Save the Date for HETRA’s Blue Jeans and Dreams Event April 23

Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA, is excited to tell the community to save the date for their Blue Jeans and Dreams event on Saturday, April 23. This annual fundraiser helps raise money to maintain HETRA’s session fees at a reduced and affordable rate for all HETRA participants, regardless of their financial situation. It also lets HETRA keep their Military & First Responders events free of charge. At the end of the day, they never want to turn someone away from services because of financial reasons – that’s why Blue Jeans and Dreams is so important.

The event will feature a silent auction, whiskey tasting, BBQ dinner, a wine toss, dancing, and more! The event will take place from 5 – 10 p.m. Tickets will go on sale in mid-February. Stay up-to-date on event information by visiting, or by reaching out to Angie Connell at / (402) 359-8830.
