About Our Auction
Our on line auction would not have been possible without our many donors and sponsors.
We would like to thank our Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze sponsors for the generous donations to VARHA.
We would also like to thank the many local community members, artists, and businesses that donated items and services to our auction.
VARHA, the Venango Area Riding for the Handicapped Association, was founded in March of 1980. VARHA has been providing therapeutic horseback riding for children, adolescents, and adults with special needs ever since.
The program offerings were expanded over the last several years to include therapeutic riding programs for families in drug & alcohol and mental health treatment, 'at risk' youth, and young riders (ages 3-7) with documented special needs. VARHA also offers a 'Horses for Healing' program to assist military veterans and other adults who have experienced some sort of life-changing trauma.
