Ramsey Chrysler and Jeep Sponsor of Equine Rescue

The horse was the backbone of American culture, expansion and mobility. The horse’s shear power, strength, and endurance is the inspiration behind automotive technology used to this day. For all that they have done for us we owe them the opportunity for a happy healthy life. That is why Ramsey Chrysler Jeep is proud and honored to support the Equine Rescue and all that they do.
