Free Rugged Lark Pin with Donation to America's Horse Cares
American Quarter Horse Foundation
The American Quarter Horse Foundation presents an exciting offer that commemorates the late, great Rugged Lark while supporting a great new program. The Foundation is offering a free limited-edition Rugged Lark pin with your online donation of $10 or more to America’s Horse Cares, specified in memory of Rugged Lark.
The pins, which commemorate the late stallion’s farewell tour in 1997, are a great way to show your support of America’s Horse Cares and the two-time Superhorse Rugged Lark, who was one of the most versatile American Quarter Horses the world has known.
America’s Horse Cares supports therapeutic riding endeavors with the help of generous donations. In 2006, America’s Horse Cares will begin granting funds to therapeutic riding organizations and individuals who meet certain criteria and who have completed a grant application.
“Lark,” who was euthanized in October, 2004, serves as the poster boy for America’s Horse Cares.
Lark’s owner, Carol Harris of Bo-Bett Farms in Reddick, Florida, established the Rugged Lark Memorial Fund in memory of Rugged Lark, to be directed to America’s Horse Cares.
“I feel strongly that this is where Lark’s legacy belongs – with those who believe and dare to trust,” Harris said. “Therapeutic riding certainly involves trust. Lark especially loved to be around children and seemed to have an uncanny appreciation and concern for those who were disabled.”
Don’t delay on this special online offer – there are only 1,400 Rugged Lark pins, and they are going fast! Show your support of America’s Horse Cares today with an online donation in memory of Rugged Lark of $10 or more, and receive your free Rugged Lark pin!
Please specify your donation in memory of Rugged Lark.
“Nobody realizes how much therapeutic riding does for disabled people unless they’re involved in it,” Harris said. “Therapeutic riding has such unlimited possibilities for people. When you put them on a horse, they feel that they’re no longer disabled or limited.”
