I AM NATIONAL ABILITY CENTER

“I still cry happy tears when I think how much it means to be able to participate in sports. I didn’t expect to be treated with the dignity that I’ve received here.”Continued.

FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH
Our Annual Barn Party

Barn Party 2015 was a roaring success! More than 60 volunteers gave 272 hours to transform the Peery Scowcroft Equestrian Center into a beautiful western-style arena complete with mechanical bull rides, a silent auction and potato sack races.

 

More than 500 people came out to support the National Ability Center, and kick up their boots to country western singer Lisa Daggs. We are so grateful to this community of donors, volunteers and families for their continued commitment to empowering individuals of all abilities through our equestrian programs.
