I want to thank Trump National and our supporters on behalf of the growing number of children and adults with disabilities who benefit significantly from our services. Our programs definitely have a quality of life impact. Here at the Center we say that we stride to thrive," she adds.

"With the addition of an equestrian center at our club, we thought that an event for Somerset Hills Handicapped Riding Center was a great fit. We are excited to support the tournament for the second time," says Board Member and Chair of the Trump/SHHRC Rider Cup, Harold Kamine. "Because the event met with huge success last year, we decided to make it an annual tradition. We are pleased to be associated with the Somerset Hills Handicapped Riding Center, an important member of the equestrian community in this area and a leader in the therapeutic riding field. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support its cause."
