On February 22nd attended a service at an equine facility called CORRAL in Cary, North Carolina. Brothers started the day with a farm tour where the founders told us more about the history of the organization. After the tour we seeded a couple of the pastures that had been grazed down with rye grass so that the horses will have grass to eat in the spring.  We also got to interact with the horses, most of which were also rescued from bad situations. The CORRAL Riding Academy is a faith based non-profit group operating out of Cary, North Carolina where girls who are hurting are loved and experience healing and a life-change through rescued horses. They offer at-risk girls riding lessons, therapy, mentoring, tutoring and a chance to bond with horses, which provides them with the tools necessary to overcome the challenges they face. The program started with one individual girl, which eventually grew into a large mentoring program for many girls. Overall, it was amazing learning experience for the brothers and it allowed us to give back to those less fortunate than us.
