Trail Ride Fundraiser 

Pony Tales held it's first annual Labor Day Weekend trail ride!  It was a scenic, fun, relaxing 20+ mile trail ride on Saturday that includes a couple refreshment stops, lunch, and a break at Club 40 Tavern for the long-haul back. The evening featured dinner, music, raffles! Then hit the trail again after an amazing breakfast on Sunday for a 10  mile ride featuring Zenners and Valley Tavern.

Pure Water Days Parade

Pony Tales took part in the Pure Water Days Parade in Chippewa Falls. Then after, we had a stand at River Fest. People were welcome to come pet the ponies and horses while learning about Pony Tales. Our awesome volunteers taught kids about the horses & ponies as well as how to safely be around them!

Annual Thrift Sale

Every year, wonderful people donate items to Pony Tales so that we can hold a garage sale. We use the funds to feed and care for the rescues!

3rd annual- Trainer's Challenge
This year was again, an amazing turn out. The trainers are so talented and the horses did awesome. This year, the classes consisted of obstacle course, costume contest, clothes line race, farrier challenge, trailer loading, and free style. Almost every horse got a home! Winners this year were Logan Schwark & minis in "in hand training" and Kyle Swift with Bogey "under saddle." 

Horse and Hound-athon

This was a new fundraiser this year. It was super fun! It wasnt just for horse lovers! First was the "dog walk"  followed by a doggie obsticle course. Then the horses did a walk around town followed by a horse sized obstacle course. Even some of the rescues joined for the fun! People could receive pledges for and got a t- shirt if raised over $30. All proceeds went to Pony Tales for the care of our rescues. 

Bowling & Bingo

January 14th Bowling and Bingo was a hit! People came out to bowl a few games and enter for some of the raffle drawings in support of Pony Tales. Winter is a hard time, not many people are outside hanging with their horses in the cold. This is a great alternative! 


One Day Shelter

On October 16, 2016, the Horse Plus Humane Society hosted the first ever 1-Day Open Door Shelter for Horses in Wisconsin here at Pony Tales. 56 horses and ponies were brought to the Shelter that dayHorses of all ages, sizes, breeds and backgrounds arrived.  The ages ranged from weanling to upper 20s and 30s. There were miniature horses, registered horses, blind horses, and very sick and/or crippled horses.  Each horse was individually evaluated for quality of life by a veterinarian.
