O.A.T.S., which stands for Offering Alternative Therapy with Smiles, is a therapeutic horseback riding center in Ortonville, MI. We ride over 100 special needs individuals each week and we are grateful to KidCents for the $5000 grant to help us continue the important services that we provide. Our local Rite Aid store went a step further and sponsored an in-store canister drive and held a flu shot clinic at our farm. We also had children’s games and a petting zoo. These efforts resulted in an additional $508 being raised to help us continue to provide the emotional, physical and cognitive benefits to our riders that therapeutic horseback riding offers. We are looking forward to a continuing relationship with our local Rite Aid and we are very appreciative that the staff there was so enthusiastic in support of our programs.
