Horse fair, play day help Fall City's Warrior Family Retreats

The Northwest Natural Horsemanship Center in Fall City hosts a Summer Horse Fair and Play Day, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 21, at its arena.

The event benefits the center's Family Fund-sponsored Warrior Family Retreats and its scholarship fund.

Warrior Family Retreats happen each year, using horse therapy and other programs to let families reconnect and deal with the challenges experienced by soldiers returning from a long deployment and the realities of war.

This weekend’s fair and play day includes equestrian games for horse owners, such as flag races, weave piles and a keyhole race,and country games and activities for families, such as balloon tosses, sack races and a watermelon seed spitting contest.

Horse and rider registration is at 8 a.m. All-day horse entry is $25. Donations are $2 per family game.
