Helping to save and rehabilitate horses and seeing Jack Ingram in concert at the same time? Where do we buy tickets?
Ingram, 2018 Country Music Song of the Year winner, and rising star Julia Hatfield will take the stage at the seventh annual Habitat for Horses fundraiser event on Wednesday, September 26, at 4 Star Concert Hall & SideBar in Brenham, Texas.
Habitat for Horses is a 501-3c nonprofit that promotes and secures the safety, well-being, and health of horses and establishes connections with humans who can benefit emotionally from involvement with horses.
“There are few things more rewarding than watching a previously neglected animal go to a loving home. Habitat for Horses helps move these horses into homes where they are cared for, fed, loved on, and appreciated. Not only does it benefit the animal, but it changes the life of every member of the family,” says Ginger Barber, Houston interior designer and vice-president of the nonprofit.
“Being around horses provides a refuge. They are calm, strong, and majestic creatures that deserve to be treated with love and respect. The work that Habitat for Horses is doing is critical. It is so important to take care of the equestrian population.”
Barber, who has been a fixture on the H-Town design scene doing interiors for Houstonians’ homes and second homes since opening her studio 40 years ago, says she derives a lot of her design inspiration from horses: “They are such strong, stunning creatures. They are natural, graceful, and serene, and their beauty is bold, never overstated or flashy. Those are elements and characteristics I try to incorporate in all of my projects.”
Tickets to the seventh annual Habitat for Horses fundraiser start at $125 (sponsorships go up to $10,000); certain prices include open bar, light bites, and access to the Jack Ingram meet and greet. Evening activities also include a live auction — getaway trips such as a Nantucket escape and a Cabo retreat are among the goodies — benefiting equine rescue efforts.
