EUGENE, Ore. -- A Eugene nonprofit hosted event on Saturday to showcase rescue horses.

Oregon Horse Rescue is an equine rescue and sanctuary that provides medical care, long-term shelter and adoptive placement for at-risk equines throughout Lane County and the state of Oregon.

They held a family-friendly outdoor event at their rescue facility (28364 Crow Road in west Eugene) from noon to 4:00 p.m.

Organizers said this event supports their effort to engage more people in their work in helping abandoned, neglected and abused horses. They also showcased adoptable rescue horses with hopes of placing them with loving families

Visitors met the horses while enjoying live music and engaging activities, like painting horse shoes and testing their knowledge with equine welfare trivia. There was also a tack sale and a silent auction featuring local art and hand-made artisan crafts, among other things.

All the proceeds from the event will support the organization's efforts to care for at-risk horses.
