I live on the west side of CR675 in zip 34211 but cross that street or take a left hand turn at SR70 and I am in the Myakka City neighborhood.
Last year I began volunteering at Prospect Riding Center on SR70 in Myakka City. We were anxious to have our name recognized and our mission statement and services available. We opened the gates and invited the community to our first open house. The neighbors, Myakka City Foundation, the community Churches and our local public service staff were there to support us.
Every opportunity that we have to open the gates at the ranch and share knowledge with our neighbors is exciting for all of us. Prospect Riding Center has offered to the community a Hurricane Preparedness Class, First Aid and CPR Certifications, Ducks Unlimited children's introduction, a Health Fair and most importantly we offer our Therapeutic Riding to all that benefit from this equine service.
The Prospect Center Team recently participated in the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. I personally enjoyed meeting the members of the church hosting the dinner as we prepared to serve and enjoyed the day of giving. A special thanks to Dan Cacchiotti for organizing this dinner and inviting us to volunteer at this wonderful community event.
Our holiday season has begun with another outstanding community event. The Prospect Riding Center Team was so excited to be part of the Myakka City Annual Christmas Parade. We brought out newest equine team members, the Silk and Sable Drill Team, and several of our PRC team members. We saw the community at its finest, enjoying this wonderful event in the heart of the community.
Happy holidays!! G. P. Volunteer, Prospect Riding Center.
We always strive to make a difference not just for a day but for a life time.
