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.

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.

Fall Fundraiser

Will be held at Elawa Farm on October 11, 2014. More details will come later.
