"Rockin' on the Rooftop," a benefit for the newly founded Urban Equestrian Program (UEP) presented by Southern Blues Equestrian Center in partnership with the City of Memphis, will be held on Aug. 17th from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Peabody Hotel Skyway Ballroom and Rooftop Terrace.
UEP offers inner city Memphis children the chance to learn about horses in a way that promotes responsibility, confidence, discipline, and empathy. The goal is to expose children to an opportunity they might otherwise never experience.
The program is currently offered at the Whitehaven Community Center and will gradually roll out to all Memphis community centers. After completing the classes, children who have shown an interest or skill may remain students at the Southern Blues Equestrian Center free of charge.
