ROMEO VERA NAMED HONORARY CO-CHAIR OF 25TH ANNUAL RIDE-A-THON
If Romeo Vera had his way, he would spend every minute of every day on a horse! Romeo is 7 years old and attends Riverside School where he is going into the 2nd grade.
Romeo started with Free SPIRIT Riders in 2013. He became a participant to improve his social skills, make friends, and gain confidence. He likes the games used to increase skills during classes. Romeo is friendly and enjoys interacting with staff and volunteers. He uses sounds and voices to assist with location of objects. He is learning to use reigns to direct his horse and makes an effort to sit up straight while on the horse. This will improve his posture. He loves to trot, which is helping with his balance.
Romeo was born with Optic Nerve Dysplasia and is legally blind. He uses a cane because of his impaired vision. He speaks Spanish as well as English. You can say hello to him in either language and will get a big smile!
AT THE 25th ANNUAL RIDE-A-THON SATURDAY AUGUST 29 DURING LUNCH!
Saddle up your imagination for a ride to the Old West with award-winning cowboy yodelers KG & The Ranger. Their smooth harmony singing will bring back memories of the Sons Of The Pioneers, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and other cowboy stars of the silver screen. They yodel in harmony and keep the audience entertained with interesting bits of history about the cowboy songs they sing.

“Vote for your favorite horse!! Ask for pledges for one of the horses that work so hard for us. The horse who receives the most money in pledges is voted Horse of the Year. It is best to get a flat donation ($5, $10, etc.) and collect the money at that time to save a return trip. You can also save your own change each week to vote for your favorite steed.”
