Project Report | Dec 3, 2015
Support exceeds expectations--generates family time for veterans

Our original goal of raising $5,000.00 was achieved within only three days of the Global Giving challenge begun this spring. The success of this project is reflected in the fact that we served 23 Veterans in the program by August 30th. Your generous outpouring of support allowed us to expand our original goal to $10,00.00 and now that this is nearly reached, expand our services to Uniformed Professionals in our community.  Ride UP for Uniformed Professionals (Veterans, Active Duty Service Members, and First Responders---Fire, Police, EMT's) is letting us give back to those who give so much of themselves every working day.

To date, we have served 66 Veterans and First Responders with equine interventions geared to individual interests.  English riding, Western riding, ground work, and horse training methods have all been offered to both Veterans and their family members. 

We pledge to continue to offer all our  Ride UP participants quality horse interactions free of charge.  You have made this possible.  I cannot thank you, and Global Giving enough for the opportunity to expand our program offerings this year!

Family members have included wives and children as we find ways for horses to foster closer connections between family members.  You made it happen!
