We utilize a unique blend of non-riding equine assisted activities and learning coupled with meditation, mindfulness and gentle/restorative yoga to allow a chance for individuals, families, squads, crews to unwind, relax and understand any issues that they mat be experiencing. We have a 33 acre facility that needs some basic work done, but only with your help, can we complete these projects before we go full speed ahead. We are seeking a minimum of $5000 to complete a fencing project around our riding ring to allow us to provide these equine support activities for our heroes and their families. For $2000 more, we will be able to purchase new accessories for our yoga/meditation activities (yoga mats, bolsters, blankets, foam blocks) and a small couch for people to rest on. We are located about 5 minutes from Kings Dominion is Doswell, VA on part of the historic Meadow Farms property. Please consider donating to Checkpoint One - and help us provide, at no cost, a respite for these great men and women and their families/caregivers. Thanks so much from all of here.
