Holiday Gift Card Orders

Please check out the November Scrip order form here November Scrip Order. It is due to Clareen by November 6th. There is a large selection of useful cards for Holiday giving and most of your everyday shopping needs.

Remember, it doesn’t cost you anything extra (above the cost of the cards) to support our very worthwhile riding Program.  The rebates (see the listed %’s on the order form) count as a tax deduction come April.  So the more you order, the bigger the deduction!

Thank you for your order!

September Scrip Order Form‏

This is one of our important fund raising methods that actually involves no other expenditure than what you would normally spend for your everyday and sometimes special occasions and purchases.

Thank you for your participation in this event which supports the PETS program. This time of year marks the start of our time away from the Equestrian Center until next April and with it the added expenses involved in providing winter homes for our horses (over $250.00/horse/month).

You can find the form here ScripOrderForm_Sep2015

Thanks again,

Do More 24 Here! Today is the day!

Join PETS and The United Way of the National Capital Area in raising awareness and donations during Do More 24

PETS has a great opportunity through United Way’s DO MORE 24 campaign to raise funds for the care of our 4 footed friends, Herbie, Wesley, Jake, Romer, Ivy, Dancer and Romeo.

PETS’ riding lessons are provided without charge which equalizes the benefits of riding for all of our students with disabilities.  All services to riders and horses are provided by a care of volunteers. This means that all money received goes to help keep the Program running and keeping our horses healthy and happy throughout the year.
