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.

Horsing Around at Special Olympics 2013

Horsing Around at Special Olympics 2013 - Horsefeathers Goes for Gold

Poplar Grove, IL, was popping with excitement when a group from Horsefeathers Therapeutic Riding, NFP in Lake Forest made their annual trip for the Illinois Special Olympics. Fifteen riders from Lake and Cook County traveled with their families to compete in Equestrian Events held on October 26 at BraveHearts Therapeutic Riding, in the Bergmann Centre stables.



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.
