Horses with H.E.A.R.T. announces Winner of Bill Owen Print!

After six months of entries, the drawing was held the last day of Faire on the Square in Prescott.

Horses with H.E.A.R.T. rider Tarik McMaster was on hand to draw the winning ticket.

We called our winner, Stephanie Thompson and within moments she joined us at the Horses with H.E.A.R.T. booth in complete astonishment.  Not only did she love  “A Li’l Encouragement”, the original Bill Owen print, donated to assist our fundraising efforts by the artist, but she stated, “I have never won anything in my life”.

Stephanie was thrilled to have this work by Prescott’s own internationally recognized artist, Bill Owen to enjoy in her own home and had “the perfect place all picked out”!  Stephanie works at the VA in Prescott alongside the participants in the HwH Heroes & Horses program.
