Leesburg-- A night of good food, games and auctions will add up to therapeutic fun for people with disabilities.

Dozens of people filled Hunny Pot Stables Friday for Derby Day in October. It's a fundraiser by The Therapeutic Riding Center which provides therapeutic horse riding for adults and kids with disabilities. Proceeds from the event are used to care for the horses, to buy equipment and for the Special Olympics.

"People don't realize, it usually costs about $2,500 to $3,000 atleast to keep one horse every year and right now we have 15 horses that we're using," says Director Tara Okon.

The center hoped to raise at least $10,000 from the fundraiser.
