2014 Spring Fundraiser Donors
Spring 2014 Fundrasier
Horsefeathers Therapeutic Riding Center joined with its friends and volunteers for its Spring Fundraiser at Trax Tavern and Grill in Deerfield. Questcor helped make the event a success with its generous corporate sponsorship. The event featured a silent auction and its annual Run for the Carrots. Some of the auction items included: Anirondack patio chairs, Marco Islands Vacation Package and tickets to various Chicago sporting events. Horsefeathers wishes to thank all of those who attended and provided support in the form of donations for the silent auction and their even more valuable time. The Run for the Carrots was won by Apollo followed by Scooby, and then Red Rover.

ABC 7 News Story 2012
Horsefeathers made the news with a story by ABC 7's reporter Karen Meyers, featuring riders from Keshet enjoying rides with our wonderful horses. Even more compelling than the interview explaining what therapeutic riding is, was the video of these very special riders. The image of the team required for each lesson - horse, leader, instructor, sidewalker, and rider - all working together toward a common goal, is powerful, and all of us at Horsefeathers are grateful to ABC 7 for telling our story.
Will be held at Elawa Farm on October 11, 2014. More details will come later.
The Rainbow Bridge – Lynda Vital (1952-2011)
Everyone connected with Horsefeathers has been touched by our dear friend Lynda Vital – volunteer extraordinaire, resident artist, seamstress, published author, and jack-of-all-trades creative force. Her ready laugh, irreverent wit, generous spirit, and boundless good will graced Horsefeathers through good times and hard times, sustaining horses and humans alike.
Our annual raffle for your chance to win the $1,000.00 prize will be running from May through July. The drawing will be held at the end of the final horse show on July 18th. You do not need to be present to win.
