We had a wonderful 2016 Stable Hands season. We increased the number of participants served, hired two new instructors, and added a couple of new horses to the herd. We will compile the stats and get them posted soon. And we had wonderful supporters in 2016. THANK YOU to all that have donated and provided their support to Stable Hands. Our October 2nd event and our Year-end Rider and Volunteer Celebration were tremendous. A BIG SHOUT OUT to Courtlyn Rice, a Yreka High School Senior who made Stable Hands her Senior Project. She facilitated a fundraiser during our Year-end Celebration that has netted over $12,000. Thank you Courtlyn on behalf of all of our riders, staff, and volunteers. You rocked our lives!!
Your chance to support Stable Hands is still there. we are participating in the Giving Tuesday event on November 29 hosted by the Shasta Regional Community Foundation. We were pleasantly successful last year and hope to build on that success this year. See below for more information.
I am also happy to announce that Stable Hands has hired a new Executive Director. Gretta Brown will be replacing me. We look forward to her leadership. It has been an honor to have been the Executive Director these past 18 months and I am appreciative for the trust everyone had in me. Thank you.
Jay Perkins, Outgoing Executive Director
Fun fall for all
We added two wonderful new instructors this fall, Sam Gemaehlich and Lauren Sweezey. They were a delightful addition and our riders took to them almost immediately. Thank you Erin, Sam and Lauren for a great fall. And of course a big thanks to our wonderful volunteers.
“I Know a Place”
I know a place that changes lives
Hands them the reins and freedom to fly
Riding atop gentle giants
Who care nothing more than to please their clients
Everyone leaves with a smile and warm heart
Horses fix things that have fallen apart
No matter how broken a person may be
Stable Hands has the power to set them all free
