We created this competition to uncover terrific charities that are serving children and animals in innovative ways,” remarked Stewart. “The result is a collection of charities – large and small – with a common denominator of having a strong volunteer network and a dedicated staff to deliver programs.”

Partners For Progress has a small lesson staff of 8 and a dedicated group of roughly 110 volunteers. By partnering client, horse, volunteer, and community, PFP offers riding opportunities that challenge individuals with unique abilities to achieve their maximum potential and increase their quality of life.
