Angels on Horseback is looking for a few good men, women, or teenagers to help with lessons on Sat. a.m., Tues. a.m and probably another morning during the summer for our friends with mental or physical disabilities. Only 4 hours of your time is needed once each week! The summer session will be 8 weeks long and will be taught in the shade of our beautiful arena under the sweetgum trees. You are right! That is very COOL!
