We Need Safe Horses for the Special Olympics!

The Special Olympics World Games Equestrian Competition will be held at the LA Equestrian Center this summer, from July 25 – August 2, 2015.  Ride On has been selected to manage the event this coming July. This wonderful organization, Ride On, teaches adaptive horseback riding to children and adults with physical and cognitive disabilities and provides physical, occupational and speech therapy specializing in using the movement of  the horse to improve specific medical conditions

One of the big challenges that comes along with this honor is to find 80 safe, appropriate horses. They will need to find, identify, and match appropriate horses with 140 athletes from 27 countries!

So we’d like to ask you to help out…Lend a Hand, Lend a Horse!

Below is a flyer for you with details on the event, what it entails and how you can help.
