FALLBROOK – The 16th annual REINS Country Hoedown is just around the corner on Oct. 13. The staff at REINS is excited to announce that this year, for the first time ever, they have not only one presenting sponsor but two. Mr. and Mrs. Jim Stevens have graciously and single-handedly already made this year’s hoedown a smashing success. The Stevens’ were introduced to REINS by Dr. and Mrs. Victor Kovner in 2009. Since their introduction to REINS, the Steven’s have been instrumental in the program by paying off the REINS mortgage, building a hay barn, and now being the first-ever presenting sponsor.
Bettye Geurin-Burns, a Bonsall resident, has known about REINS from her daily trips up and down Mission Road. She decided this was the year to make a difference. She and her husband Don have decided to become the second presenting sponsor through their Donegan Burns Foundation. She came to REINS out of the blue a few weeks ago and recognized immediately how vital the program was to the disabled community.
This great family event has something for everyone: the annual silent auction full of items from around the world, rockin’ entertainment by The Clay Colton Band, a wonderful dinner by Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, a $1,000 gasoline giveaway, and of course a riding demonstration by some of the students. This year’s demonstration features a father/daughter pas de deux and an equine demonstration led by REINS’ own PATH International, Region 11 Horse of the Year, Fooley.
