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).
