The sixth annual Runnin’ WJ Ranch Benefit Cutting will be held February 19-20 in Texarkana, Texas. The popular show benefits Texarkana’s Runnin’ WJ Ranch, a Christian non-profit which opened its doors for therapeutic riding classes in 2001.
More than 200 students participate each week, undergoing dramatic physical and psychological improvement from their therapy.
Runnin’ WJ Ranch has now expanded into a training facility for the American Federation of Cowboy Churches. The AFCC will receive training from the Runnin’ WJ Ranch to offer therapeutic riding programs at their 250 facilities throughout the United States. Seven AFCC are already in training, with five more scheduled to begin in 2016.
The Benefit Cutting will give cutters the chance to meet the volunteers who make Runnin’ WJ Ranch’s programs possible, and watch students as they experience therapy sessions. There will also be a steak dinner on Friday night.
Those unable to attend can support Runnin’ WJ Ranch’s work by
- Sponsoring a class
- Sending a much-needed monthly donation to help with the upkeep of the horses
- Donating any amount
