlighting longer-term equine residents or horses with additional needs at the two facilities.
In the coming weeks, TSB will share the stories of our first sponsored horses. Follow us on our blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to see if one of them can have a bright future with you or someone you know!
