Thank you for helping to support Happy Trails Riding Center! We’d like to let you know some of the great things we were able to accomplished in 2013 because of your support.

In 2013, we grew our staff and added an instructor, Ellen Van Nood. Our classes were offered for the first time all year long.

We provided approximately 300 total horse experiences (serving approximately 45 children and 24 adults) we held our summer and fall camps, created a new class to help people build confidence and trust through equine assisted learning, held our ride-a-thon, movie night, fall dance with the City of West Linn Parks(approximately 50 people attended) and holiday party in December. We started a new fundraiser, “Cowboy Casino”and hosted a fall party for Candle lighters (for children with cancer - 75 people total people, 23 children rode horses).  

But more important than the numbers of things we did is that we continue to make a difference in the lives of people with disabilities and special needs. We are making a difference
and are so very thankful to all of our donors, volunteers and of course our horses that are helping make riding and social opportunities available to people with disabilities and special needs.

We have a great year planned for our participants and would like to invite you to contact us and come out and see the good work happening in action. We also invite you to our ,"Cowboy Casino" Fundraiser on Saturday, July 26th at Happy Trails Riding Center.

We hope you will partner with us again to make our programs possible.
