What if every time you rode through the gate, you were helping someone in need? What if every time someone applauded you, you knew they were applauding your compassion?
Now, junior exhibitor proformance riders and drivers can compete with a new reason in mind: raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or their selected charity.
It’s a shared-commitment program that encourages riders to show an American Saddlebred, Arabian (including Half-Arabian), Morgan, National Show Horse or Hackney Pony in competitions, and encourages donors to pledge funds for charity for each class in which the rider shows. The rider is not only responsible for raising the donations, but for performing community service as part of his or her own contribution to the effort.
