FALL CITY—A family-oriented Summer Horse Faire to benefit the NWNHC Family Fund Warrior Family Retreats and scholarship fund will be held on June 21, from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Fall City Arena in Fall City, Wash.
This family play day is open to horse owners and horse lovers who want to have fun together. There will be equestrian games for horse owners and country games and activities for the whole family.
The NWNHC Family Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps families in need experience the healing power of the horse without worrying about the costs. Through the Fund’s Warrior Family Retreats, families of service personnel who have served our nation can get away for a weekend retreat and family healing time with horses.
Equine-assisted therapy for the veterans and spouses, and fun activities for the children allow families to share their experiences with others who are experiencing the same life-altering challenges.
Registration for the Summer Horse Faire begins at 8 a.m. for those bringing their horse. Games and entertainment for the whole family start at 9 a.m. Horse owners can participate in up to 15 equestrian contests.
Kids and families will participate in old-fashioned country games including an egg race, wheelbarrow race, watermelon spitting contest and more. There will be prizes for every game and event. Anyone who loves horses and fun is invited.
Play Day festivities are open to the public. Entry fees are $2 per family game, $5 per horse game or $25 for the day (horse games only). The Fall City Arena is located at Neal Road SE and Highway 203.http://nwnhcfamilyfund.org
