Help us help the helpers! Our giving tree this year will focus on two special non-profit organizations:
Becky’s Gift offers short term assistance to Horses in need. Becky was born April 1, 1982 and grew up in Bow, NH. At age eleven, Becky started showing horses under the tutelage of Deedee Ludlam, of Bear Brook Stables, in Allenstown. She owned a special Morgan mare named Gradell’s Delight. Becky and Daisy showed all over NH, most frequently at Deerfield Fairgrounds. They competed in Junior Exhibitor Hack and Morgan Pleasure Junior to Ride classes and were named champion many times. At UNH (University of New Hampshire), Becky found her second love, archeology, and attended dig sites in Belize, Bolivia, and Guatemala. She was awarded a full scholarship to complete her Doctorate at the University of California at Riverside, a leading school in archeology. Both Becky and Daisy passed away in 2005, Daisy in April, Becky in September. The bond between them was ever strong. Becky’s Gift was founded to commemorate Becky and Daisy’s bond, and establish her legacy. The foundation enables horse owners with short-term financial troubles to keep their animals by helping to fund hay, veterinarian bills, and farrier bills.
Upreach Therapeutic Riding Center is dedicated to inspiring hope, fostering independence, and improving the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of individuals with and without disabilities by partnering with the power of a horse.
