Hey All,


JAKES Club, Jesus And Kids Evangelistic Saddle Club, 2024 May and June programs were phenomenal! There were so many accomplishments and blessings I hope we can remember all of them to share.


Volunteer Saddle Club (VSC) scheduling changed with returning 2023 Tuesday and Wednesday volunteers moving to Thursday's. Welcoming a wonderful new volunteer Yay! This will allow private Therapeutic Riding Club (TRC) classes on Wednesday if needed.


Thursday's VSC Program lesson plan focused on horsemanship classes. Utilizing JAKES Club worksheets in haltering, grooming and after several rain or heat cancellations a saddle class. The biggest praise came when our wonderful volunteers taught Numbers (horse) to walk the grass area reining pattern that Dr. Peddicord approved during the annual Spring Vet Check.  This was in preparation for our TRC riders to learn to halter, and lead Numbers independently on the ground on Fridays. Then it was Micah's (horse) turn. Thursday volunteers helped teach and desensitize him to JAKES Club games. in preparation for TRC riders. First off the water game, continuing with the basketball game and ending the season introducing him to the mailbox which will hold TRC Bible scriptures. This preparation provided both horses to be able to serve and incorporate Thursday's accomplishments into Friday TRC lesson plans.


Friday TRC classes began with group Bible scripture and horsemanship worksheets before moving into stall for hands on lessons with Numbers. Thanks to our great new volunteer and returning volunteers. Each TRC participant ENJOYED haltering and then leading Numbers through the reining pattern independently! Then it was our riding instructor Jacob's turn to help TRC riders teach Micah each of the ground games as mentioned above. This was FUN and many pictures may be found on website home page Flickr link. Their TRC class ended with riding the barrel pattern in the smaller arena and beginning one mounted game in preparation for new TRC riders in the fall.


It is hard to sum up everyone's accomplishments and praise except to say JAKES Club folks are already enrolling for this fall beginning the second week of September. Also in September JAKES Club is hoping to try something new on Thursdays. Please pray for a new concept to help serve more families by hosting a  "Home School Open House" for children 7 years of age and older. Our existing volunteers and Board of Directors are all in agreement to try. Yay!


Thanks to each of you for every way you help JAKES Club reach children and their families with horses and the Love of Jesus Christ. We humbly give thanks for all you do!
