Winning horses from the Horsing Around Town project
The horse, sponsored by Timber Ridge Lodge and Water Park, was chosen in the contest sponsored by S.M.I.L.E.S.
Over the summer, 81 horses, decorated by area artists were on display in downtown Lake Geneva. The horses will be auctioned Saturday, with the proceeds benefit S.M.I.L.E.S., a riding stable that provides therapy for those with disabilities.
