Hey there to all of you animal and horse lovers! Yeah YOU!
Next week Kayla Illies Photography will be participating in a fundraiser event that is very near and dear to my heart. May 6th in San Clemente, CA, HiCaliber Horse Rescue here in Southern California will be hosting a fundraising event, The HiCaliber Horseshoe Gala, to raise money and awareness to rescue horses weekly from slaughter. We would absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to attend and to support this AMAZING rescue!!!
Horses have ALWAYS been a huge part of my life and it breaks my heart to see people being so careless and heartless when they send their horses to auction because they’re of no use to them anymore. My grandpa first introduced me to horses when I was a little girl. My grandparents would babysit us during the week while my parents were working on the farm in Minnesota and I’d ALWAYS go outside with my Grandpa to help him with the horses. I’d help him feed them, sit on top of his belgians, and lead his stallion back and forth from his stall morning and night. At the age of five my parents gave me my first shetland pony for my birthday and I’ve never looked back. 🙂 My mom always told me I was SO stubborn when she was teaching me to ride but that was partially because the pony we later found out wasn’t trained to ride yet after I was dumped off the ponies back headfirst into a VERY large wood pole in the barn. Yup, that happened. So you can see why I was at first terrified to ride the pony. As I grew up my parents started bringing me to the small local horse shows where I’d participate in games with my horses. My family also had cattle on the farm so all year round I would help them on my horse with the cattle. One of my dreams growing up was to be able to ride my horse on the day of my wedding! That dream came true and I’m so thankful it did!!! Horses have been a blessing to me and I’m SO thankful that my Grandpa introduced them to me. They amazing animals with huge hearts and they’re great at being there for you when you need them the most!!
We need YOUR help to raise money to help save as many horses from the auctions each week as we can!!! It’s because of amazing caring people like YOU that saving them is possible!!! So if you’re able to attend the event, AWESOME!!! I can’t wait to see you there!!!
