More than just a ride, the Hoofin’ It for High Horses fundraising event returns to South Woodstock this fall!
Hoofin’ It for High Horses is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for our therapeutic riding program. The event features a 7-9 mile trail ride and a 3-7 mile foot-walk through the spectacular Vermont countryside. This year, we’re delighted to announce Hoofin’ It will be hosted on the beautiful South Woodstock, VT property of George and Jill Helmer on Saturday, September 19, 2020! We invite you to join us by riding or walking in the event, or sponsoring an individual participant or a team this fall!
Given concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, if you are not comfortable taking part in events with others, but would still like to support High Horses in some way, perhaps even while enjoying time on your own outdoors this fall, please let us know if you would be interested in a virtual alternative to the in-person event. In the past we’ve had Hoofin’ It participants “join us” for the event remotely, including from as far away as Nova Scotia and Sweden!
So much more than a just fun trail ride or walk among the trees, your participation in Hoofin’ It makes life-changing opportunities possible for families, friends and neighbors with unique needs through a therapeutic equine experience. The funds raised from Hoofin’ It directly support High Horses’ mission and program.
Since 1993, we have been able to provide a safe, fun and beneficial equine therapy program to people of all ages in our community. At our farm, barriers are removed, strengths are celebrated, and relationships are formed. Even during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are hearing from the community that High Horses is essential. It’s heartwarming to know we can safely help those who need a caring place to come for support and mind/body health during this strange and difficult time!
