MURPHYSBORO, IL (KFVS) - An equestrian club based in Murphysboro will be holding a horse show on September 15 and 16 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the Du Quoin State Fairgrounds Horse Pavilion.
For the past year, Little Egypt Dressage Association has been busy raising money for "Equine Services for Heroes," a program that helps military veterans through services provided by a Premier Accredited Center of PATH International, Central Kentucky Riding for Hope, in Lexington, Ky.
Organizers say there is no fee for spectators to watch the show.
PATH International provides leadership and guidance for equine assisted activities and therapies. To accomplish this mission, PATH Intl. centers are connected with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and Clinics as well as individual veterans. Veterans of any age can benefit from the program by getting involved with horses.
