SERT Pledge Ride Challenge

SERT’s annual Pledge Ride Challenge will be held Tuesday, May 16, 2017 through Saturday, May 20, 2017. Money raised will go directly into the Jenise Ferber Equine Medical Fund which supports the medical and dietary needs of the SERT horses.

The Equine Medical Fund is named after our friend and supporter Jenise Ferber. Jenise championed causes for children with special needs and programs that care for horses. She gave so much of her time and talent -- both of which helped SERT develop into the successful program it is today.

Jenise loved the SERT horses. She would provide support for the herd’s medical needs as well as whatever else was needed to keep the herd healthy. She would personally take part in the care of the horses.

 In 2000, Jenise was diagnosed with cancer. As she battled this horrible disease, she continued to care for the SERT horses. Her love and commitment to these special horses never stopped.

In 2006, Jenise was extremely weak and could no longer leave her home. She asked to see me, and with the blessing of her husband, Bruce, her mother and father, Ruthannis and Paul, I visited with her in her room. Jenise whispered, “How are the horses?” I told her that they were good. She replied, “Promise you will take care of them.” I made that promise. In March of 2006, Jenise lost the fight against cancer.

This was Jenise Ferber. Forever concerned about the SERT horses. We are proud to honor her memory with The Jenise Ferber Equine Medical Fund

The 2017 Pledge Ride Challenge will be held during regularly scheduled days and times beginning Tuesday, May 16, 2017 through Saturday, May 20, 2017. SERT participants, volunteers, and supporters will have the opportunity to help raise money to replenish The Jenise Ferber Equine Medical Fund. This fund covers expenses for the SERT herd’s medical and dietary needs. The SERT horses perform their jobs flawlessly with grace, kindness, and courage. They have changed numerous children’s lives and have only asked to be loved and accepted in return.    “Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self-esteem. They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls- they give us hope!”
