Horseback Riding at
Grace Therapeutic Horses
September 19, 2015 — Beyond the Walls children from Lighthouse Church and Living Hope Church were able to spend a day riding horses, grooming, feeding, and cleaning the horse stalls. The kids were taught and led by volunteers provided by Grace Therapeutic Horses.
Event Highlights — Kids got to enjoy a ride out onto a forest trail and roast hot dogs around a campfire for lunch. Surprisingly, one of the young girls stated she was disappointed there was not any horse droppings to clean up in her stall. Thank you to Grace Therapeutic Horses for this memorable time for the children!
