Sara Roxanne Schneider Memorial Equine Scholarship
Could you or someone you know benefit from the opportunity to connect with horses through horsemanship and riding lessons? The intent of this scholarship is to provide “joy and well-being through horses” for anyone in our community who could benefit from making a connection with horses, but otherwise could not afford it. The recipient of this scholarship will receive 10 weekly horsemanship and riding sessions.
"Sara died on March 2, 2017 at the age of 30. Since she was a little girl, horses were always an important part of her life, helping her through difficult times.
"Sara started riding when she was 3. I still think that's a little early. But what else do you do when your child's second word is “'orse”, and then “pretty ‘orse”, and then after endless rides on hobby horses, carousel horses, spring horses, and mechanical horses, she always says “wanna ride REAL horse!”?
"So she kept riding. And then training horses. And then photographing horses. And somewhere along the way, it became clear that Sara had known, from the moment she could speak, that her place of joy, and sense of well-being, came from a connection with horses.
"Her horse photography was her attempt at capturing the beauty of the connection between horse and human.
"I hope to pass on the joy and well-being Sara experienced through horses to people who need it in our community. Apply for a scholarship if you think horses can bring you joy in this way. Or tell someone about it. Or help me bring horses to those in need by making a donation."
