Children, Horses, and Adults in Partnership, known as CHAPS, was founded in 2003 as means to offer therapeutic riding to children and adults with special needs.
The program has since expanded to offer equine assisted activities and equine facilitated learning for Veterans from the Sheridan VA Medical Center and at risk youth from Fort MacKenzie High School.
This Saturday from 3 to 8, CHAPS will be holding their annual Day at the Derby fundraiser in The Loft at Warehouse 201 in Sheridan.
CHAPS Board member Spencer Kraft talks about this unique fundraiser. Kraft added that there will also be a silent auction and prizes for the best derby attire and derby hat.
Tickets for the event are $50 and can be purchased by clicking here.
