Gallop for the Green Golf Outing for LoveWay

by Caitlyn Andrews October 11, 2017

LoveWay Therapy Scholarship Fundraiser Golf Event

It's already August and that means it's the time of year for two of LoveWay's biggest fundraising special events. LoveWay is a non-profit therapeutic riding center in Middlebury, IN. They help children with disabilities through equine-assisted therapy.

This month, LoveWay will be hosting it's Gallop for the Green Golf Outing. The outing will be followed by the Ride-A-Thon in October, a trail riding event. We'll feature the Ride-A-Thon in a future article.

For now, here's what you need to know about the 6th Annual Gallop for the Green Golf Outing.

LoveWay's Student Scholarship Fund

Gallop for the Green is one of the annual fundraisers for LoveWay that helps support the riders. This year, the theme is "Swinging for Scholarships" and the profits from the golf outing will go directly into the student scholarship fund.

The student scholarship fund is a vital part of enabling LoveWay riders to receive partial or full scholarship assistance. This allows LoveWay to never have to turn anyone away due to their inability to pay for classes. In 2016, nearly 90% of LoveWay riders received help through either a partial or full scholarship.

The students at LoveWay and their families are typically burdened with many additional costs such as therapies, medical apparatuses, and medications to name just a few. The student scholarship fund makes it possible for these families that are experiencing financial strain to enroll in LoveWay therapeutic classes that contribute to their child's quality of life.

Golf Outing Details

This will be the 6th annual Gallop for the Green Golf Outing. It's being held at the beautiful Bent Oak Golf Club in Elkhart on August 24th. There are still opportunities to participate and spend the day playing 18 holes for a great cause! Lunch and registration begin at 11 am.

How to Treat Rain Rot in Horses

by Caitlyn Andrews April 17, 2019

It's spring and that means April showers are here. It's warming up outside and the horses are out enjoying the break from the long winter.

It might feel nice out, but spring weather is ideal for a pesky skin condition called rain rot. Standing out in the rain is one of the most common ways for a horse to get rain rot, but it's not the only way.
