Mackinac Island Christmas Bazaar

Mackinac Horsemen's Association is our Fall Grant Spotlight of the week. MHA is the recipient of two fall grants. The first grant is the Horse Jumping program. The grant will supplement the cost of horses, instruction and insurance for qualified students in horseback jumping at Mackinac Community Equestrian Center. The second grant, Mackinac Island Equestrian Team, will create an equestrian team for any child attending Mackinac Island Public School. MHA has been working diligently to get the youth on the island more involved in preserving the equestrian culture and it is their hope that this will create a long lasting and cohesive bond of island youth by working together with horses as a team. For further information on these grants, read the attached letter from Mackinac Horsemen's Association President Steve Rilenge that was published in the Hoofprints December 2018 newsletter . ...
