On Sunday, April 23, Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding hosted its ninth annual “In the Company of Horses fundraising event.” This year the event was a “Blue Jean Ball” under the roof of the organization’s new covered arena. The event took place at Brickhouse Equestrian Center, home of Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding, 2669 Hamilton Road, Johns Island.

The event was a huge success, and together we raised over $80,000 for therapeutic riding lessons for our students. We could not have done it without the generosity of our attendees, sponsors, supporters, event committee and volunteers.

Ella Willits (BEC Pony Club Member), BEC Pony Club Members helped to give out roses to everyone who purchased a rose in our Run for the Roses auction. Each $100 donation supports a therapeutic riding lesson for one student.
