Nonprofit riding center welcoming Cookie to team
August 2, 2017
A sweet treat is in store for Kids & Horses, a nonprofit riding center based in Minden.
Thanks to the LexLin Gypsy Ranch in Rockwood, Tenn., the center is welcoming an addition to its program, a gypsy horse named Milk & Cookies.
The horse was won through an online contest that saw 80 Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship accredited centers vie for 20 trained gypsy horses.
The horse, who goes by Cookie for short, will be celebrated in a welcome party from 2 to 4 p.m. Aug. 12.
The public is invited to meet Cookie and learn about the center while enjoying milk, cookies and ice cream.
Established in 1999, Kids & Horses serves children and adults with disabilities in Northern Nevada. It offers adaptive riding lessons to more than 70 individuals with special needs each week.
