Haircuts for Horses in Rutland

A Rutland hairdresser will be doing haircuts for horses today. Heidi Olson-Hilder of Avanti on Center Street will host an all-day "cut-a-thon" to raise money for Spring Hill Horse Rescue. Olson-Hilder has been trying to help the group ever since one of the stable's nonallergenic horses helped her fulfill a longstanding wish to ride a horse despite a terrible allergy. She's determined to give something of herself to the shelter. Spring hill takes in equines and either finds them new homes or cares for them permanently. The cut-a-thon is from 9 to 6 today and all the proceeds will be donated.
