TWHA is a family oriented horse show circuit that promotes good will, good sportsmanship, and good values in central North Carolina. Again this year, we had the opportunity to give back by incorporating a “Ride for the Cause” Go as You Please class into your 2017 Horse show season. TWHA is proud to announce that the proceeds for 2017 will be donated to the NC Therapeutic Riding Center and we would like to present a check to them for $114.
