2018 gala

Updated: May 24, 2019

Alpine, Utah - Bridle Up Hope hosted its second annual Inspiring Hope Luncheon on September 7th, 2018, at its new global headquarters facility. The luncheon featured stories of hope from Bridle Up Hope participants, and a fireside chat with Ann Romney, who spoke about how horses have been a source of strength and healing during her battles with multiple sclerosis. We are so grateful for the donations and pledges of many generous people, totaling $194,487, to support 194 scholarships for underprivileged girls in the program.
