Children with Special Needs Horseback Ride Event
Sunday, November 18th, 2018 from 10:00-11:00 am, registration opens at 9:30 am
The Benton County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Posse is hosting their 9th annual horseback ride event for children with special needs and their siblings. It will be held at the Indoor Arena of the Benton County Fairgrounds and is sponsored by Sheriff Scott Jackson.
The children are helped up onto the horse and led around the arena. Special accommodations are made for mounting/dismounting and safety while on horseback. Riders must be between 3 and 18 years of age and be able to hang on by themselves.
There will also be a coloring area and brushing/petting station with miniature ponies. Photographs will be taken in front of a green screen and printed onsite to give to the child. They will also be available online after the event for those who give permission to do so. A release form is required for all riders and will be available at the event registration table.
Please RSVP by Novemer 14th, so we can plan appropriately. You may either email or phone, with the parent/guardian name, contact information and the number of children who will be riding.
