Lee County - - A group that serves children with special needs sponsored a night of fun and fundraising Friday night.

The Southwest Georgia Therapeutic Riding Center held Derby Day at Hunny Pot Stables in Lee County.

The center gives children and adults with special needs the opportunity to learn about animals and ride horses as a form of therapy.

Money raised will help participants attend the Special Olympics Equestrian Event.

"We didn't go last year because the year before, it costs us three thousand dollars to go. So its very difficult to do the horse thing at special Olympics. Were going to start going every other year," says Owner Tara Okon.

The riding center is still collecting donations. The money also helps care for the horses throughout the year.
