On behalf of our clients, Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers I wish to thank Mr. Bryson for including our nonprofit as an option for memorials made in his name. Mr. Bryson knew firsthand of the potential for amazing results when you partner with a horse. For our HORSEPOWER horses, they allow our riders with special needs to work on fitness, social skills, communication skills, functional academics, and Life skills. For someone confined to a wheelchair, our horses serve as their “legs” where they can walk and trot; experiencing a new sense of freedom of movement. George understood and valued horses and his legacy will live on through the fond memories and stories of family and friends. George and his family are in our thoughts and prayers.

So sorry for your loss, He knew more about a horse than anyone I ever knew not to be a Vet. I had horses for 50 years and regret the day I had to give them up, I loved them as much as he did.

Uncle George, I will miss you and hold tight to the wonderful memories. It has been an honor to live in Greensboro the past 10 years and be able to get close to both you and Aunt Madolyn before she passed. I know it is as wonderful as we talked about, and I'm picturing you dancing with your true love, with horses standing by waiting for a ride, of course. I love you.
