Area businesses host “Giving Trees“ for Traveller’s Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary

Through the month of December, three area businesses will host Giving Trees to benefit elder horses living at Traveller’s Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary. TREES, in Spotsylvania, Virginia, promotes the humane treatment of geriatric horses through education and example.
