Positive Strides will host the Jaime Lee Hutchison Memorial Horse Show on Saturday, June 8, 2019 starting at 9:00 a.m. at Timber Grove Farm, 6292 Statum Road in Preston, Maryland.
“We will be showcasing the wonderful work our riders have accomplished during the Spring Session,” said Kim Hopkins, executive director of Positive Strides. “They begin each six-week session with specific goals and we do our best to help them achieve them.”
Riders will compete in a trail class and a barrel race. A recognition ceremony will be held at noon.
The public is invited to attend free of charge. Donations are welcomed and appreciated. Food will be available for purchase on site.
The series is held in loving memory of Jaime Lee Hutchison who tragically lost her battle with cancer in 2017.

We are excited to announce that we have two new horse sponsors!
Sue Simmons met our horses at Positive Strides' “Big Reveal” event and fell in love with Reds. So much so, that she decided to become a Silver Sponsor.
Margot McConnel wanted to help us offset the cost of monthly horse care by sponsoring Clacky as a Bronze Sponsor.
“Our horses are the single most important part of our therapy programs,” said Kim Hopkins, executive director. “Their gifts will help us continue to provide high quality care for our magnificent horses, Reds and Clacky. We can’t thank Sue and Margot enough!”
Lakota, Pumpkin and Rudy still need sponsors. See their profiles on our About Us page.
Do you want to support our horses in a big way? Become a Premier Sponsor and we’ll acknowledge you on our website, social media and a plaque at the stables.
Diamond Sponsor - $6,000/year or $550/month
Gold Sponsor - $2,500/year or $208.35/month
Silver Sponsor - $1,000/year or $83.35/month

On Saturday, May 4, nine of us from Positive Strides had a fun evening attending Trotting 4 Charity at Rosecroft Raceway. We cheered on our favorite driver, Frank Milby, who chose Positive Strides Therapeutic Riding Center as his charity.
A huge thank you to Gina Maybee of Rosecroft Raceway (pictured with Gaige above). She pulled out all of the stops to make our group feel warmly welcomed. And to Frank Milby who so generously chose our charity. Frank managed to win the Positive Strides race for us and two of our riders were able to take a drive with Frank on the race track. What an amazing experience for all of us!
Thanks to Best Bet Photos for supplying the video of one of our riders going around the track with Frank Milby.
Trotting 4 Charity is an event where drivers from harness tracks across North America wear a customized jersey with the logo of a non-profit that they have chosen, during the live race card. Our jersey will be raffled off and the proceeds from the raffle will go directly to Positive Strides. The raffle will be May 14th and 15th. More details to come.
