Shadow, our 6 year old lab, began training in August 2016. He is a Registered Therapy Dog and a Canine Good Citizen with The American Kennel Club. He is now currently helping and encouraging children to read at our local library on Tuesday's. The children and adults love him. It's so exciting to see the children's reading confidence grow each week, as well as their love for reading!
We are so excited to see the growth in our ministry as our programs and services are expanding, and we're looking forward to the day when the indoor riding arena is built! We've run into a few delays, but we also know when it's time, it will be built! We appreciate your prayers and monetary contributions in support of our equine program and the services we provide to those in our community, and central Ohio.
We are here to support our community, our youth and their families, in many ways! We love to support other community events, and we currently have teams organized to support the American Cancer Society Relay For Life and the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio Buddy Walk. Did you know, you can submit a confidential prayer request from the bottom tool bar? We would love to pray for you! Our group equine programs began several years ago with some of the groups listed, and we are currently offering our group equine programs for our Veterans and their families/military families, Easter Seals, the Department of Aging, children with alopecia areata and their families, terminally ill children, those with cancer/survivors, preschool/early elementary age children, special need preschools, homeschool groups, children's church groups, and our senior citizens. If you would be interested in becoming an Event Sponsor for a group, please contact us! Helping those in our community. Individuals and community groups helping one another. That's how it should be! We need YOU! There are many individuals and families that need our help and support right now. Don't wait, contact us today and let's do this! TOGETHER, we CAN make a difference in the lives of others!
The extreme heat & humidity, intense sun, and the thunderstorms we experienced in July and August last year made it nearly impossible to conduct our equine riding programs that are held in the outdoor riding arena. With record rainfall in November this year, almost every riding session that was scheduled was cancelled or rescheduled a second time due to the rain. Last winter, our cold winter days with wind chills below zero, freezing rain, snow and ice make our need for the indoor riding arena just as great. After 12 years at this location, we have found our need for an indoor riding arena has now become a necessity. This facility would allow us to offer services year round, provide a safe environment for daily exercise for the health and training of the horses, and provide a much needed enclosed facility so we could resume and build our Double Blessings Community Outreach Program. Our Double Blessings program has provided clothing, housewares, personal care items, groceries, school supplies, Christmas gifts and monetary support to individuals and families in need. An annual family celebration will be planned and held in the indoor riding arena once it's completed, showcasing the children as we celebrate together their growth and the challenges they have overcome the past year! We are a non-profit 501(C)3 Corporation and we need your help to locate private and/or corporate sponsors. If you, your company, or someone you know would like to be a part of this exciting outreach, please let us know! The future plans for private or corporate sponsors that assist in the building of the indoor riding arena include the placement of a family or corporate banner that they provide in the facility, recognition on the website and Facebook, and an invitation to attend the annual family celebration.
