Due to recent flooding in the area, we are seeking help wood chipping our Therapeutic Riding trail so that we can begin using it for our Therapeutic Riding lessons once again. Madison Fields has all the necessary equipment and is now seeking help from the community to spread the wood chips along the trail. The trail may need to be cleared, as heavy rains and storms have produced many fallen branches and leaves along the way. Any help is appreciated, but Fridays are best for us to accomplish this project. Please reach out if you are able to help us accomplish our goal of using our trail this October!!
