Ride With Pride Open Horse Show

Ride With Pride, Augusta County’s therapeutic horsemanship program will be holding an Open Horse Show on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at Cedar Creek Stables in Staunton. Equitation, hunter, jumper, trail, and game classes will be judged by Judy Bonin. $8 per class, $5 per game/trail class. Concession stand will be available. Rain or shine show begins at 8:30 a.m. Negative coggins test required for each horse competing.

All proceeds will go to support Ride With Pride’s therapeutic riding program. Ride With Pride has 21 years serving children and adults with special needs through a therapeutic horsemanship riding program. For the physically challenged, riding provides the gentle motion, rotations, and balance they cannot perform themselves. This gives the rider a sense of body control, strength, and flexibility. For the emotionally and learning challenged child or adult the programs offer opportunities for providing daily care of the horses which fosters responsibility, self-esteem and trust.
