Warm days and cool nights means fall is here and so is the ninth annual Chili Cook-Off and Presentation of Adoptable Horses at Heavenly Horse Haven. Nestled in the hills of the historical Terwilliger Valley area of Anza, HHH’s mission is to help meet the need for a “safe haven” for horses or other farm animals who are at risk, neglected, abused, unwanted, in need of special care or are too expensive to keep.
This event is a fundraiser as well as a way for HHH to let residents and visitors know what they are all about. The event will take place Saturday, Oct. 22, from noon until 4 p.m.
Heavenly Horse Haven is a premier horse and animal rescue. It has always been HHH’s policy to rehabilitate or retrain, when appropriate, before putting horses up for adoption. This way they are ready to be good family members in their new forever homes. HHH uses non-force natural horse training methods, which have proven to be a successful method for years.
Over time HHH has partnership with other horse lovers, training stables, special trainers and other rescue organizations. Lately, they have been partnering up with Miracle Ranch Equine Therapy located in Garner Valley whose clinical doctor, Dr. Gaedt and staff uses horses and other animals such as alpacas, to heal the hearts and minds of men, women and children. This partnership has produced some amazing stories of healing between man and beast. Some of these miracles of the healing between animals and humans will be shared in presentations throughout the day.
All the hard work of all those who worked with HHH horses will be on display throughout the day as well during the presentations of adoption horses. This has led to the event’s theme founder Gina Perrin has chosen “There Can Be Miracles If You Believe.”
The Chili Cook-off has become a HHH tradition. Everyone loves to eat, dress up and have fun so a Chili Cook-Off on a fall day is a great jump-start toward that goal. It’s also an opportunity to show off your culinary skills, so bring your favorite chili recipe, pick of theme and dress the part and show off what you got!
There will be games fun and prizes, vendors of all kinds, and all sorts of rescued animals to play with. So bring your friend’s family and do not forget your camera and plan to have a memorable time in the country at Heavenly Horse Haven.
