2nd Annual Distribution of Monmouth Park Charity Fund’s Winners Circle Society Transformational Grant To Handicapped High Riders Club

Tinton Falls, NJ— On September 20, 2021 Monmouth Park Charity Fund’s Winners Circle Society distributed their 2ndAnnual Transformational Grant in the amount of $21,500 to Handicapped High Riders Club as part of the Awards Reception at their Golf Invitational held at Suneagles Golf Course.

The Handicapped High Riders Club’s mission is to enrich the lives of physically, cognitively, and emotionally challenged individuals through certified and accredited therapeutic horseback riding instructions that engage special needs persons in mainstream recreational activity to improve functioning in the areas described , while increasing feeling of acceptance, confidence, self-awareness, and physical balance and in some cases, modest employment. 

The grant will fund required facility and equipment upgrades to assure that the arena is safe for riders.  This one-time facility upgrade will transform their ability to upgrade safety and service capacity for long-term impact for their disabled riders. 

With twenty-three grant applicants, members of the Winners Circle Society took time to review all of the proposals to determine their final top three to consider for the grant funding.  Maureen and John Lloyd then hosted a lovely reception at their home for the three finalists to meet the members and give brief presentations.  Members also had the option of a ZOOM presentation. We are thrilled to provide such a positive impact our community!
