The queen and her court. Bronte Gilman, front center, a member of the Glenwood Springs High School Key Club, and eight members of the GWS Kiwanis Club, pitched in for a day’s work at WindWalkers, a therapeutic riding center located at Cedar Ridge Ranch in Carbondale. The Kiwanians spent the day helping WindWalkers, which offers therapeutic riding sessions and equine assisted learning for riders with disabilities, prepare for their summer riding season. The Kiwanians laid a new culvert on a riding trail to help horses, riders, and guides cross a treacherous stream, built a hitching rail just outside the riding arena, cleaned up trash around the facility, and while the Kiwanians were doing their thing, Bronte single-handedly weeded the picnic area, spread ground cover over it, and cleaned up chairs and benches.
