Realtors at GCIP are not just stellar agents we also strongly believe in giving back to our community. On Saturday November 14, 2015, the Barn Dance is being hosted at Naples Equestrian Challenge located in Pine Ridge on Center Street. The Barn Dance is a first-class and really fun night all to raise awareness and money for the Equestrian Challenge facility so they can keep extending this amazing opportunity to some of our physically and mentally challenged Naples residents. Please consider joining my wife Jacqui and I. Call me for more information.
The mission of Naples Equestrian Challenge is to improve the lives of children and adults with special needs through therapeutic riding and other equine-related programs.
Naples Equestrian Challenge (NEC) is a therapeutic horseback riding center which began in 1995 as a satellite of the Special Equestrians therapeutic riding center in Fort Myers, FL. The NEC satellite group began with four volunteers, four children with disabilities and two borrowed horses on a borrowed field. In 1997, NEC incorporated as a separate nonprofit organization. In 2001, NEC became a United Way member agency, and in 2003, NEC became a beneficiary of Naples Children and Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. With the generous support of the community, NEC has expanded from serving four individuals in 1995 to serving more than 500 individuals in 2013.
