A loan helped establish a mobile equine unit to provide outreach and serve inner city youth and the community.

Dana's story

I brought my first horse (Godiva) to my inner city neighborhood in 2002 for an impromptu mini-photo shoot. We were on our way to the boarding facility where she would live, but first, I wanted to stop and show her off to my family. As we unloaded Godiva from the horse trailer and into my front yard, a few curious neighbors gathered excitedly. They quickly grew into a crowd clamoring to see this animal they had only seen in storybooks and on television. The amazement and excitement intensified as the children and adults talked about wanting to ride, work with and have a horse of their own. It was truly inspiring to see these minds, young and old, awakened to possibilities they had never before considered. It was at that moment the idea of Capital City Equestrian was formed.

I saw the opportunity to improve the lives of the youth in my community using my passion for helping children via the care and interaction with horses. Today, the new and ongoing challenges faced by our youth and urban communities present many opportunities for Capital City Equestrian. CCE's important role will be helping to address these issues and concerns that plague our city while uplifting, engaging, and supporting those within our community.
