Benton County Sheriff's Office Children hosts Special Needs Horseback Ride Event
The Benton County Sheriff's Office Mounted Posse is hosting their 5th horseback ride event for children with special needs and their siblings. It will be held at the Indoor Arena of the Benton County Fairgrounds and is sponsored by Sheriff Scott Jackson.
The participants are helped up onto the horse and led around the arena. Special accommodations are made for mounting/dismounting and safety while on horseback. Riders must be between 3 and 18 years of age and be able to hang on by themselves. The arena is not heated and long pants/closed-toed shoes are required.
There will also be a coloring area and brushing/petting station with miniature horses. Photographs will be taken and available online after the event for those who give permission to do so. A release form is required for all riders and will be available at the event and also on our website, if you would like to fill it out ahead of time.
Please RSVP by November 14th so we can plan appropriately. You can either email or phone, with the parent/guardian name and the name and age of your child(s) who will be riding.
