SVTRC has had a busy, but productive end to the summer! We've added two new students, and will be welcoming a third in the coming weeks, hosted our annual horse show, and have been a part of quite a few community programs!
Our Horse Show as held on September 10th and was judged by our very own Lorna Young! We had a fabulous turnout and are very thankful for the support of our volunteers, families of participants and for our Brookside Family! A small raffle was held, which brought in some extra funds to help cover program expenses, and lots of fun was had by all!
We also recently held two Yoga on Horseback sessions, which were enjoyed by all participants who attended. We all really enjoyed the benefit of the yoga practice with our horses, and making that connection with another being while finding our 'edge'. SVTRC looks forward to hosting more Yoga on Horseback sessions in the future!
SVTRC is very fortunate to have the support of so many community members. Amber had the pleasure of speaking to the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary with board member Meredith Kenyon a few weeks back, and more recently spoke to the Brattleboro Rotary club that meets during the lunch hour. We enjoy spreading the word of what we do with other organizations! SVTRC was the beneficiary of two recent charitable events in August. We were the recipient of Fireworks Restaurant's Community Giving Night, and the Brattleboro Food Co-op's Bag-A-Bean program! SVTRC is so appreciative of the generosity of others to help keep our program going!
SVTRC will also be partnering with the Brattleboro Sunrise Rotary in November for their monthly Trivia Night! That event will take place on November 14th at the American Legion in Brattleboro. See our Facebook Event for more details about Trivia Night!
We have more fun in the works for the coming months, so be on the lookout for upcoming events!
We hope to use this space to keep you up to date with the activities and events of SVTRC!
