Pennyslvania Harness Horseman's Assn. donates to Las Vegas non-profit
The Pennyslvania Harness Horseman's Assn. has donated $2000 to Las Vegas-based Horses4Heroes, a non-profit horseback riding program.
Horses4Heroes is one of the most successful equestrian support groups for veterans and military families. Since 2006, Horses4Heroes has introduced more than 5,000 servicemen and women to horses and horseback riding, simply because of their sacrifice and service to our country. Las Vegas-based Horses4Heroes is a non-profit organization that serves all active duty military personnel, veterans, First Responders and their families. The organization's growing national network of more than 200 equestrian facilities in 43 states plus Canada provide affordable (sometimes free) recreational, instructional and health & wellness programs for all ages, all riding levels and all disciplines. These programs emphasize fun and safe activities with horses, mounted and un-mounted for all ages. Participants learn valuable leadership and teamwork skills, make new friends, and develop a lifelong love of horses.
Horses4Heroes programs include HorsePlay, a "Mommy-and-Me"
Founded in 1967, the Pennsylvania Harness Horsemen’s Association (PHHA) is committed to promoting the development of harness racing in Pennsylvania. The organization represents horsemen at Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs and Harrah’s Chester Casino & Racetrack. Headquartered in suburban Harrisburg, the PHHA maintains branch offices at both tracks.
