GREENSBORO, NC -- This weekend and next, your whole family can 'horse around' for a good cause.

Sunday is the ASPCA's 'Help A Horse Day,' a national celebration and contest to promote awareness about the future of wild horses. The ASPCA has challenged each equine rescue and sanctuary to host an event highlighting their work and showing community members how they can get involved.

By putting on events, the rescues can enter a contest for a $25,000 ASPCA grant.

Denton-based America's Equine Sanctuary is celebrating 'Help A Horse Day' by holding a fun, interactive event in Greensboro. 'Meet A Mustang' is the theme, and guests can learn about and meet rescued mustangs and a burro, who were once wild equines roaming western NC. 

Due to rain, the Help A Horse Day will take place over two weekends at Tractor Supply Warehouse. Sunday, April 23 will be an informational session about the organization and volunteer opportunities. Next Saturday, April 29 will be the mustang meet-and-greet.
