Let's Saddle Up Therapeutic Horsemanship has 2 programs going on now. Therapeutic riding for children, and Silver Stirrups Program for adults over the age of 50. But we wanted to do more so we are Starting a new program on Nov 16th. It is for Active Military and Veterans. Our Veteran Program will be called Let's Saddle Up Eagles. Our celebration that day will start at 2pm with a Flag Ceremony, BBQ plates for sale for $10, door prizes, and we are having a small horse show that day too.
Everyone wonders about the cost of a program like this. Our lesson program is 6 weeks long with one lesson a week. The cost is $180. Our Veterans' have given enough so the cost for our Veteran's is (0) but we still have to feed horses and pay our instructors. So with donations from individuals and churches and fundraiser's we collect the funds we need.
What we need is people to help us keep these Veteran's participating in this program.
