You Can Help a Santa Fe Veteran Compete in the NSBA World Championship Horse Show!

Children interacting with the Listening Horse staff
and therapy horses at La Tienda Wild West Day.
    Among the most popular attractions at La Tienda's Wild West Day were the free horse rides provided by Listening Horse Therapeutic Riding.  Children were able to pet, learn about and ride the therapy horses while their parents learned about the Listening Horse program.  Listening Horse is a NARHA (North America Riding for the Handicapped Association) certified therapeutic riding program and they run the only NARHA sanctioned and certified Horses for Heroes therapeutic riding program for military veterans in Santa Fe.
The Listening Horse Therapeutic Riding booth drew a crowd
at Wild West Day as parents and children learned about Promise
 and Zorro, two very special therapy horses.


     As such they are honored to be invited to participate in the sixth annual NSBA World Championship Show located in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Built Ford Tough Livestock Complex, a state-of-the-art facility located at the Tulsa Expo Square.  Listening Horse will be sending 3 veterans, their horses and trainers to the show.  It's an honor, but even cutting every corner it will be an expensive trip.  To help pay for everyone's rooms, meals and travel expenses Listening Horse is sponsoring a raffle on August 13, 2011.  Prizes include a flat screen tv, Lensic tickets, gift cards to local businesses, dinners at local restaurants and many more items.  One ticket costs $5.00 and for $10.00 you can purchase three chances to win.


     You can purchase raffle tickets at Barn Dogs or through Listening Horse.  To purchase tickets or to make a donation either come in to Barn Dogs or visit www.listeninghorse.org.  To find out more about the NSBA World Championship Show visit www.nsba.com.


     This is a wonderful opportunity to support our local heroes and to give them the chance to demonstrate what they have learned through the Listening Horse NARHA Horses for Heroes program.
