Denny Chapman to headline Holiday with Horses!

This event benefits the Marion Country Therepeutic Riding program, as well as "Horse for Heros" - a nationwide program for wounded veterans sponsored by NARHA, North American Riding for the Handicapped Assoc. This exciting new program came to our area in 2007 when a pilot project for 5 veterans, amputees or brain injured, from Iraq and 2 other wars, climbed aboard horses at the Marion Therapeutic Riding Association. Needless to say, this was a day of bottomless fun, as well as therapy to improve the vets’ balance, coordination, and emotional well-being. This new program supplements services offered on a regular basis to children, stroke victims, and others deemed to benefit. We'll be headlining the event with some singing and a specialty act not to be missed!
