DALE CREEK EQUESTRIAN VILLAGE

Wild Rose Horse Obstacle Contests 

January 24 - 26, 2020

TWO 2-MILE TRAIL OBSTACLE EVENTS AND A CLINIC

Gary and Carole Wilder are volunteers partnering with Bethany’s Gait in creating opportunities for our fellow equine enthusiasts.  Our goal is to create an enjoyable environment where we challenge ourselves and our horses to advance our skills while enjoying the friendship and camaraderie of other riders.  The upside of this is that all proceeds go directly to benefit a fantastic 501(c)(3) charity – Bethany’s Gait - to support their programs. 

Bethany's Gait is dedicated to "Rescuing Horses, Restoring Lives".  The programs offered by Bethany's Gait were created specifically for active duty, reserve and veteran military personnel, first responders and their families.  One of the things that makes the program unique is that Bethany's Gait is also a horse rescue.  They have found that bringing the rescue horses together with the people offers a dynamic situation where horses and humans heal through a bond that is developed based on unconditional love, unwavering trust and a keen understanding of what the other has been through.  Bethany's Gait is a 501(c)(3) non-profit ranch in Prescott, AZ.
