The Golden Pitchfork Award
is a tribute to Paul Creamer who was, to say the least a mentor, an awesome therapeutic riding instructor, a volunteer, a friend and the one person the riders loved to call out, “Mr. Paul pickup needed”.  He would go right for the pitchfork much to the delight of the riders who loved him so much. I am sure he enjoyed the laughter as he did “his job”.

Each year a SPECIAL VOLUNTEER is chosen to receive THE GOLDEN PITCHFORK AWARD in recognition of their service to our Program.  This SPECIAL VOLUNTEER has devoted much time and energy in developing financial resources, training horses, teaching our riders, and assisting others wherever needed.
