SES: Fundraising

Sweethearts of the Saddle Gala


Due to the recent COVID 19 challenges we have not been able to hold our annual Sweethearts of the Saddle gala fundraiser. We look forward to hosting this event again in the near future.

Held each year on the day of the Kentucky Derby, the first Saturday in May. An evening at the gala begins with Hors d'oeuvre and Mint Juleps, while enjoying violinist during cocktail hour. Everyone can then watch the "Run for the Roses" on the big screen. Following the race, you will be served a sit down dinner finishing up with a dessert of derby pie. The evening concludes with dancing to a live band. Of course we will have plenty of live and silent auction items for you to bid on with 100% of the monies going directly to our therapeutic riding programs.
