Paso Robles

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 foundation raised money for the Cancer Support Community and gave $5,000 to support construction of the new Equestrian Therapy Center at the Jack Ready Imagination Park in Nipomo.

“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.
