Venue: 6250 E. Jomax Rd. in Scottsdale


May 4, Camelot Therapeutic Horsemanship will open its gates to the public to celebrate the Kentucky Derby at its 12th Annual Hooves & Heroes family event. Admission is free, hats are encouraged!


Join the fun at 6250 E. Jomax Rd. in Scottsdale from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Meet Coughdrop, Paladin and the rest of the Camelot therapy horses. There will be activities and games for the kids and a live broadcast of the Kentucky Derby. Enjoy live music by local musician Karen Dawson, and try for a chance at great raffle prizes and silent auction gifts.


Barbecue lunch will be provided by Bruce Brown Catering at a cost of $10 per adult, $5 for children. Beer, wine, “mint tulips” (our non-alcoholic version of the mint julep) and cupcake desserts will be available for sale.


Even bigger than the derby, Camelot students and instructors will be putting on a live performance for all visitors. You don’t want to miss it!
