And if you can, help us finish our barn!
Since 1970, Roberta Bryant has devoted her life to creating a safe, accessible, and supportive environment for all members of our community to bond with horses and learn valuable life lessons.
But then in 2014, a freak fire burned one of our barns!! We've rebuilt a lot and want to finish the last few projects! At 80 years old, Bert continues to teach and mentor young riders, and spread the wellness that horse relationships provide, but we need your help.
We need to bring our barn back to its former greatness by our 50th Anniversary but we need your support!
