Lions get help from horses

Story by Kristina Sumfleth
JEFFERSONVILLE — August 16, 2013 — Despite the heat, local riders recently came out to perform in the annual Charity Horse Show held at Stone Wall Farms to benefit the Jeffersonville Lions Club.
Dust was kicked up as 20 riders commanded their horses to canter, trot or jump over a series of fences to display their skills. Contestants participated in multiple different categories including Leadline, Mini-Short Stirrup and Pleasure Horse under the watchful eye of the judge, Jessica Polednak of Forestburgh.
Once all of the events were completed, the young riders eagerly gathered to collect their hard won ribbons and prizes. For some participants the competition provided more than just ribbons but an opportunity to earn points toward the Year End Awards through the Western Hudson Valley Professional Horsemen’s Association.
Stone Wall Farms, Bonny Lass Stables, Seven Meadow Farm, Center for Discovery and Diehl Me In Performance Horses were the attending stables at the show.
All of the money raised from the Horse Show benefits the Jeffersonville Lions Club, a group of volunteers whose mission is to serve the community, providing youth with programs and volunteer opportunities as well as scholarships to graduates.
The Lions’ most recent and important projects is collecting eyeglasses which can provide more independence and opportunities to those without impaired vision. A collection box was made available at the Charity Horse Show and one is also available at the community events bulletin board in Jeffersonville.
