Local News

As a part of the Founder’s Day of Caring, ABC9 headed out to S.T.A.R.S, or Special Trainers Adaptive Riding School, to lend a helping hand. 

S.T.A.R.S provides positive healing through human-animal connection.  They also have a dog therapy program, and are always looking for dogs to train and add to their ranks.  

Executive Director Angie Beaudette said she is very grateful for the help and that it is very important to the organization.
“Here at S.T.A.R.S, we are incredibly reliant on volunteers.  We’re a small non-profit organization with a very small staff.  We’re very thankful for KCAU’s visit today for helping us with some gardening, as well as helping to clean up the arena and do some other cleaning tasks.”

Volunteers from ABC9 landscaped, painted, scooped the arena, and brushed and bonded with the horses at the facility.

ABC9 anchor Time Seaman was among the volunteers, and was surprised with the task of cleaning up after the horses in the indoor arena, a task he had some fun with.

“It’s kind of like shooting free throws in the NBA Finals…it’s just shoot and miss”, said Tim. 

After picking up after the horses, Tim hosed down the arena so all the horses could come in get some shade and enjoy a nice and clean environment.
