Congratulations to our Volunteer Champions!
Ride On St. Louis has some of the best volunteers around, and many of them participate in the EQUUS Foundation’s Champion program. The Champion program, sponsored by Ariat International, was established in 2012 to stimulate and reward volunteerism. 34 ROSL volunteers joined the program and submitted 3160 volunteer hours in 2016. Of those 34 volunteers who participated through EQUUS, 22 reached Champion status by logging 24 volunteer hours or more. Those who reached Champion status were entered into quarterly drawings to receive a pair of Ariat boots.
In last quarters’s drawing, ROSL volunteer Tracey Talley was randomly selected to win a pair of boots! “These hard-working horse lovers are so grateful to receive the Ariat boots and the recognition for the essential work they are performing at equine charities across the United States,” said Lynn Coakley, EQUUS Foundation President. Read the story about Tracey here.
Ride On St. Louis thanks and congratulates all of our 2016 Champions for their dedication, service and commitment to helping horses help humans.
