Board of Directors Update
We would like to announce our new officers for the 2014 - 2015 year!
President: Dawn Longman
Vice President: Lisa Yarbrough
Treasurer: Amanda Tilchin
Secretary: Mary Shafer
And a big thank you to the following board members for their many years of service and dedication to HKSR&R. Your presence on the board will be greatly missed!
Cassie Attends First Horse Show
Cassie has made great strides in her training in recent months! She has gained a significant amount of strength and confidence since she began her under saddle training and she is now moving beautifully at the walk, trot, and canter. Her trainers have started her over ground poles and small fences, and she looks to be a lovely hunter prospect! In June, Cassie attended her first horse show and earned blue ribbons in both of her flat classes! We believe that Cassie will soon be ready to look for her forever home.
Decker’s New Family!
We are so pleased to announce that a lovely new home has been found for Decker. He has been adopted by a loving board member, Lisa Yarbrough. Recent veterinary evaluation had indicated that he would not be sound for a long term riding career, but Decker is making the perfect pasture companion for Lisa's other two horses, Cash and Outlaw.

Education Building Update
Throughout the year, our Education Building has received quite the facelift! Thanks to generous donors, the building is filled with furniture and décor, including a desk, tables & chairs, filing cabinets, bookshelves, carpet, dry erase boards, as well as relevant educational equine materials such as books, bits and saddles. The Education Building is now ready to be a functional space for Educational Events! As you can see from the picture, the building is freshly painted and adorned with an eye-catching HKSR&R sign. Unfortunately, since this picture was taken, our beautiful sign was damaged in a storm and we are now in need of a replacement. Our wish list is very close to being fulfilled with the exception of a replacement sign, electrical and lighting supplies, outdoor furniture, and landscaping. Our wish list is below - if you would like to donate any of these items, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Replacement Exterior Sign
- Electrical & Lighting Supplies (Ceiling fan with light for upstairs, light for stairwell, light for first floor)
- Large planters
- Bags of potting soil for landscaping
- Outdoor seating, i.e. bench, patio furniture, etc. for holding outdoor events
