A Time of Giving

As the holidays approach it is time to take a moment and be thankful for all we have. We are so grateful to those who have given in the past and continue to support our clients and the program. There are many giving opportunities coming up if you are looking to share a gift or your time. And what a great holiday gift—a gift that keeps on giving! Check your mail box in mid-November for our annual appeal letter, keep your eye on Facebook as Giving Tuesday approaches on December 1st, or review the wish lists on the website.

Horse Show and Donor Appreciation Week

Riders had an opportunity to demonstrate their skills during Horse Show week while donors and other visitors had the chance to see firsthand our talented riders, dedicated volunteers and outstanding therapy animals in action.  Feedback was given to riders on the progress they have made since the beginning of the riding season and ribbons were awarded to all.
