Carousel Ranch supporters enjoyed an evening of great food, impressive riding celebrations, and exciting auction items at the 25th annual Heart of the West Dinner, Auction, and Children’s Riding Demonstration on August 28th, 2021.
The event this year was presented in a hybrid format, with guests having the option to attend the event at the Carousel Ranch site or to view and join in the festivities with an at-home, live virtual experience.
This year also marked 25 years of Carousel Ranch being part of the Santa Clarita community and 25 years of their work providing equestrian therapy and other special programs for children and young adults with disabilities.
All ticket options included a delicious barbecue dinner, entertainment, commemorative gift, and access to live and silent auctions. In-person catering was provided by Salt Creek Grille and at-home guests enjoyed dinner from Wolf Creek Restaurant & Brewing Co., and Marston’s Restaurant.
Since 1997, the Ranch has provided equestrian therapy for children with disabilities. The nonprofit added its Ready-to-Work vocational training program five years ago for young adults with special needs.
