Saturday night, the Fairgrounds Exhibition Hall was filled with race goers as the CHAPS Equine Assisted Therapy Program, held their annual fundraiser.

It was video Thoroughbred racing at its best and folks could wager on their favorite horses in six races, enjoy a great dinner, bid on silent and live auction items, plus take a chance on bucket raffles.

Sue Suddith directs the CHAPS program, an acronym for Children, Horses, and Adults in Partnership. She defines therapeutic riding.

And it couldn't be done without the horses.

A horse mirrors what a client is feeling.

CHAPS has helped clients in Sheridan and Johnson Counties since January 2005.
