This fundraising event for the Dorothy E. King Equine Program is produced by students in the Introduction to the Equine Industry course and with the help of community volunteers. The equine program, which supports the equine science minor in Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences, and educational programs for horse owners, is largely self-supporting from donations and proceeds of fund-raising events.
