DIANA, TX (KLTV) - They're a group dedicated to helping others with horses and today, they got a little help of their own.

Members of the East Texas Walking-Racking Horse Association presented a one thousand dollar check to Windridge Therapeutic Equestrian Center near Diana. The group wanted to support the center for its 20 years of work helping physically and mentally disabled patients through interaction with horses.

"We did this is through accumulation of horse shows and fundraiser's that our club has throughout the year, its just a way of giving back" said donor Dennis Jones.

"Windridge being a non-profit organization all funding, all community support enables us to do what we do so we can continue to provide" says Windridge assistant Dawn Martin.

Windridge keeps around 25 therapeutic horses at the facility manned largely by volunteers.
