The Equestrian Club of Bridgewater College will host the 12th annual Horses’ Christmas at the Bridgewater College Equestrian Center in Weyers Cave, on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 1 p.m.

bridgewaterThe Bridgewater College Equestrian Center is located off of U.S. 11 on Burketown Road, between Weyers Cave and Mount Crawford.

This year’s theme is “A Superhero Christmas.” All elementary and pre-school students in the community and their families are invited to the presentation, which will feature horses dressed in seasonal garb and skits that are focused on superhero characters, such as Batman.

At the conclusion of the program, Santa and Mrs. Claus will make a special appearance on horseback.

Jerry Schurink, Bridgewater College’s director of riding of the Bridgewater College Equestrian Center, will narrate the events. Awards will be presented to the best costumed entries. Kids will be allowed to reward the horses with a tasty treat following the competition.

“This event provides an excellent outreach opportunity for the Equestrian Club and a fun activity for children in the local community,” said Schurink.

In lieu of an admission charge, the Equestrian Club requests donations of canned goods for the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. The 11th annual “Horses’ Christmas” received more than 600 pounds of canned food for the food bank, and the club hopes to exceed that amount this year. For further information, call Beth R. Boteler, assistant to the director of riding and equine minor/riding club adviser, at (540) 223-2437.
