Our summer has been so very much fun so far. We held our first Horses-n-Harmony camp where riders learned basic riding, learned new camp songs (taught by a music therapist) and created a musical horse shoe symbol while meeting new friends.This month Happy Trails hosted a Down Syndrome Network Oregon summer party for people with down syndrome and their families. We served approximately 44 riders and their families at this event. We will have our annual ride-a-thon on August 11th.

Our classes go through November each year and in fall we will have our pumpkin carving camp and fall dance. We will also have our fall diner auction, The Black Beauty Banquet at the Oregon Golf Club on October 13th. We hope you will be able to join us!  We are currently procuring auction items and will be selling tickets soon for this event. We remain a non-profit that is primarily run by volunteers and funded by donation. We are so thankful to all of you who have helped make our programs possible.

Together we are making a difference!
