AS MANY OF YOU ARE AWARE, OUR CINNAMON HAS HAD A FEW HEALTH CHALLENGES THIS YEAR. THERE WERE SEVERAL SESSIONS WHEN HER HEART JUST WASN’T IN IT AND WE WEREN’T ABLE TO USE HER IN SESSIONS AND AT SOME POINT WE WERE PRETTY SURE WE WERE GOING TO NEED TO RETIRE HER. WE HAVE PLACED CINNAMON ON A SPECIAL DIET AND IT HAS PROVEN TO BE BENEFICIAL. THIS IS WHERE OUR FAMILIES CAN HELP. TO HELP SUPPLEMENT THE COST OF THE SPECIAL FEED, WE WILL HAVE A JAR ON THE TABLE AT THE BARN LABELED “CENTS FOR CINNAMON”. SIMPLY TOSS YOUR LOOSE CHANGE ( PAPER BILLS OR CHECK WILL WORK TOO!) IN THE JAR. CINNAMON THANKS YOU AND WANTS TO CONTINUE BEING WITH US FOR A LONG TIME! You can click here:
Or send a check to Horseplay P.O. Box 506 Vacaville, CA. 95696 Please indicate “Cents for Cinnamon” on your check.

Rider tuition of $40.00 per session covers only one-third of our operating costs, which include boarding, veterinary care, farrier costs and new equipment. In addition, we offer partial riding scholarships to riders from lower-income families. Often we need specialized equipment. For instance, one of our riders required an extra-large helmet, and the only helmet available in the size needed cost $279.00. Large or small, your donation helps!
