SKWHA Donates to New Beginnings




SKWHA President Ronnie Logsdon and board member Charlie Mosley presented a check to Michele Vise a director at the New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding Center, following the Kentucky Fall Classic Horse Show. 

The Southern Kentucky Walking Horse Association donated a portion of the proceeds from their annual horse show  to the New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding Center. 

New Beginnings is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving both adults and children with disabilities, enhancing their lives using the power of horses.  Their goal is to strengthen the minds, bodies, and souls of individuals. Encourage self-esteem, confidence, coordination and allow them freedom to be mobile without artificial aides.

The Southern Kentucky Walking Horse Association is proud to be a sponsor of this great program and looks forward to helping this wonderful program in the future.
