Congratulations to Special Olympics athletes, families and volunteers.  LeCheval Stable celebrated our 9th year participating in  state games.
Athletes, Jeremy Hahn, Nicholas Boxall, Jonathan Hanks, Daniel Kirkland, Alexandra McIntyre, shined in their trail, barrel, equitation and musical kur classes all bringing home bronze, silver or gold medals! Congrats also to Armand Kates-Offord who trained this season discovering that he and his brother, Sheldon love this sport!   Congrats also to past athletes who trained but have moved out of state
this year.  Mia Luoma now resides in Florida with her wonderful family.  Many thanks to Gena and Wayne who have supported Howard County Special Olympics for many years. We also say goodbye to Maggie Abello, who competed in Special Olympics in the past and will be moving to Pennsylvania. Anna, her sister, is also an equestrian!
We celebrate Dr. Ed Pecukonis who is our talented driver and all around support of the management of LeCheval Stable, including lead EAP therapist!  We value his daily commitment to the program!

Shout out to all the volunteers, who have diligently supported LeCheval in the past and present. These include the following from the volunteers with the most years of service to the newest volunteers. 
  Meredith Pecukonis, Lisa Baker, Morgan Martin, Katie Shaw, Snigdha Pali, Samantha Hines, Sarah Hobdy,
