The funds are used by Hawaii Island Humane Society for feed, veterinarian care, and the improvement of equine holding facilities on Hawaii Island .

“We thank everyone who attended and supported this endeavor, especially our generous sponsors and vendors,” said event organizer Nancy Jones.  “Parker Ranch, Waimea Instant Printing, and Malama Lio deserve special recognition for their multiple contributions over the span of several months.”

Plans are already in the works for Hawaii Horse Expo 2010 and an exciting new line-up of clinicians. Buzz from this year’s event, according to Jones, has resulted in early inquiries from renowned clinicians Chris Cox, Al Dunning, Tommy Garland and Bruce Logan.

“We appreciate the passionate efforts of Nancy and so many others who volunteered their time and talent to help make this year’s Expo a success,” remarked HIHS Executive Director Donna Whitaker.

During the event held August 14-16 in Kona and Waimea, participants were offered opportunities for learning via the intimate exchange of ideas relating to equine care and training.

The Hawaii Island Humane Society’s Horse Rescue Fund was established last year to help abused and abandoned horses on the island.  For more information visit www.HawaiiHorseExpo.com or www.HIHS.org.
