Midwinter Updates

While February is a month that is firmly seated in the depths of winter, it still brings glimmers of spring on the horizon. The sun stays out a little longer each day and is getting stronger and higher in the sky. With anticipation of the next season moving closer, February is perfect month to celebrate love and hope. We have an abundance of both love and hope to celebrate at this time, and we hope the same is true for all of you.

“Volunteering at THS has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Not only have I been able to rekindle my love of horses, but I’ve been able to share that love with so many of the awesome volunteers here.
