Relationship of Nominator to Nominee
Doc is our oldest horse at 26 years old in our therapeutic riding program. We are a charity that serves special needs riders. Over 52% of our riders cannot afford to pay and we require many donations to help us succeed. As you know feed and supplements are costly and we want to keep our horses healthy and fit. We would be excited to win this award to help Doc continue to help his amazing riders for many more years with great supplements and feed. -- WENDY SCHONFELD
