Scholarship Fund
 
In 2016-2017, the RHR Scholarship Fund was able to sponsor over 400 individual lessons for dozens of particpants. Thanks to the following organizations whose grants and donations have helped support our Scholarship Fund : The Equus Foundation, University City Kiwanis Club, and Women for Women Foundation for their grants and contributions for our Scholarship Fund.

Many thanks to the Farmville chapter of DAR, Major Benjamin May! They gave a scholarship to provide therapeutic riding lessons for an Armed Service Veteran who otherwise might not be able to afford to participate. Many thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Atherton who created the Lt Col Jack Atherton scholarship this fall.  This scholarship will allow us to offer therapeutic riding lessons to a veteran who would otherwise be unable to afford to participate. The scholarship honors their grandfather, Lt Col Jack Atherton, who was in the USAF and a POW in Germany. He received the Purple Heart, among many other honors. Many thanks to former Executive Director Linda Moran, who continues to volunteer her time on behalf of our particpants and RHR by writing grants.
 
Operating Donations
 
Thank you to State Farm Neighborhood Assist for the $25,000 grant, which has made our barn a even more beautiful and safer place for our students and our horses! We will have an Open House on August 16,2016 to show our community supporters all of the wonderful upgrades and changes at the barn. Thank you to Andy's Charitable Foundation, Pitt County Wildlife Club, the Hodd Family Trust, and the Greater Greenville Community Foundation for their grants to support RHR general operating expenses this year.  Thank you to Kiwanis Club of Greenville / University City for a grant which provided new helmets for our riders. Last but not least, thank you to the 110 high school, college and adult community volunteers who came to the barn every week and in the process donated 4,300 hours to help with lessons this year; without your efforts this program would not be possible
