What makes therapeutic riding “so special?”
The bonding between horse and rider and the relationship with instructors and volunteers has been known to help improve self esteem, self confidence and social interaction.
For the physically handicapped rider, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves their body mimicking the human gait.
Studies have shown that therapeutic riding provides the following benefits:
• Psychological bonding
• Lifting of the spirit
• Increased attention span
• Improve balance, posture and flexibility

Our New Well Is “Doing Well,” (thanks to donations so far).
It’s doing its job, keeping the dust down in the arenas. Total cost was around $6,000, but we’re still short $1,700. Got any ideas how we can raise the rest? We can use them. Please put your thinking caps on for us.
Every little bit helps! Thank you for donating and getting the word out!
