Hunny Pot stables get an early Christmas present

December 11, 2007

Lee County -- Christmas came early for a South Georgia charity.

Expenses are up and money is tight for the Southwest Georgia Therapeutic Riding Center.

We told you Monday that the group would have to sell several of its therapy horses to cut costs.

After seeing our story, an anonymous donor gave the center a year's worth of hay. He'll pay the cost of delivery too.

"Luckily we have a Santa Claus out there that said we will supply you with all the hay you need for your therapy horses. That's almost a ten thousand dollar donation for us with the amount of hay that we go through, and the amount that it has gone up this year. So for us, that is a big deal," said Tara Okon.

The center is located at Hunny Pot Stables in Lee County and offers therapeutic riding to children and adults with disabilities.
