NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION GROUP TO CONSTRUCT NEW EQUESTRIAN CENTER FOR HORSES 4 HEROES IN LAS VEGAS AS PART OF NATIONWIDE CHARITY EFFORT
We hope you will support AGC Charities and Martin-Harris Construction this spring as they work to build an entirely new equestrian center for Horses 4 Heroes, which provides equestrian therapy for veterans, their families and local first responders. Since 2006, they have been operating out of the back yard of the woman who founded the group, Sydney Knott. But thanks to AGC Charities, Inc. and the help of many member firms, the group has received permission from Las Vegas to build a new facility at the historic Tulley Springs Ranch on the northern end of town.
AGC Charities will be joined by a team of volunteers led by Las Vegas-based Martin-Harris Construction to renovate the current Tulley Springs Ranch into an entirely new equestrian center. During the renovation, we will build a new petting zoo, riding arena and Mare Motel, as well as installing fencing and performing site prep. We will also renovate one of the Ranch’s old cottages to turn into a residence for the horse caretaker. Once completed, the new equestrian center will allow Horses 4 Heroes to serve many more veterans, their families and first responders. As founder Sydney Knott puts it, “one percent of our population supports 99 percent of our freedoms, so the least we can do is something to show our appreciation.”
Please consider supporting this effort by donating to AGC Charities’ Operation Opening Doors.
