    I am both honored and excited about hosting this worthwhile event for a group who helps our wounded warriors and their families, as well as children facing similar challenges. The service they provide is invaluable, and its nice to see how such a unique experience can help so many people.

    Keep up the “GREAT WORK”.
    I am in the process of acquiring horses for a dream of mine, working with wonded warriors and vets. Wish there was more I could do to help them at this time but just not financially able to at this time.
    These horse will have a place in the soldiers hearts to help them heal from the inside out.
    Winston Churchill once said, “the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man”. Such truth in his statement.
