Shana Rawlings, owner of Harmony In Hooves in Benton, Arkansas is the March winner of a $25,000 Intuit Hiring Grant on LoveALocalBusiness.com.  Harmony In Hooves is now a Finalist, along with Out of Proportion Studios and GoodOnYa Bar, to have their grant doubled to $50,000. 

Harmony In Hooves is a non-profit organization (501c3 application pending) that helps children in its community: “Our goal is to provide a therapeutic riding facility where children and young adults, with or without disabilities, can learn all aspects of caring for, handling and riding horses as well as experience the love, freedom and magic that these wonderful creatures provide.”

Her fans truly love the work that she’s doing for her community.  The winning vote from Farrell states, “They are providing a great need for our community and area.”

Shana is planning to use the money to take her non-profit and the work it does to the next level.  First, she’s going to use the money to pay the fees to file her 501c3 paperwork.  Then, she’s finally going to be able to hire some horse trainers, by tapping into her current volunteer pool.  The remainder of the money will be put into paying the fees for therapy for kids who can’t afford it. 

It’s not too late for you to be featured in our next winner’s announcement! Vote for your business today.
