Building a Better Community Since 2007

Windhorse Equine Learning is pleased to announce their 1st Annual Art Raffle

Wednesday Sep. 6th, 2017

Windhorse Equine Learning is pleased to announce their 1st Annual Art Raffle to support youth programs. Four fine equine paintings have been donated to the cause by talented regional artists; Edd Enders, Ann Justin, Mary Roberson, and Steven Roebuck.

Windhorse Equine Learning serves youth ages 8-17 in Montana’s Gallatin and Park Counties as the only nonprofit organization in our community to offer equine-assisted learning (EAL) programs to able-bodied and at-risk youth. EAL is a relatively new modality which facilitates learning and personal growth through experiential interactions with horses. By teaching horsemanship, leadership, partnership, responsibility, communication, empathy and other skills, we strive to build confidence and self-esteem, reduce anxiety and stress, and give our students tools to navigate the challenges they face at school, among their peers, and in their family relationships. Funds are needed to provide scholarships so that every child with financial need can benefit from Windhorse programs.

The paintings in Windhorse’s 1st Annual Art Raffle will be exhibited locally; raffle tickets are available at eight regional businesses and can be purchased online. Buyers need not be present to win, and the painting can be mailed to the winner. Tickets are $40 and the odds of winning are great with only 150 tickets being sold. The winner chooses their favorite painting and the remaining three pieces will be auctioned off on November 9 at the Equine & Wine Lady’s Night at Four Corners Saddlery & Boutique. The drawing is at 7:00 pm, followed by live auction for remaining art at 7:30 pm.

See the artwork at: The Great Rocky Mountain Toy Company, 111 East Main Street in Bozeman through October 6 then at Four Corners Saddlery & Boutique, 81770 Gallatin Rd, through November 9.  Raffle tickets also available (cash and checks only) at Montana Cup, Spur Line, and the Livingston Art & Culture Center in Livingston and in Bozeman at Head West, Bridger Animal Nutrition (North 7th location), The Great Rocky Mountain Toy Company, Rosauer’s, and Four Corners Saddlery & Boutique.
