Several of our volunteers and students attended The City of American Canyon's 18th Annual Community Recognition Ball, where SpiritHorse was recognized for our contributions to our community by providing therapeutic riding lessons, riding camps, and volunteer opportunities to so many people in and around the City of American Canyon.
Congratulations to Sean Bailey, Kris Barrow, Eileen Duff, Richard Guinane, Bruce Hurst, Heather Kapphan, Erin Nelson, Steph Peeks, Claudia Ramirez, and Haley Warnock, all of whom received a Certificate of Appreciation for all the hard work that they put in to helping SpiritHorse function. And another big congratulations goes out to the director of this program, Charlotte Dougherty, for receiving both the Organizational Award for her service to this community as well as a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for her outstanding contributions and dedication to improving the City of American Canyon!
Thank you to those who donated their time, money, and other resources so that we could put on this event. Your support helps us to be able to offer these services to those in need in our community. Check out this wonderful article by Noel Brinkerhoff of the American Canyon Eagle! We couldn't have said it any better!
Big Brothers & Big Sisters of Napa joined us for a mini day camp today! The Littles got to learn about each horse at our program, as well as the basics of grooming, roping, and leading.
We finished off the day with Leading Games. Our instructors handed the reins over to the Little's, who in turn were able to teach their Bigs about everything that they learned during the camp. The Little's introduced their Big's to their horses and instructed them on how to properly lead and care for their horses. Great Job, Cowboys and Cowgirls!
It was another busy morning out a SpiritHorse. After our morning riding sessions and interviews with Good Day Sacramento, we moved right in to our American Canyon Resource Center Foster Kid Horse Day! The kids got to learn about horse care, blacksmithing, roping, leading, and riding!
