2022 Octoberfest & Open House
Please Note: Due to forecasted rain, the date has changed from Saturday, October 8, to Saturday, October 15.
The fall celebration includes tours of The Horse Shelter’s facility, a rescue where New Mexico’s abandoned, abused and neglected horses are rehabilitated and cared for.
The event is geared for family fun, education and guest participation with events that include riding demos, a photo op station, and meeting and petting some amazing rescue horses. Learn about The Horse Shelter’s programs to provide a safe, healthy environment for horse rehabilitation. Get involved with our training, volunteer support and adoption programs.
Brats, veggie hotdogs, snacks and soft drinks are offered. Please join us and bring your friends and family to meet our 70+ horses for an enjoyable day at the rescue. Admission and parking are free.
