Audrey and Neal Reynolds of nonprofit Saving Horses, Inc. (SHI) invite the community to the 5th Annual Wine & Beer Tasting Gala extravaganza benefiting SHI, held at their Encinitas home on Sept. 21 from 6 to 10 p.m. The event will feature locally produced wine and beer, live music, a silent auction, and food from local restaurants.

Founded in 2007, SHI has saved over 150 horses from slaughter, abuse, and neglect. Many have been rehabilitated and re-homed, while the un-adoptable horses remain in the sanctuary program. Many have special needs and vet bills are high. The horses give back by way of the equine assisted therapy program and a therapeutic riding program for children with special needs.

You may reserve your space at the gala by prepaying the $50 donation via PayPal at audrey@savinghorsesinc.com. For more information visit www.savinghorsesinc.com.
