The Paso Robles Horse Park Foundation recently celebrated the successes of its first year of providing accessibility to equestrian sports by funding activities for handicapped and underprivileged children.
With the help and generosity of competitors, spectators and supporters, the foundation was able to gift more than $7,500, according to a news release by the foundation.

“The Paso Robles Horse Park Foundation has had an amazing first year as a nonprofit organization, and it would not have been possible without the community’s support,” said Linda Starkman, park owner and foundation chairwoman.
According to the YMCA, the assistance program provides grants totaling more than $160,000 annually to low-income families throughout San Luis Obispo County, offering the means for them to participate in programs such as after school, youth sports, family fitness and day camps.
