Last year the program underwent some changes that meant PARD would no longer offer cantering and jumping to our independent riders. After discussing it with the riders and their families it was decided that PARD could no longer fulfill their riding goals and it would be time for them to move on to a regular program in order to continue to grow their horsemanship and riding skills. This bittersweet decision was celebrated on Sunday June 10th with a "Graduation Ceremony" where each of the riders were presented with a certificate, a picture of their horse, and a little gift. It was a time to recognize all of the hard work they have put into the program, and their dedication to becoming accomplished riders. As Instructors and Volunteers we couldn't be more proud of these young women and although we will miss them, we look forward to keeping in touch and watching these ladies concur the world!
