Gettysburg Riding Club & Therapeutic Riding

Gettysburg Riding Club is a charitable organization that donates the majority of its proceeds to local causes. One of our beneficiaries is the Shining Stars Therapeutic Riding Program. In 2013, our club hosted our first fun benefit show for Shining Stars with classes which includes walk/trot, fun, and therapeutic classes, and this show continues to be an annual event! Last year, the Pennsylvania National Horse Show hosted its first Therapeutic Riding Championship Division, and our fun show was a qualifying show for this championship!  Any participants in either of the two qualifying classes will be eligible to show at the Pennsylvania Horse Show in this new division. They will have a walk/trot assisted class and a walk/trot unassisted class.
