Can you believe it? The Round Up Relay is only two and a half weeks away!

If you have not already done so, we encourage you to register and join us on September 8th as we walk and run along the beautiful new perimeter trail on our property. Help us celebrate 15 years of enhancing lives through horse-centered activities and therapies! You are welcome to walk or run as an individual, or as a member of a team in a relay format.

Join a Team
If you wish to participate in a team, the deadline to register and join a team is Thursday, August 30th. To join a team you will need to register for the Round Up Relay and create a fundraising page. Once you set up your page you will have the option to join an existing team or create your own! If you need assistance with this, please email

Ride a Horse
Are you a current Riding or Rehabilitation Services client and wish to participate, but you have mobility issues which may prevent you from walking or running the Relay on foot? Contact and you may be able to ride the Relay on one of our steadfast therapy horses! The deadline to request riding is also Thursday, August 30th.

Buy a Tree
Last but not least, while walking or running the Round Up Relay, you may notice some stakes in the ground around our property with photos of trees and price tags. Forward Stride is doing a tree sale!* Available at the Open Barn, being held after the Round Up Relay, you will have the opportunity to purchase a tree to be planted on the Forward Stride property and have a small plaque erected with your name on it next to your tree! Help enrich Forward Stride’s landscape and make a contribution that will last for decades to come.

So many cool opportunities! We hope to see you on September 8th!
