Horse Show To Benefit Local Kids Battling Cancer

The Kids Cancer Foundation will be beneficiary of a horse show this weekend at the Jim Brandon Equestrian Center. The Jacobs Family/Wellington Preservation Coalition Hunter Classic at the Wellington Summer Festival presented by Lala Land Productions and Castlewood Farm will take place Saturday, Aug. 2 at 5 p.m.

In addition to being treated to the horse show, guests will be entertained by Rick Steed, world champion reined cow horse rider and master showman. A dressage demonstration will also be featured.

Guests will have the opportunity to meet and cheer on a few of the Kids Cancer Foundation younger patients and siblings as they compete in a special class just for them.

All the children who will be competing in this event learned to ride thanks to Palm Stables, which welcomed them for a horse camp this summer free of charge.

The Kids Cancer Foundation will be hosting a social with food and drink, and a kids fun activity center. Guests will also have the opportunity to participate in a raffle and silent auction, with all donations going to benefit the Kids Cancer Foundation.
