Clabough Foundation provided a grant to Blazing Saddles.  This Therapeutic Riding program offers opportunities for youth dealing with the impact of personal and/or family issues that put them “at risk” for engaging in risky behaviors and having low academic achievement.  Blazing Saddles’ instructors design lesson plans integrating horses to encourage these youth to have fun while developing coping skills and goal setting strategies, dealing with anger management, learning appropriate social interaction and building self confidence.
