National Riding Stables Horse Rescue is inviting the public to meet some lucky horses that have been rescued from abuse, neglect, or slaughter; learn how they have healed from their unfortunate pasts; and learn how to help these and other distressed horses live a deserved life of peace and tranquility.
The Open House will be held on Saturday, October 14, 2023, from 4-7 p.m., at the National Riding Stables Horse Rescue, 610 Taneytown Road, Gettysburg, PA. (The stables are located within Artillery Ridge Campground.) Light refreshments will be available, while the horses are individually introduced to those in attendance.
“We wanted to give the public the chance to meet some of these lucky horses up close and to hear some of their remarkable stories,” said John Latschar. “We hope they will leave with a new impression of the unique personalities of these horses,” added Terry Latschar, “and the desperate need to raise funds to save, heal, and find retirement homes for horses in distress.”
National Riding Stables Horse Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation founded by John and Terry Latschar in 2018. Since that time, they have rescued and rehabilitated 42 horses and have adopted out 16 to permanent retirement homes. Currently 24 horses reside at the stables; 12 are used for guided horseback tours of the Gettysburg Battlefield and 12 are retired and waiting to be adopted by a loving family.
