ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- What’s Right with the Community award gives a boost to Chakota Therapeutic Riding Center. A $250 awarded has been given to support therapy horses.

Kay and Dave Langenhorst started Chakota Therapeutic Riding Center ten years ago to help children with disabilities become more independent and have a better quality of life.  The program has since grown from 4 children to helping over 20 riders and also expanding into helping Veterans with PTSD.   Chakota TRC is a non-profit facility, and provides services to many low income families, often for free or very reduced rates.  Chakota is a magical place where miracles happen on a daily basis.  Dave and Kay both work tirelessly to keep Chakota running, often spending long hours at fundraisers, writing grants, and hosting events.  They are two of the most selfless people I have ever met.  I hope that they are considered for this contest.
