H&H Celebrates Penny Race Champions

Marci Simpson earned the spot as Champion jockey for the 2015 Penny Race.  Here she is (above) receving a kiss from her faithful equien friend.  In addition to the trophy, Marci received a prize package of items donated for the champion by the Little Rock Zoo and Verizon Arena.  When asked for comment, Marci said: "I like Hearts & Hooves because it is a cool place to come out and see the horses and ride them.  I like Peanut because he listens to me when I ride him and I have fun trotting around with him.  Sometimes I laugh when he trots and I chose Peanut for the Penny Race because he's my favorite horse.  Peanut makes me happy, and makes me smile when I see him every Friday morning."


Rider Adrienne, last year's champion, came in right behind Marci this year to Place.  Here she is, above, posing with her trusted equine friend, Chaucer.  Adrienne's second place prize was donated by ESSE Purse Museum and Store in Little Rock.  Thank you for all the work you did to raise scholarship money for other riders, Adrienne!


Sam and Peanut came in to Show this year!  You might notice that Peanut was also pictured with our first place jockey; as you can imagine with TWO such strong jockeys raising money for him this year, Peanut was our horse champion by far, winning the Penny Race many lengths  of the rest of the herd.  But don't worry, Therapy Horse Herd, each one of you is special to so many riders!  Sam's prize package was a Hearts & Hooves tote bag stuffed with donations from the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.  Great job, Sam!!


Hearts & Hooves wants to give a huge and heartfelt thanks to these and ALL of the hard-working equestrians who raised money not only for their favorite horses, but towards scholarships for fellow riders in need of financial assistance.  Our riders put the HEART in Hearts & Hooves.  We're so proud of their many accomplishments here at the barn, and beyond!

Rider Testimonials

"It’s like talking to a different kid. She’s more animated, excited, and motivated about life thanshe has been in over five years. She talks about respecting your horse, watching your actions,and always taking care of your animal. Then it hit her that she should learn to respect herselfthat way too. What a huge lesson for a kid who has hated and engaged in self harming behaviorsfor years!" - therapist at Youth Home

I am sincerely honored to be part of Hearts & Hooves! It has truly become a passion in my life. In my world, full of office cubicles, computers, and project deadlines, I can honestly say that spending my time at Hearts & Hooves on Saturday is sometimes the only thing I look forward to all week! Being able to work with the great staff and awesome kids that come out is amazing! And, who knew shoveling horse poop could be so rewarding! I just wish I could give more of my time. ~Shane , age 27
