Between an a great article written by Elizabeth Youmans about our Valentine’s Day Mike Murphy fundraiser and our Volunteer Spotlight, Swiftsure Ranch has a lot going on in this paper today!
Love can be pretty funny sometimes, especially this time of year! So why not have Mike Murphy bring the laughs on Valentine’s Day? That’s what Elizabeth Youmans wrote about in her article by the same title as this years fundraiser theme, ‘As if Love Wasn’t Funny Enough!’ She also garnered some great info from our website chocked full of details about our programs and mission.

Our Volunteer Spotlight this quarter is on Mariya Haslam, the vivacious young lady who started riding at Swiftsure years before her affinity for the program grew into volunteering in lessons and becoming part of the Swiftsure Ranch family. Mariya dedicated 56 hours last year to volunteering in 69 lessons. For a recent high school graduate, this is no easy feat, but for a horse lover and caring person like Mariya, it makes sense. Mariya is continuing her education and passion in the field of horse dressage and training and we wish her all the best in all of her endeavors.
