We still have grant money available! Any current MISHO member is eligible for $50 toward any clinic in which they are riding. Your only requirement is to volunteer 2 hours at any not-for profit organization and write an article for this newsletter about what you learned. See the Grant Program page for further details and a grant application.
MISHO'S NIGHT AT THE RACES
MISHO Hosted a trophy race at Fairmount Park Racetrack on July 6. Board Member Cindy Medina, a former jockey, took the group on a behind-the scenes tour, which included watching a race from the top of the stretch and touring a racing barn. Cindy shared her experiences and insights. A fun time was had by all!
