WHTA Give Back Program





The WHTA Give Back Program was started in 2014 and was established as a service to give help and support within our community and surrounding areas. Men and women from the Walking Horse Trainers Association can be seen volunteering their time at the Bedford County Animal Shelter, at Great Strides Therapeutic Riding Program, delivering toys to schools at Christmas and distributing back packs full of school supplies.

The Walking Horse Trainers Association Give Back Program and Celebration Feeds partnered together to donate feed to aid and assist in the rehabilitation of the 55 horses rescued from Giles County. One ton of feed was donated by the WHTA and Charlie Green Stables donated a second ton of feed. The delivery of the two tons of feed was made to Volunteer Equine Advocates, a non-profit organization located in Gallatin, Tenn. Trained VEA investigators work closely with authorities to ensure that seized animals are properly cared for. Since organizing in 2003 VEA has assisted with the care, rehabilitation and adoption of over 500 horses, mules and donkeys.

The WHTA Give Back Program was happy to be able to make this donation and plans to continue to stay in touch with the VEA and give further assistance to these horses that were rescued from Giles County. If you want to make a donation to VEA visit their website www.VEATNHorseRescue.org.
