Students take ‘responsibility’ to repair rescue group’s fence

This past Saturday, local members of 4-H and other residents volunteered to be “responsible” by helping paint fencing for the Dreamor Ranch Foundation, a San Juan Bautista-based organization that helps at-risk minors and regular kids enjoy horse riding.
“It went really well,” said Christina Bless, a junior member of the foundation and organizer for the “Revolution of Responsibility” project. She said more than 50 people volunteered. She mentioned that due to the economy, the cost of hay for the horses is too high.
“The fences and horse containment areas fell into disrepair,” she said. “Because hay is so expensive, money that would have gone to repairing the fences has gone into feeding the rescues.”
She said the project was needed not just for the foundation but also for the community.
On April 12, the foundation will host a “Day of Miracles” for autistic kids. The foundation will also host a special day for underprivileged kids from a local school in May to enjoy the horses.
“It’s amazing what horses can do when you put them with kids,” she said, adding that horses have been proven to help at-risk and autistic children improve their conditions.
