Lexington, KY – (July 12, 2013) – CKRH has just been awarded two grants recently
Thoroughbred Charities of America awarded $27,480 to support the use of retired Thoroughbred racehorses in therapeutic riding as a second career
In addition to the grant we were awarded from TCA earlier this week, today we received another check from them for $3,437.00 for a stallion designation from Ashford Stud.
Good Samaritan Health Foundation donated $17,020 to support 84 youth in Therapeutic Riding and Hippotherapy sessions for three months.
We thank both of these generous organizations for their much-needed support!
