Young Hearts and Horses Ambassador
Jenny Harding, For TSM

Brian, Susan, and I had the pleasure of hosting the 16th annual Hearts and Horses Gala - Lucky Hearts Casino again this year. It gets bigger and better every year.

The 1st time we hosted he event, about a decade ago, less than 200 people showed up. This year we had 626 Hearts and Horses supporters packed into the Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland Hotel Conference Center and folks came ready to give. We blew last year's record total of $206,000 out of the water. This year, after the bills were paid and the total was tallied, it eclipse $240,000. That money will be used to support the wonderful programs at the Hearts and Horses ranch.

Thank you to everyone from staff and volunteers, to donors and sponsors for all of your generous contributions. We sincerely appreciate you. A big thank you to my lovely wife, Jenny, for taking all of the beautiful photographs.

Hearts and Horses unveiled a new YouTube video titled "The Science Behind the Magic" during the gala. The kids you see in the pictures above are featured in video:
