The Ride4SPIRIT event is a presentation and fundraiser that honors the accomplishments of therapeutic riding and learning programs with horses in the community. This free public presentation showcases success stories about the healing power of horses, celebrates abilities and victories over disabilities, and shares the enjoyment of life skills learned through interactions with horses. Ride4 SPIRIT is more than a horse show, it is a celebration of pride, accomplishment, dignity, independence and self-esteem through interactions and activities with our horses.
