What a beautiful day for the parade, and a perfect week for the Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo!Image2
 
The herd had a BLAST getting involved during rodeo week, and even more fun planning and decorating the wagon and motorcycle for the parade! A special thanks to our volunteers for assisting. It was truly a TEAM effort, and we couldn't do this without your support. Horses, and monkeys, and elephants, and tigers, OH MY!

Along with the presentation, Helping With Horsepower staff expressed the program's first priority - the child in session.  Through love, encouragement and support, the HWH team will always strive to provide an atmosphere that fosters growth and celebrates every milestone!

"There are so many possibilities for things to not go as planned when working with horses who have minds of their own, in unpredictable weather, and with children" said Crystal

"When all of these uncontrollable elements are blended and all is smooth and joyous, I view it as a signal from God/Spirit that we are on the perfect path.  We are striving to create and share Reclamation-Ranch to provide what might possibly be the most memorable and influential moments for some of these children.  This, for me, is a calling that is worth my every moment."  - Crystal Young
