Thank You Knights of Columbus!
Thank you to The Knights of Columbus St. John Paul II Council 16492 for a second year of support! They visited the ranch and presented a $2,000 check made possible by its Citizens With Disabilities Campaign. We are thrilled our rider, Caleb, his mom, Erica Shearn, and his grandparents, Bill and Li Smith (first photo), helped raise money through their annual Tootsie Pop fundraiser for the campaign.

Welcome New Board Members!
As a small nonprofit in its infancy, we rely heavily on volunteers to make our work possible. Some of our most dedicated and passionate team members are our Board of Directors.
Please extend a warm welcome to four talented new board members: Kammy Davis, Noelle NesSmith, Susan Hightower, and Alysia Morris. They joined the team with a 3-year commitment to help advance our mission to build a special community through riding, recreation, and respite.
Summer Fun Wrap up
With summer riding season coming to a close, we wrapped up our second year of serving our community! A little on the warm side, but it was a blast working with several new riders and volunteers! We were thrilled to have not only a visit from The Knights but also the Ponte Vedra Women's Civic Alliance.
In July, we enjoyed our monthly Movie Outing to see Thor: Love and Thunder with friends in our own private, no-hush zone auditorium. Moms Roundup at Mickler's Beach was a great time to take a break, relax and catch up!
Check below for this month's Movie Outing and Open House on the ranch! The Open House is a great time to come tour the ranch and brush the horses. It's also a great opportunity for volunteers and parents to visit to have time to relax, chat, and get to know their fellow volunteers and rider families better. Next Moms Roundup is Friday, 9/2, 11am-2pm. See below for more info!
If your family is starting back to school in the next couple weeks, we hope it is a smooth transition and we look forward to our Fall Adaptive Riding Season starting in September.
