Saddles of Joy hosts online auction to support its animals

YUMA – Saddles of Joy has taken its auction — online.

The non-profit here in Yuma is designed to give therapeutic horseback rides to children and adults in the area who face some sort of handicap.

But, keeping the near 20 horses a part of the program is expensive.

So Saddles of Joy has joined forces with the community to host a silent auction this week to raise money to care for the horses.

Things from homemade decor to quilts.. and from bicycles to gift cards, they’re all up for grabs in the silent auction.

To take a look head over to the Joyville Thrift and Gift Silent Auction on Facebook. 

If you win, pick-up is May 9th.
