2332 Main Street, Genoa, Nevada

At the home of Jeannette & Dave Bostedt (formerly the Wild Rose Inn)

Get your tickets now at or by calling (775) 265-0901


You are cordially invited to join The Wild Rose Inn for an afternoon in the garden, benefitting the Nevada Non-Profit Corporation, Between Horses and Humans, working to elevate the well-being of all children in the Carson Valley and Reno-Tahoe areas.

Between Horses and Humans, or BHH for short, seeks to inspire and empower children by giving them the tools to deal with life’s challenges. The program uses a variety of methodologies, combining ground exercises, equine bodywork and riding, along with workshops and seminars to accomplish their mission: “Providing youth a place to learn leadership and life skills through horsemanship.” Every day, they witness these children changing. They become more confident and develop a belief in their own ability to make decisions. At the end of a successful day, the children glow with their newfound sense of accomplishment, and our horses are happy and exercised.

Every student in our program participates free of charge!

100% of proceeds from the Spring Gala benefit BHH!

We hope you’ll join us in this incredible opportunity to give back to our community! Your contribution to this event and your support of this organization are invaluable. Every dollar is used to change lives and to better our community and our world. Without your support, Between Horses and Humans could not bring their compassionate and unique program to children in need!

Tickets $65.00 per person – purchase online here or call (775) 265-0901.

Program participants and their equine partners showcased their skills for a supportive audience on October 15, 2016.  Maddi’s Friesian Ranch presented two magnificent stallions, Andres 415 Sport and Doaitsen 420 Sport.  Guests participated in the “Fund A Need”, silent auction and raffle while enjoying a delicious luncheon, music and a presentation about Between Horses and Humans.  The highlight of this year’s event was the craft fair offering handmade gifts and goodies – many made by the students.

This fundraiser is essential to the operations of BHH, and all proceeds directly benefit the program.  We want to extend our deepest appreciation to all the participants who attended and supported changing lives and healing hearts.
