The group "Exceptional Equestrians" welcomed hundreds of riders to their 18th annual Exceptional Equestrians Horse Show. 

The non profit works to provide people with special needs, an opportunity to use equine assisted therapies. 

People using the therapy, got to showcase their talents and accomplishments in front of family and friends. 
"This is a therapy that they come to, that they love. It really helps them, because that horse provides a huge impact on their day to day function. It gives them great strides in their progress," explained Nancy Williquette, the Director of Marketing and Development. 
There were riding demonstrations, trophy presentations, picnic lunch, children's games, raffles, and riding opportunities for siblings.
