The Chinese Year of the Horse began on January 31, 2014 and we plan to make it memorable. We intend to “Raise the Roof” by raising funds to build a covered riding facility. This will allow us to serve even more adults and children with physical disabilities or developmental disabilities, such as Autism. It will include a large covered arena with attached 10-stall barn and multi-purpose room, where students can gather in a dry place before lessons and their parents and guardians can watch their lessons.
“Raise the Roof” was intentionally chosen as the theme for this capital fund raising campaign to invoke the memory, images, and experiences of an old-fashioned barn-raising; since that is exactly what it will be. In raising funds from a mix of individuals, corporate sources, and philanthropic foundations; we will bring the community and region together to raise a roof so that the many people who depend on the structure of a scheduled weekly session can count on it – rain or shine.
If you or someone you know can help support this worthwhile project, with time or treasure, please contact us.
