In the celebration of Hesperia’s 25th Year as a City, a colorful assortment of vendors filled the Hesperia Lakes and Park Saturday and Sunday. Food vendors and carnival games entertained the large number of young families with children. If you strolled through the entire Park, you would have seen many small businesses shoulder-to-shoulder with non-profit and humanitarian groups.
One that caught my eye was the Wagon Wheel Ranch Foundation. These folks are working to bring awareness to children who are challenged by not being fully aware of their environment. With training at the ranch, the organization enhances the children’s ability to understand and work with nature. They are combating a condition called Nature Deficit Disorder.
Children join a horse camp there and learn not only to ride, but care for the animals and accomplish tasks as a team. They have numerous activities that help strengthen their goal to interact with their environment and their community.
In keeping with these activities, Wagon Wheel Ranch is hosting a special event — Hands, Hearts & Horses — with animal chiropractor Dr. Rod Block. Block is a famous chiropractor to the animal stars and human celebrities of Hollywood. With 42 years of experience, he is offering class time with those who wish to understand animals, their energy, and how to understand them better.
Ever wanted to figure out the emotional and psychological components of your horse? Here’s a chance to do that. A portion of proceeds from this one-day clinic will go to the Wagon Wheel Ranch Foundation to help them develop their programs. The date is this Saturday, Sept. 28th beginning at 9 am. Entry fee is $10 with additional fees for specific elements of the clinic. Call for clinic reservations if you wish to bring your horse for a session, too.
Opportunity Drawings will be held all day, and food
