Meet 'n' Greet guests arrived all bundled up, but the lounge was cozy, with cider and sweet treats.

At a "Meet 'n' Greet" for the HorsePower staff, volunteers and supporters on November 16, Lee's Summit Equestrian officially welcomed this nonprofit program now making its home here.

Although the day was unseasonably chilly, 50-75 people gathered with warm greetings throughout the lounge, stall area, and the new HorsePower tack room, universally acknowledged to be a work of art.

The HorsePower Experiential Learning Program offers relational experiences to at-risk youth by developing life-coping skills in an equine-facilitated ranch environment. HorsePower has an amazing group of volunteers and supporters, who proved their dedication by coming out on such a cold day and during a KC Chiefs game!

With most people preferring to stay inside the barn and out of the cold wind, LSE's furry residents were turned out in the arena one-at-a-time to entertain the guests. From friendly weanlings Rocky and Sully, to flashy stallion Thunder, the LSE horses seemed to really enjoy putting on a show - and begging for scratches and treats!

Since beginning its move to LSE on October 31, HorsePower's staff and volunteers have accomplished an amazing amount of work! They've moved all of their equines into the large pasture, graded the area around their run-in shelter, constructed a smaller paddock for their horses, and nearly finished their tack room.

We look forward to seeing HorsePower fully settled in, and to seeing more of the friends we made at Sunday's event!
