Sunrise will be at Depot Fest!

Come join the fun at Depot Fest on Saturday, September 8th!  This fun street fair will be held in the Depot District and highlights include Lemonade Day, vendor booths, food, and a breaking the Guinness Book of World Record’s record for Longest Soul Train.  Sunrise will be serving up Pork Chop Sandwiches and Roasted Corn.  Put on your dancing shoes and come on down to enjoy the fun.  Festivities run from 12-6 pm.  Stay for the evening concert featuring Big James and the Chicago Play Boys & the Tempted Souls Band.  Tickets are $15 in advance and can be purchased at the Sunrise Booth.  Money raised supports the mission of Sunrise Therapeutic Riding Center to promote the health and social development of those with physical, mental, and social challenges through equine assisted therapeutic activities.

Pizza Party Fun!

Pizza Party Fun!

On Wednesday, April 18, riders, volunteers, and staff came together to celebrate the successful completion of our early Spring riding session.  Over 35 people enjoyed pizza and s’mores while connecting with each other and sharing stories about their Sunrise Experience.  We would like to thank all of our volunteers who help us make a difference in the lives of others.  The Sunrise barn is filled with smiles and laughter during lessons and our volunteers contribute to that joy.  Our riders are very special to us.  Thank you for allowing us into your lives and sharing your challenges, hopes, dreams, and achievements with us.  You all are such an inspiration.

Our next ten week session of lessons begins on Monday, April 30.  If you would like to participate, let us know.  We are scheduling lessons now and have a few spaces left.  If you would like to become a volunteer, give us a call and we will get you trained to help as a sidewalker, horse leader, or stable maintenance.  If you are interested in making a monetary donation to Sunrise, our Scholarship Fund helps our riders in need who cannot afford to pay.  Currently, 90% of our riders receive assistance from the Scholarship Fund which is supported by generous donations from people like you.  We are very excited to begin our next round of lessons and look forward to the Ice Cream Sundae Party to once again celebrate our success!
