Rags to Riches: Brittany and Chestnut

Rags to Riches: Brittany and Chestnut

Hooray for Brittany and Chestnut! As part of the Rags to Riches contest this weekend at the Equine Extravaganza in Richmond, 8-year old Brittany Bostic and her horse, Chestnut, will perform before judges. When the Bostic family bought Chestnut she had lost 250 pounds from neglect and underfeeding. Thanks to some TLC, Chestnut is gaining weight and rebuilding her confidence.

Rags to Riches honors horses owners, like the Bostic family, who have rescued abused or neglected equines. The contest also raises awareness of horse adoption.

Equine Extravaganza, East Coast horse expo, will be held Friday, November 2 – Sunday, November 4, 2012 at the Richmond International Raceway (old State Fairgrounds). Shows, clinics, pageantry, and exhibits! Tickets are $15 at the door. Check out the full schedule of events.
