Our Great Charity Challenge Team will sport the theme of Dora the Explorer and friends!
We couldn’t be more excited to send Elodie Watrous and Gladstone out to compete at the Great Charity Challenge (GCC) this Saturday, along with her teammates Heather Caristo Williams and Tea Zegarac Pollock! They’ll be dressed up as Dora the Explorer and her trusted friends! (We can’t wait to see how the costumes turn out!)
It means so much to us that we can take part in the GCC, as the money raised will go to over 30 non-profits in Palm Beach County. The event itself has distributed over $19 million to over 300 local non-profits over the last 14 years, not to mention bringing together the whole community for a great night of entertainment!
Our team has the honor of being paired with the Chasin’ a Dream Foundation (CADF), an incredible organization that provides life-changing assistance to families with children fighting cancer, cystic fibrosis, heart disease, and other life-threatening illnesses and disabilities.
Lori Griffith, founder of CADF, remembers her time in the healthcare industry, “I saw families were losing everything they had in order to save their child’s life and I thought this is ridiculous in this day and age, how can we not help these families?”
Since its inception, the foundation has provided over $800,000 in financial assistance to families in need. We are grateful for the opportunity to contribute.
Join us this Saturday at Wellington International to cheer us on in the competition and we hope you’ll consider donating to the dedicated team at Chasin’ a Dream by clicking here.
Have a Joy filled day!

Sharon and John Watrous Quickly discovered the importance of a good horse when their daughters started riding. It became apparent that some horses had "it" and some didn't."You know, there's the intangible "wow" factor in some horses. We've been lucky to have help with sourcing some really nice horses. But what if someone didn't have the connections that we did?" questioned Sharon.So Joyride Eq Show jumping was created. All Joyride horses have the elusive "it" factor. They bring joy to their owners and riders. We want to set you up for real success, and we want you to have fun while you do it!
Today, Joyride horses bring happiness to riders all over the USA, from cross rails to the Grand Prix level.
