In April of 2018, our therapy horse “Bobby” received the best birthday present ever...a $5000 Platinum-level “Grand Prix” sponsorship from the Gainey Foundation! Established in memory of Cathy and Laura Gainey, the Gainey Foundation is committed to supporting charitable organizations that offer environmental and arts education programs for youth*. PARD thought it was only fitting to have Mr Bob Gainey sponsor a horse named Bobby! And now thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Gainey Foundation, Bobby (the horse, of course) has his board, hay, feed, nutritional supplements, vet visits, farrier visits, and so much more covered for one year. Bobby was 16 years old when he joined the program in 2015. He’s the smallest of the five horses we currently have, making him an ideal fit for our young riders. He has won the hearts of many of our volunteers with his kind disposition and willingness to please. He has many good years to offer PARD as a therapy horse.
