Save a Forgotten Equine (SAFE) hosts its 12th annual Benefit Horse Show on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 4-5, at Donida Farm Equestrian Center, 16600 SE 376th St., Auburn.

Presented by F5 Networks, proceeds from the two-day horse show benefit SAFE’s horse rescue program. The Redmond-based, nonprofit organization is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, retraining and adoption of neglected and abused horses.

Competitors of all ages will vie for blue ribbons in Dressage, Hunters, English and Western Pleasure, Halter, Showmanship, and Trails. Special classes for Rescued and Senior Horses celebrate the continued usefulness of horses that have been saved from at-risk situations.

Entry to the show grounds and parking are free throughout the weekend. Food and beverages are available for sale. No dogs on the grounds, please.

The public is also invited to a Saturday night party, sponsored by F5 Networks, 14 Hands Winery, and Sparkling Ice. Veraci Pizza will cater wood-fire pizza, fresh salad and a summer favorite – Sub Zero Ice Cream.

The second annual Hobby Horse Challenge, where creative riders mount stick horses and perform dressage and trail maneuvers with a dash of humor, will entertain. Broken Arrow Mounted Archers, of Arlington – a group of riders showcasing horsemanship paired with archery skills – also will perform.

Dinner tickets are $20 per person and available online at
