The Charities

Manna’s Hana Riding Center

Learning While Riding

Bobbie Abell is the founder and Executive Director of Manna’s Hanna Riding Center which opened in 2011 for children with special physical, mental or emotional needs. When she and her husband retired to Tennessee from Florida, all they wanted to do was farm and ride their horses. One Sunday, Bobbie witnessed a miracle when she saw a four-year-old take his first steps after riding a pony the day before.

Rita Craighead, Joe and Connie Albrecht and city manager John Gentry decided that, with big-box stores such as Wal-Mart and Lowe’s moving in, Downtown needed attention.
