Horse rescue organization holds Benefit Horse Show in Auburn
Save a Forgotten Equine (SAFE) presents its fifth annual Benefit Horse Show on Saturday and Sunday at the Donida Farm Equestrian Center, 16600 SE 376th St., Auburn.
Competitors of all ages will compete in different classes, including Dressage, Hunters, English and Western Pleasure, Gaming and Trails. Fun classes include costume, leadline for kids 8 and under, Sit-A-Buck challenge and Bribe Your Horse.
Competition also features special classes open to rescued horses. There will be a number of rescued horses at the show who need permanent homes, and show-goers will have the chance to meet and interact with special equines.
Entry to the show grounds is free both days. A full slate of competition and shows begins each day at 8 a.m.
In addition to the equine competitions, the benefit show will include a dinner and silent auction on Saturday evening. Tickets are $25 per person. The silent auction features golf trips, limited edition art and jewelry, auto detailing, photography certificates, riding lesson packages and other prizes. There will be entertainment on horseback during dinner and live music by Key West musician Eric Stone afterward.
Monroe-based SAFE rescues and rehabilitates horses that have been starved, neglected or abused. SAFE provides its horses with needed veterinary care, hoof care and additional training to help ensure them a safe and productive future.
SAFE works to support animal control divisions in King, Snohomish, Pierce, Whatcom and Skagit Counties. SAFE also helps horse owners in the community who can no longer care for their animals.
SAFE is a small, nonprofit organization that relies almost entirely on public donations to fund its programs.
