At our last club meeting, Jan Clifford Executive Director, Horsepower Therapeutic Learning Center  and her husband Tim Clifford, were our guest speakers.

Their story of Horsepower which was founded in 1995 is truly a remarkable one. They are now in their new location, 4537 Walpole Road, High Point. As a perfect example of the impact Horsepower is having on the area, the fund raising drive to fund the move to the new location, was able to raise $1.2 million dollars.

We loved the stories of the success of riding the horses as therapy. Jan told of many examples such as the young boy who spoke his first words on a horse or Tim telling of many kids who, usually don't follow instructions, but will as long as they can continue to be allowed to ride the horses.

Willie Pegram presented a $5000.00 check to Jan as an example of our long term partnership with Horsepower.
