Kudos to Montanova & to CACF. Learning the joys & responsibilities not only of riding, but of caring for, horses is a great way to teach kids responsibility & compassion. Arrangements like this keep a lot of kids out of harm's way, too. Real horsemen & women know it isn't all about high-end shows & expensive competitions. Worth every penny of the grant. Congratulations.

Nothin' wrong with muckin' stalls. Perfectly honest work. Nobody who rides shouldn't participate in that "end" of the experience, also :)

And for those who don't, somebody's got to do it.
