AHC Membership Drive Winner Announced

(Washington, DC; September 9, 2021): In conjunction with the American Horse Council’s (AHC) Annual Membership Drive held in August 2021, AHC is delighted to congratulate Healing Arenas Inc. of Escalon, CA, the winner of a John Deere S240 Lawn Mower, valued at $2,600.00, provided by AHC partner Equine Discounts!

The announcement was made by AHC President Julie Broadway who stated “We were pleased with the great response to our membership drive which resulted in new members for AHC, United Horse Coalition, and the Equine Welfare Data Collective. Best wishes to our grand prize winner, Healing Arenas, who will be getting their new John Deere from a local dealer in their area soon.

We were both surprised and excited to receive the news from the American Horse Council that through our new membership/partnership with the United Horse Coalition we are the winner of their most recent giveaway, a JOHN DEERE lawn tractor!  Our location requires more than average maintenance due to our lucky ability to water by flood irrigation – this product will serve us very well!  We have enjoyed our JOHN DEERE tractor for many years and look forward to another great product from this manufacturer!” stated Julie Baker, President of Healing Arenas.

Healing Arenas mission is “to support emotional healing through equine interaction and provide safe and restorative homes for retired racehorses”.  They accomplish this by utilizing retired racehorses (who are retrained and rehomed) as part of their team for therapy projects.  These projects have included veterans, foster children, trafficking victims and many more.  Accredited by the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, they provide the upmost in care and administration of these wonderful horses – and with the help of the United Horse Coalition, they hope to provide even more homes for these horses in the future!  You can learn more about them here:  www.healingarenas.org.

The AHC and NTRA Equine Discounts Program (@myequinediscounts) sponsored this contest through the AHC Advantage Plan.  This plan offers significant discounts on brands including John Deere, Big Ass Fans, Sherwin Williams Paints, and Office Depot.
