Riders gallop into town for horse show June 23, 2008

About 70 riders participated in the Kansas Summer Classic Horse Show at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, 21st and Harper streets. Proceeds from the event benefit Community Living Opportunities, Inc., which in two weeks will break ground on Midnight Farm, a 40-acre farm south of Eudora that will offer an additional lifestyle option for those whom the nonprofit serves. "People with disabilities often don't get to experience what farm life is like," said Mike Strouse, CEO of CLO. "We're going to have all kinds of rural recreation opportunities." The farm is expected to be open for the public next year. Sharp Performance Horses coordinated the show.
