     – Do you love horses? Do you love to help local charities?
    Then the 14th Annual Wayne County Benefit Horse Show (WCBHS) is the place to be on Sept. 28-29.
    This family friendly horse show will be held at the Lake Equestrian Center in Lake Ariel, 181 Stock Farm Road (off of Route191) on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 9 a.m., featuring $500 Leading Western Rider and Horse Combination and Sunday, Sept. 29 starting at 8 a.m., featuring $500 Hunter Classic and $250 Jumper Classic.
    The beneficiaries of this year’s benefit horse show are: Fair Hill Farm Riding Academy (FHFRA), located in Tyler Hill, which offers therapeutic riding programs for adults and children with cognitive, psychological and physical disabilities; and Dyberry Day Camp, which has been serving challenged children from Wayne County for over 40 years with hundreds of students benefiting from the leisure time activities.
    Funds will assist both programs and the development of a horse centered after-school program.
    On Sunday midday there will be a therapeutic riding demonstration. The MC will be Paul Edwards, executive director of the Wayne County Community Foundation and former superintendent of Wayne Highlands School District.
    Purchase an amazing new "artwork" inspired by a local therapeutic riding student that explores the uplifting experience of riding a horse no matter what your challenge may be.
    Test drive the new GEM electric vehicle with speeds up to 25 mph and a 35 mile range courtesy of Baer Sport Center.
    Stop by and support this unifying community event.
    Over the past 13 years the Wayne County Benefit Horse Show has raised over $83,000 and distributed those funds to community programs and services throughout Wayne County.
