CALENDAR of EVENTS
Networking and Continuing Education Day
January 22, 2017
Save the Date for Ride On's free Networking and Continuing Education Day!
We are designing three tracks for the day. One track will be tailored specifically to meet Path's Instructor Continuing Education requirement for Disability Awareness. A second track will focus on Center Administration and Fundraising, and a third track will address Veterans programming, competition and para-dressage and other instructor topics.
We are reaching out to assemble a diverse faculty from in and outside of the therapeutic riding world. If you would like to present on a topic, please contact Bryan@RideOn.org.
The day will begin at 9AM and conclude at 4PM. The event will be held at Ride On's Chatsworth facility - 10860 Topanga Canyon Blvd. The event is FREE with your RSVP to Sara@RideOn.org.
We've had a great group the last few years and we look forward to seeing everybody again!
Virtual Fall Fundraiser - November 12th
Unfortunately the upcoming Ride On event at Ventura Farms has been canceled. At the moment we do not have a new date for this fundraiser but we look forward to your participation in our future events.
The last year has been amazing for Ride On starting with our management of the Special Olympics World Games followed by the successful construction of our new 2,600 square foot Education and Therapy Building. In just a few weeks we will surpass 100,000 lessons given in our history and week in week out we serve over 230 children and adults and veterans with disabilities. All this amazing work – delivering world-class service – has stretched our finances to the limit. The loss of this event at this late date will be a serious blow to our financial equilibrium even as we continue to deliver this service, unparalleled in the Conejo and San Fernando Valleys. Clearly we feel this is a great time for you and your circle of friends to invest in Ride On.
For November 12, we are now happy to offer all the virtual wine you care to drink – price is no object! No fancy dress required! For those of you who know us and our events, our very special auctioneer will email you on the evening of our virtual event a very bad joke as a reward for your support. I mean a really bad joke.
If you know Ride On and the good work we have done over the years I hope you will consider supporting Ride On at this important moment. Please visit for ways to help.
The end of the year is upon us, the hard work of improving the quality of life in our community continues and there is no better time for your help. Please feel free to call or reach out to me at any time. As always, if you haven’t visited one of our ranches lately, please come out! I still feel that is the single best way to learn about us and to be inspired by all the good works around us.
