All profits will be going to Bennie's Barn, an equine therapy facility, in fully supporting 19 riders and their families attend and compete in the upcoming Special Olympics.

Therapeutic horseback riding allows students with physical, cognitive, emotional and/or developmental disabilities to develop physical strength, balance, control, self-esteem, and self-confidence. By encouraging appropriate interaction with the horses, fellow riders, volunteers, and the instructors, students develop the skills required to build meaningful relationships. Caring for the horses encourages an understanding and practice of good habits that are transferred to everyday life. Responsibility is developed by participating in the care and feeding of the horses. Finally students must adapt to and exert control over the horse and as a result they gain improved focus concentration, judgment, and reasoning. Each rider has a teaching team during each lesson. A certified therapeutic riding instructor works along with specially trained and dedicated volunteers to develop and implement a riding curriculum for each student. Lessons are adapted to specially meet each student’s needs and goals.

Another purpose of Bennie’s Barn is to rescue and rehabilitate abused, neglected, and displaced horses and to use those horses and the process of rehabilitation to minister to the emotional and spiritual needs of mentally and physically disabled children and veterans. Together with that, Bennie’s Barn also provides a place for children to learn and care for horses.
