JBRA is proud to be sponsoring, May Awareness Month - 2014 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation. We will be asking existing members and visiting patrons for a donation of $1.00 or more and in return they will fill out their names on paper pink ribbons. JBRA will attach horse stickers to the ribbons and they will be hung on display in our restaurant here at the stable for all to view. 
We will also give out pink ribbons for the donors to wear along with having the JBRA staff wear pink t-shirts on the weekends of May. May 2 is our in-house schooling horse show here at the academy. This event is our official start date for "May Awareness". All of our participants will be wearing the pink ribbon while riding their horses in the show. Information on breast cancer awareness with be available at all times during the month of May. 
All donations collected will be submitted to the "National Breast Cancer Foundation" upon completion of the month.
Women are the majority of horse owners in the equine industry and we have had some of our lady riders encounter close scares with breast cancer. When you are feeling blue your equine friend helps put a smile of pure sunshine right back on your face! Please help turn the blue days into sunny ones for those who are afflicted with the breast cancer!
