Milestones Horse Show & Fun Fair to celebrate 20 years of service on Saturday at Independence farm

Visit the Milestone Horse Show & Fun Fair, celebrating 20 years of service, at the Independence farm for a Family Friendly Fundraiser on Saturday.

Milestones is a therapeutic horsemanship program that presents opportunities for individuals with challenges to enhance quality of life.

It is a nationally accredited, nonprofit organization that strives to assist each rider to become an innovative and productive member of the community by building independence, self-confidence, and social skills in a safe, fun, loving environment.

Milestones does this by teaching horsemanship skills and basic grooming to individuals with diagnoses such as Autism, Cerebral Palsy, traumatic brain injury, Spina Bifida, Down syndrome, etc., as well as through our Silver Saddles Program (developed for riders ages 50 and older).

Join the fun down on the farm (12372 Riggs Road, Independence) on Saturday for the 20th Anniversary celebration beginning at 10 a.m.

Milestones will proudly present its first rider Horse Show (admission to the Horse Show is $10 per car).

Milestones riders will demonstrate their knowledge of horsemanship and riding skills as they compete in front of a guest judge.

The Fun Fair will begin at noon and run until 7 p.m.

Attendees can purchase tickets to participate in a “Hug a Horse Booth,” vote for “King and Queen of the Barn” and have their pictures taken at a Wild West Photo Booth.

There will also be a silent auction, split the pot raffle and an opportunity to decorate our 20th Anniversary Commemorative Plaque (these activities will close at 6 p.m.)

Express Catering’s Food Truck will be available throughout the day.

Live music courtesy of Noyz Boyz will be in the arena barn during the Fun Fair.
