It was a night of celebration for one local organization and the turnout was tremendous. Hope on Horseback Volunteer & Rider Awards Dinner were being held tonight at The Beechwood Golf Club. Riders who participated in the 2017 season were given certificates and gifts. Volunteers were being honored for the hours of service that they have donated to make sure riders have a safe and fun experience.
We spoke with Program Director Kimberly Danylko who told us that the organizations helps people with special needs to learn horseback. She says volunteers are a crucial part of this club and wanted to express her gratitude.
Since 1981, Hope on Horseback has offered Equine therapy classes which helps the physical mental, emotional and social well-being of individuals with special needs.
