Angie and Beau on the trailPotter Valley horsewoman Angie Meroshnekoff and her horse Desert Reinbeau were 2014 National Awards recipients at the recent North American Trail Ride Conference National Convention which was held in Kansas City. The team brought home the Jim Menefee Memorial Award for combined horse/horsemanship, and were the Overall Open Lightweight Horsemanship winners. NATRC is a competitive trail riding organization, which promotes safety, sportsmanship, education and trail horse advocacy in a fun, responsible family environment. NATRC rides are NOT races. In the competitions, the horses are evaluated by an approved veterinary judge, and riders are evaluated by an approved horsemanship judge. Trail safety and courtesy are key elements as is the ability to care for a horse during and after a long day in the backcountry. All breeds of horses, all disciplines and all skills and ages of riders are welcome. Children as young as 10 years old may compete. Angie was also honored with the 9000 Mile Award, and her horse Beau was second place in Lightweight Horse, High Point Mustang, 6000 Mile Award and earned his 6th National Championship! To learn more about NATRC check out their website - or view this video! Angie and Steve Meroshnekoff own White Dog Ranch, in Potter Valley, where they offer lessons, clinics and boarding, and mentor young riders in competitive trail riding, and other disciplines.

Rehoming Horses Safely is Community Business!

SAFER"Rescue" horses should really be called "displaced" horses since only a few of them are actually in bad shape. It is largely the problems of owners that are making them homeless – not faults of their own. Well – life happens to us all and it becomes a huge relief to owners to know their animals are going to a safe place and their welfare monitored. That has been the experience of SAFER Horse Rescue through the 7 years we have operated in the tri-county area of Mendocino, Lake and Sonoma counties.

But no one agency can do all the work that needs doing! That is why SAFER has designed its programs to help ANYONE take in a horse or two; fix 'em up, and get help finding that forever home. No fees involved. Or you can work with SAFER and be a foster home while SAFER pays for farrier and vet care. (more information at There is a great deal of satisfaction involved – and sometimes heartache. So if you feel the presence of equine souls you are destined to meet, please consider being the home that allows them a second chance. It doesn't last forever - but the difference you make can.

You can read their stories – adoption by adoption at or sign up for the monthly eNewsletter to hear who got homes and where – and who needs one now. Sign up is on the main page of the website SAFER runs on donations only – Please consider us in your charitable tax deductible giving. For Mendocino and Lake County concerns call Angie Herman at 707-489-0553. For website and donor questions call Kate Sullivan at 707-824-9543.

To donate to SAFER, look for the purple "Donate Now" button on the left side of the website, or mail checks to 9825 Mill Station Rd Sebastopol, CA 95472
