Problem horse seminar to benefit youth ranch

Manasseh Stables, in Roanoke, will host a fund-raiser dinner and horse behavioral clinic to benefit Dare to Dream Youth Ranch on Wednesday, June 5, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The ranch, located in Allen County, rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected horses. The horses are paired with area children who learn how to care for and work with the animals.

Ryan Rose, a certified horse development specialist, will conduct the horse development clinic. Using a local horse, he will demonstrate how to deal with a problem horse and handle a horse with stubborn behavioral problems such as bucking, rearing and other uncooperative traits. He will also perform a demonstration using his own horses.

The event is open to the public and is designed for novices and experienced riders alike.

A raffle for prizes will also be held during the evening.

Dinner is included in the admission price. Children 12 and younger are admitted free and parking is free.

All proceeds from the event will go to Dare to Dream Youth Ranch.

Manasseh Stables is located at 11499N-400E, Roanoke.
