Horsin’ Around, a charity that broadens experiences for special-needs individuals, received a $1,500 grant from the Richmond Hill Rotary Club in November.
Jill Stanberry, Horsin’ Around vice president and volunteer coordinator, accepted the check from Rotary President Rich DeLong.
“We appreciate Rotary so much,” Stanberry said. “This money is going directly to some much-needed repairs at the barn so that our riders can continue to ride, learn and grow in a safe environment.”
The Horsin’ Around program aims to enhance the development — both physically and mentally — of special-needs individuals by letting them ride horses and interact more with human. Horsin’ Around provides riding experiences for individuals with a range of conditions, including cerebral palsy, spina bifida, autism, muscular dystrophy and developmental disabilities.
