Equestrian Crossings realizes its dream

The dreams realized by those who became a part of the Equestrian Crossings family in the first half of this year would not have been possible without the contributions and support from some extraordinary people. To those, we thank you for helping us to help others:

Jerry Gravo and Jerry Lloyd for allowing us the use of their arenas; Margot Carter and Lori Benjamin for kindly donating use of their horses; Jerry Rolfe who provided hay; Jerry and Cassie Pfannenstiel for their most generous donation to the program of a wonderful horse named Missy; Bruce Rohm for providing helmets to help ensure the safety of students; Anne Luick and Paula Keohane for their thoughtful gifts of tack and other horse related items, clothing, and cowboy hats; Bill Strowbridge and the Corvette Club for their caring donation of lessons to a special boy named Luke; all who donated items for our silent auction and raffle; the many Equestrian Crossings volunteers who tirelessly donate their time and talent to the program and its students, each and every one an inspiration to us all; and the EqX specially trained and certified instructors Miriam Burk, Emily Brink and Lora Eelkema who, with help from some remarkable horses, remind us with each lesson how easy it is to realize our dreams with a little effort, a lot of determination, and the will to succeed.
