Monday, 6.28.10 at 3:30 pm it became official, Horses with H.E.A.R.T. has closed escrow on their new home. Located at the “Gateway to Chino Valley” just a few minutes from the airport and central to all area transportation corridors this property is a dream come true for the organization. Starting immediately, Horses with H.E.A.R.T. begins the process of building our dream. We have a lot of work to do before we can move, but we're excited and re-energized as we start the newest phase of our adventure.
The HwH volunteers will be working diligently toward moving from our current location at the Five-M Ranch to our new permanent home just off S. Hwy 89. We want to thank all our long-time supporters, sponsors, volunteers, friends, media advocates and the entire Quad-City community for your ongoing support and encouragement in this journey to a permanent home. This will soon become the Hands-on Equine Assisted Riding showcase for Northern Arizona.
A special “Thank You” to the Arizona Diamondbacks for their generous $100,000 grant which has been a tremendous aid in moving forward with this purchase. Without their help and the love and support of the Five-M Ranch the acquisition of our new home would not have been possible. The Five-M Ranch took us in and allowed us to utilize their facilities after a real estate exchange forced our sudden relocation from our long-term Dewey site.The past few years have been extremely difficult for our clients without the ability to have our arena cover up and resulting in us having to contract some of our programs. In a few months we will arrive at our new “Gateway to Chino Valley” destination and be able once again to expand our services and programs.
On October 2, 2010 at the Five-M Ranch, we will be celebrating the start of this journey with our 1st Annual HwH Steak Cook-Off and Family Fun Day, “The Reining Steak. Look for great things to come at Horses with H.E.A.R.T. at our new home, 2705 S. Highway 89, on the east side next to the Chino Golf Range.
