We Can Ride to host fundraiser for disabled youths


The "We Can Ride" program in Berrien and Cass Counties wants the people of Michiana to know that they are still providing valuable services to the community. The program is holding their 2013 Ride and Walk-A-Thon to raise money for this unique program that teaches youths with disabilities to ride and work with horses.

We Can Ride is a 4-H program that has been around for nearly 34 years. The unique program serves approximately twenty-five to thirty participants with the help of eighty to a hundred volunteers.

Riding instructor Lisa Myers said, "We really encourage the students to ride by their ability, not their disability, which allows them to be challenged a little bit more than they would be on a normal basis."
