CORRAL, a local non-profit which sponsors rescued horses and pairs them with at-risk girls, has received a leg up from both national and local equine businesses. Pennfield Feed out of Lancaster, PA and M&M Tack Shop out of Raleigh, NC have partnered to make CORRAL’s vision of giving challenged young women an opportunity to work with horses, a reality.  
 
The unique requirements for running a program like CORRAL include feeding and caring for several 1,000 lbs.
animals. Currently, CORRAL has five horses, two of which are being fostered through the Equine Rescue League.
Some of these animals eat up to 15lbs. of grain a day a, because they are such an integral part to the growth of the young women in the program, they are fed nothing but the best.  
 
Pennfield Feed has generously set up a way to sponsor the feeding needs of these equine volunteers: M&M Tack
Shop, along with other local farms and feed distributors, collect Pennfield Feed bag tags which in turn are
exchanged for the much needed grain that fuels the CORRAL program in so many ways. CORRAL wishes to reach
out to the community and ask that those who feed Pennfield grains please help us grow the community by sending your bag tags to the CORRAL Riding Academy, 3624 Kildaire Farm Rd, Cary, NC 27601.
 
Feeding your horse might be the easiest way to feed the needs of CORRAL horses and the souls of the young
women whose lives are enriched by these special animals.
 
CORRAL, which stands for Changing lives thrOugh Riding Rehabilitation and Learning is a local non-profit that
seeks to pair at-risk girls with rescued horses to promote healing, transformational growth and ultimately, lasting life change.
