April’s Charming Challenge: “Pay It Forward….and Back!”

Apr 1, 2022

April 28th is “Pay It Forward Day” and to celebrate we’re encouraging you to Pay it Forward and Back!

Some ideas for Paying it Forward:
-Invite a friend (or their child) to the barn to meet your Haflinger, help you feed, pick a hoof, and maybe have a pony ride.
-Make a donation to a horse club (4-H) charity, or rescue
-Invite Scouts for a ranch tour
-Donate horse magazines or books to a Mom’s Club

Some ideas for Paying it Backward:
-Thank you notes/calls/lunch with former or current trainers/teachers, vet, farrier, feed store delivery guy, saddle fitter, horse mentor. Basically, taking the time (and not just a text!) to thank the people who make it all possible… a trip down gratitude lane.

What you do is up to you! Share two ways you paid it forward and two ways you paid backward to earn your charm!
