A benefit horse show "A Show for the Cure" took place on Aug. 10 at the beautiful Danville Equestrian Center located on Joe's Brook Road in Danville.
This event was organized and run by Kelly Cyr as a Danville High School senior project. The event consisted of a 50 class horse show, a silent auction and raffle baskets. The success of the event was greatly attributable to the generosity and support received from the Equestrian Center as well as many local businesses and volunteers. The Danville Equestrian Center donated the use of the facility as well as the award ribbons. Silent Auction items and raffle prizes were donated by the local businesses and on line tack sites.
A dozen volunteers worked to facilitate the show in the secretary's booth, parking cars, selling tickets manning the auction and overseeing the needs of the riders. The riders competed in showmanship, riding and jumping competitions.
With near perfect weather the show was attended by over 100 spectators and 45 riders. The event raised over $2,700 to be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
