My name is Matt and I have been riding at Centaur Stride for TWELVE years! I love going there and riding Dude. I need to ride Dude because he is narrow across his withers so I can get my legs around him. He is very gentle. I can ride by myself and I can also trot. I really enjoy learning new drills. Dude will walk beside me by command, without having his lead rope attached. I also love riding the trails and am looking forward to going over the newly built bridge and exploring the new trails I’ve never seen before. Please help me help Centaur Stride, the horses, and all the other people who ride there by participating in this year’s walkathon. I’m going to be walking to help raise the money needed to take care of Dude for the next year. It’s very expensive to take care of a horse, and I like knowing I can help out. My family helps out a lot, and my mother is the Treasurer on the Board of Directors. I would love it if would join me on Sunday, March 22 at the Chautauqua Mall. If you can’t make it (or even if you can!), you can sponsor me by donating to my fundraising page. I hope you can visit the center someday and see all the benefits for yourself. Your donation helps so many others besides me.
