August 26, 2017 I was so blessed to be able to attend Heart of the West fundraiser at Carousel Ranch. Now for those of you who do not know about Carousel Ranch, let me tell you about this amazing place!
Carousel Ranch is a ranch for children and young adults with special needs. These amazing children and young adults are able to do therapy on horseback for various reasons. Some are needing to stretch their bodies, others are needing to get strength. "At Carousel Ranch, equestrian therapy takes our students into a new, unexplored world, and provides a sense of independence and freedom that defies their disability. Exercises performed on the back of the horse challenge our riders in ways that they have seldom been challenged before." This is an amazing organization and I encourage all of you to check out their website.
During the event there were so much to learn and see! They had a silent auction, demonstration with riders and the horses, meet and greet with horses, food, drinks, live auction and more! Over $125,000 was raised that night for this amazing organization!
