The Cyr Family Charitable Trust Announces Partnership with Ms. Wheelchair America 2013 and Non Profit Upward Transitions Therapeutic Horsemanship

Pipe Creek, Texas (PRWEB) December 09, 2012

The Upward Transitions Therapeutic Horsemanship (UTTH) organization hosted Ms. Wheelchair America 2013 for a day of learning and riding at the Happy Heart Ranch in Central Texas. UTTH welcomed Ms. Mariah Kilbourne from Converse, Texas. Ms Kilbourne visited the Happy Heart Ranch with the idea that she would conquer horseback riding in an effort to raise awareness for wheelchair bound children and adults across America.

Ms. Kilbourne was crowned Ms. Wheelchair America 2013 on August 11, 2012 in New Jersey as part of a national competition. She was chosen among 27 participants, and she won over the judges with her communication skills, especially laughter.

The riding event was sponsored by the Cyr Family Charitable Fund. Dr. Steven J. Cyr and Mrs. Le Ann M. Cyr are the benefactors of the Cyr Charitable Fund, and their mission has been to give something back to the community. Their charitable fund focuses on Christian-based organizations, U.S. military support organizations, education and youth sports in an effort to help people across the globe.

The riding event was managed by the UTTH Program Manager, Barbara Taylor, who is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (P.A.T.H) certified instructor. Ms. Taylor is responsible at UTTH to design riding programs for people with disabilities and or are challenged to ride horses. Her experience with horses, and designing individual or group riding programs is instrumental in UTTH carrying out its mission to help those who may be challenged to gain confidence and achieve success through horsemanship.

If you'd like more information or wish to donate to UTTH please call the Executive Director, Amber Higgs at 210-885-3464. If you'd like more information about volunteering or donating to the Cyr Family Charitable Fund please contact the Executive Director, Dave Howell at 210-618-6566.
