My wife and I have been involved with Central Kentucky Riding for Hope for several years. CKRH is a therapeutic riding program based at the Kentucky Horse Park. This program has provided diverse therapy to thousands of children and adults using the unique bond between man and horse.

Central Kentucky Riding for Hope is dedicated to enriching the community by improving the quality of life and the health of children and adults with special physical, cognitive, emotional and social needs through therapeutic activities using the horse.

We hope you will visit the CKRH site for information about this special program. The new covered arena for the program that was a dream 5 years ago has become a reality, as we moved into our new facility and held our first sessions there in June and July 09, with added classes all day long, allowing to the program to assist many many more students. More details here. Therapy can now continue year around, even in rain, heat, and snow.

CKRH still needs additional support to carry on the efforts of many.
