On May 7th the Rolling Hills Saddle Club hosted members of the Special Equestrians organization for a uniquely inspiring event at the Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta, GA. Rolling Hills Saddle club has been organizing horse shows in Alpharetta for many years but for the first time Rolling Hills has now added classes for riders with special needs.

The new events are called Exceptional Rider Classes and are held at approximately 12:30 pm on the Saturday of Rolling Hills open shows at Wills Park. There is no admission and the public is always welcome to come out and watch horses and riders show their stuff. Shows are currently scheduled for June 11th, July 16th, August 13th and October 8th.

The Special Equestrian riders compete in several different events which require varying levels of horsemanship and receive ribbons based on scores given by the panel of judges. It is a tremendous way for the competitors, families and horses to show off how hard they have been working with a heartwarming competition that allows spectators to applaud their efforts.

I hope you can come out tomorrow to see their show. You will be glad you did.
