“Working with youth and creating opportunities for anyone to experience the incredible ability of horses to impact our lives has long been a passion of mine.” Will Simpson commented, “The Park’s Back to School Bash program fosters just that sort of opportunity and is a program I’m proud to participate in.”

Horse lovers from six to one-hundred-and-six, with all levels of experience, even those that have never met a horse, are encouraged to attend on Aug. 10 & 11, at the Paso Robles Horse Park at 3801 Hughes Parkway, Paso Robles. For more information and to join the Back to School Bash fun visit
