Equine Special Olympics

The State Equine Special Olympics is a yearly equine competition event where many programs throughout the state come to show off their skills. Therapeutic riding encourages team work, improves social skills and works on independence and self confidence in unpredictable situations. These skills are brought into real life situations and used throughout the riders every day lives.

2016 Special Olympics was a BLAST! We took a group of 7 horses, 8 athletes, 14 volunteers with us. For the most part, the weather was beautiful, our horses were amazing and all of our athletes showed their best and won ribbons and medals in every class they showed in. Thank you so very much to Cherokee Feed and Seed in ball Ground, GA.  for their generous donations as well as Bronco’s Benevolent Foundation, Madsen Family, Platt Family, Gross Famil, XL Catlin, Shane Family and CNA Matching Gift Program, Mellow Mushroom and everyone who had donated and to our wonderful team who put on and donated during our Motorcycle Benefit.

As you can see, it really takes a team to get our little group to the Special Olympics every year.
