2017 VHC Reciprocity Ride
VHC Reciprocity Ride - Scholarship Fund Raising
Saturday, July 22, 2017 (rain or shine) 10 am – 3 pm
65 Preston Road, Orange, VT 05641
Come join us for this fun event geared toward youth and the young at heart. The VHC scholarship committee is hosting a Reciprocity Ride to raise funds for our scholarship accounts. It is specifically geared toward youth as a way to give back to our horse community. All of the entry ($50) and any additional pledges that participants raise and donate are 100% tax deductible. There will be 6-mile loop and an approximately 12-mile loop to choose from. The trails are wooded and field and for the most part groomed and wide so they are specifically suited for a mentor and youth, novice youth or the young at heart. Our hope is that riders experience the joy of the trails with their equine partner. We hope you will be inspired to raise money for this important mission. Three scholarship funds exist; Cliff Murray and Floyd Fuller Memorial Fund (college), Youth Fund (< 19 years old), and Adult Continuing Education (> 19 years old). Detailed descriptions can be found on the VHC website under services/scholarships.
