No Dry Eyes Tonight: Extreme Makeover Home Edition Helps a Maryland Therapeutic Riding Center
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition really hit a home run tonight with a two-hour special on ABC-TV with a makeover of a home and barn for a therapeutic riding center in Port Deposit, Maryland. I hope you all saw the before and the after…and appreciate what groups like Freedom Hills and the Luther Family do for people every day. When owner Renee Sherrard-Luther, who recently lost her husband, saw that the TV show had built her an indoor arena, her first words were that her clients could ride in the winter.

This show was some of the best publicity I’ve ever seen for the horse world and horse people. It showed real people and the dedication some people have to helping others…with horses as the link. Bravo!
