Benefits to the students from riding and related horse activities include physical, cognitive, and social improvements.

The proceeds from the tournament will benefit more than 250 participants.
“The community’s support for this fundraiser is critical to ensure our programs continue to provide a much needed service. The funds will be used for horse care and equipment, salaries for the PATH certified instructors, special lifts and ramps, and safety equipment for the riders,” said Renée Bench, President of KART.
