It is an opportunity for members of the public to meet our amazing horses and to see first-hand what we do at HEROS to create bright futures for our horses and students. The valuable and generous support of partners and sponsors allow us to put these fantastic events on and I would like to thank Valley Equine Hospitality for their support of HEROS National Racehorse Week Open Day.’
