NEW RECORD!! 28 RIDERS FOR THE HORSE SHOW
What happens when you move an established event up by 2 weeks? Well, we weren’t sure but as of the end of August we had already surpassed last year’s total number of riders! By show day, 28 riders, a new record, showed up to compete on the crisp fall day with their families and friends there to cheer them on!
This day isn’t only about the winners, it’s about showing off the skills learned throughout the year. It was great to see how much our riders have progressed and competed in more advanced classes this year. And we were excited to see so many new faces! Even the judge took note of how much the riders have progressed since she saw them last year.
The annual horse show is also about supporting Mane Stream’s Adaptive Riding program. The numerous sponsors and riders contributed almost $8,000!! A special thanks to top fundraising riders Mary Glaser in the adult category, raising $1,000 and Madison Mitchell in the junior category with over $350.
Our sincere thanks go out to our generous sponsors, dedicated volunteers and everyone else who made the day such a success. Let's not forget our Judge, Kathy Dermody and talented photographer Michelle Geise! (HORSE SHOW GALLERY to coming soon)
