THHIN – Trainers Helping Horses in Need
Chapter 14 of the United Professional Horsemen’s Association (UPHA) established the THHIN Fund to facilitate the rescue of horses in dire need.
The Fund offers grants to qualified rescue organizations that provide a better home to horses in need, helping them to find a safe and healthy life.
Fundraising Entertainment Idea
The development of the THHIN fund motivated the Board members to find creative ways to make a unique and memorable impact while drawing attention to this charitable cause. In recent years, they’ve started adding fundraising entertainment to the THHIN dinner event.
The UPHA hosted a Stage Hypnotist at their Horse Show event over 20 years ago, and the performance is STILL fondly remembered by those members who were present at that event! The Committee did a search of modern day Hypnotist Entertainers, and finally reached out to me because they thought I would be ideal for this event.
The ticketed event included dinner, drinks, and an interactive, Clean Comedy Hypnosis Show. The “packed house” audience included all ages, and an extremely fun group of people.

The audience was more than WOWED. Their jaws hurt.
The volunteers had a great time. They were still ready to party after the show. The rest of us were exhausted from laughing. The next day they were still talking about your show. I’ve had a million emails congratulating ME on YOUR great performance (I humbly accept them all).
It was my idea to invite you to our venue. (Actually, Rich selected you from a number of candidates). Several of my committee members were a bit skeptical. (A Hypnotist??? What the f…??!!) We got a lot of that in the process of promoting and selling tickets.
The fact that your performance delivered beyond any of our expectations was so wonderful that the fund raising part of my job was easy. People were thanking me and shoving money into my hand THE NEXT DAY.
…the money we raised from ticket sales goes to equine rescues that help abused and neglected horses. Your fantastic performance makes it easy to get people to donate. You’re style and tenor was perfect for our crowd.
Every single person enjoyed it. With this group, that’s virtually impossible. You did it!
This was a 100% success.
