BENEFITING: MARYHURST INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 03, 2011
Zubrod Stables in Prospect KY, along with Maryhurst Residential Treatment Facility in Louisville, KY are sponsoring an Equine Day Camp for teen girls.
These girls are disadvantaged in that they have grown up in poverty, been abused and traumatized, abandoned or neglected, and subsequently placed in the custody of the state.
This project is a 6 hour long Camp for these teen girls. We are counting on 10 girls participating.
The day would include horseback riding lessons for teen girls, tacking and grooming lessons, learning about Saddlebred horses, and fun and games such as painting the horses and playing horse games.
The hope is that these girls will develop confidence in riding horses, learn sportsmanship skills, and learn to feel comfortable around people and horses alike.
This is the exact same project as the Maryhurst Equine Camp for Teen Girls.
THERE IS ANOTHER PROJECT: THE MARYHURST EQUINE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM, WHICH WILL PROVIDE ONGOING LESSONS TO THE TEEN GIRLS OF MARYHURST, WITH THE EVENTUAL GOAL OF HAVING THEM SHOW IN HORSE TOURNAMENTS.
