Some families got a taste of country living at A Horse Tale Rescue’s summer fundraiser in Vaudreuil-Dorion Saturday.
The “A Day in the Country” event isn’t complete without one of the most popular activities, a hayride to see some cows. But ask any child about their favourite attraction and they will probably answer with the horses.
“I love horses,” said Ines Garrote-Fernandez. Her younger sister Lola Garrote-Fernandez agreed with “me too.”
A Horse Tale Rescue opened its facilities to the public Saturday for the first time in three years. The organization rehabilitates and rehomes horses in need of a second chance.
“They come from varying areas where the people can no longer afford (to keep them or may have a) change in lifestyle or some injuries. But we also have five that have come from Montreal’s calèche industry,” said A Horse Tale Rescue Executive Director, Mike Grenier.
