Second Annual
" Equine Trail Challenge "
Friday, Oct. 14 and Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016
Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth
Moncrief Building and Watt Arena


Surmounters of Texas has been dealt a terrible tragedy.  
One of our very most active, loving, giving, Veterans ( in spite of his PTSD ) was killed.
He was such an active part of getting ready for Equine Trail Challenge
 and came out with the groups of other Veterans  working on the obstacles and decorations.
He was a leader in spite of his own issues.
All others have PTSD and/or traumatic brain injury.
I try to help our Veterans to NOT have to face more trauma, and then this happens.
Everyone is devastated and it is causing its own crisis here.
I thought perhaps we might be able to continue on with our event in his honor
....but that is NOT acceptable by those who knew him here.

 The purpose of equine therapy is to help those whose peace of mind is already tenuous.
So at this time I am choosing to postpone our Equine Trail Challenge
 to some future time when others can face it better.

Participants, vendors, silent auction donors, volunteers know and have been refunded.
 Silent auction donors have said we should continue forward by having their items auctioned online later.
We'll face that later and are grateful for their support.

Please send your thoughts and prayers to those facing this loss.
I have cried it out myself but have others to watch over carefully.
THANK YOU...and I'll be back with more info very soon.
