Each spring, Reining Strength, which offers therapeutic horsemanship sessions to children with disabilities, holds its Derby Day gala fundraiser. This year, the event coincided with the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 4th. Dr. Mark Newcomb, Headmaster, was invited to deliver the benediction. Dr. Newcomb noted that one of the favored horses was named Tacitus, after the celebrated Roman senator and orator. Dr. Newcomb asked blessings upon the fine work of Reining Strength for bringing “children and families into a greater awareness of God’s love through healing, wonder, and hope.” After the amended official race results were released, Tacitus came in third, but Reining Strength came in first for outstanding support of its altruistic work in the community.
