Scavenger Hunt Party!
Even the ponies need to play sometimes! Blossom the wonder pony does it all from therapy to working cows to even jumping her electric fence (for greener grass, of course!) Thanks Abby for the great help!

health.howstuffworks.com Horses are extremely sensitive to human emotions and are able to pick up on our subtlest feelings to help us uncover emotional blind spots.
"This is 3-year-old Myf singing to her horses, Chester and Teddy. She climbed up on an old strainer post while singing. The horses wandered up to investigate and ended up being serenaded to sleep. Just a quiet winter afternoon after feeding the cattle. She's an Aussie country girl who enjoys having her animals around her." 🐴🎶😍🇦🇺

Congratulations to Arlo and his new family! This little guy was adopted yesterday, we have dreamed about this day for him and so happy that he beat all of the odds and made a full recovery. Arlo can now relax in his field and enjoy the easy life and comforts of a forever home! Many of our supporters have followed Arlo’s journey since he arrived nearly a year ago, starving, full of parasites and dehydrated. Soon after his arrival, it was clear that he was in a lot of pain and suffering from an extremely high parasite count. He was rushed to an equine emergency clinic and ultimately, together, with our vets and your donations - we were able to save his life. Thanks to everyone that has been a part of Arlo’s inspiring story and for making his recovery possible!￼
Looks like we need one to give Miles a run for his money! Charli Grefenstette Shannon Englund
Happy Sunday everyone 💚

These cool shirts are grey with a dark grey print and super comfy. The shirts cost $19 with $10 going to each business and $9 to the awesome team at Cheers Sports.
It's a great way to support local business, small business and non-profits. Check out the website, scroll through the organizations participating and grab yourself a slick new ROR tee. The best part is that when we all get to be back together, the shirts will be a huge way of showing how we all came together as a community!

At age 23 Lisa Hartel contracted polio, permanently paralyzing her below the knees, as well as affecting her arms and hands. Born in Denmark she was the first woman to ride for an Olympic Equestrian Team in 1952, the first female medalist, and the first Olympic level equestrian to medal despite a major physical disability. In 1956 she also won another silver medal, this time at the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne.
