LEXINGTON, KY. – The Horse Radio Network (HRN) has announced the creation of Horse World Gives Back (www.horseworldgivesback.com); a charitable initiative aimed at uniting the horse world in a fund raising drive that will benefit horses and horse owners affected by the recent flooding and tornadoes across the United States.

HRN will host a 3 hour LIVE broadcast on June 6, 2011, 6-9 pm Eastern as a fund raising effort called the Horse World Gives Back Radiothon (www.horseworldgivesback.com/radiothon) followed by a Horse World Gives Back Retail Day (www.horseworldgivesback.com/retail-day/) on June 7, 2011. Participating retailers will give back 5% of the day’s sales to the charities that will direct the funds towards helping horse owners across the country whose horses have been affected by the devastating weather damage.

This relief aid is being channeled through the US Equine Disaster Relief Fund (www.kentuckyhorse.org) and the Red Cross (www.redcross.org). HRN and its media partners are reaching out to equestrian and equine related organizations to become involved and unite the horse world in this nationwide effort.
