ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Wills Park was filled to the brim July 19 and 20 when girls and their horses gathered for a benefit show sponsored by Harry Norman Realtors. The weekend-long show benefitted shelters for battered women in Forsyth, Dawson, Lumpkin and Hall counties as well as the Captain Herb memorial fund. The show featured talent from all corners of Georgia.

"I've always wanted our agents to give back in time, money and PR," said Robert Aiken of the Harry Norman Forsyth/Lake Lanier office.

The press given to Homes for Battered Women goes to increase awareness for the cause of stopping domestic violence.

"There is very little support for that cause," Aiken said. "No one realizes the ripple effect the horse industry has in Georgia."

In recent years, colleges have begun to acquire equestrian teams to suit the popularity and growing support of the horse-riding community.

"Showing breeds self-confidence and self-esteem," said Aiken, "It makes a whole person out of the girls who ride."

The riders couldn't agree more. The positive effect of working with horses and fellow equestrians is tangible at competitions.

"My favorite part of riding is meeting new people," said rider Carri Beach as she lead her horse, Lucy, to the competing ring.

"The girls are empathetic, sympathetic and very demanding," Aiken said.
