Therapeutic Horses Need A Barn Roof

Add another to the list of Ike victims -- SIRE, the organization that helps disabled people by letting them ride horses and do other therapeutic activities.

The organization has three locations; the one in Hockley suffered the most damage, losing the middle section of its barn roof.

They've had to cancel classes and been cut off from revenue they're going to need.

"For almost two weeks, hundreds of disabled clients have been separated from the horses that provide them both physical and emotional benefits," says spokesman Harla Kaplan. "For almost two weeks, SIRE has been separated from the revenue that help the organiztion to provide these benefits."

They're looking for volunteers to help with barn repair, and donations to help defray insurance deductibles and lost revenue.
