Horse lovers of the Texas Panhandle, UNITE! Mark your calendars for SATURDAY AFTERNOON, because the Dove Creek Equine Rescue will be hosting their annual Meet-a-Horse Day celebration in Canyon, TX.

We had a blast this morning with Laurie Higgins-Kerley of Dove Creek Equine Rescue, talking about horses, therapy, and their upcoming festival-meets-fundraiser happening this Saturday.

From noon to 4p CT, don't miss Meet-a-Horse Day—a fun-filled day of activities for all ages, featuring live music (by Andy Chase Cundiff), live animals (like horses, burros, and tiny horses), and a lot of fabulous live humans that do great work at Dove Creek's epic ranch outside of Canyon, Texas. They've got food trucks, training demos with the horses, games, face painting, raffles, door prizes, merch for sale, and breathtaking vistas at the Tierra Blanca Creek Draw.
