SPURS Therapeutic Riding Center is using Hippotherapy to help those with disabilities.  Hippotherapy is known as "Treatment with help from a horse."

SPURS has forty acres of land with fifteen horses that help out over 150 people a year ranging in age from five to sixty-five.

Lori Westby's daughter has been a faithful rider at SPURS for the last eighteen years and blossomed because of the program

"She has excelled at school, in her FFA program, and with horse judging." Westby said. "I attribute that to SPURS.

SPURS will be celebrating their 20th birthday this Saturday at their ranch northwest of Aberdeen.  They encourage all to come out and enjoy the festivities.

The festivities will start at 5:00 on Saturday night and tickets at the door to the dance, dinner, and silent auction are $15 for kids and $35 for adults.
