Whispers of Hope Horse Farm is one step closer to building a new barn for its therapeutic horses.
On Thursday afternoon, volunteers, board members and supporters gathered to break ground on a new 20 stall barn.
Pearce says over the last several years, they've been raising money to replace their current barns; some that are around 40 years old.
She says a new barn is desperately needed .
"It will save us on vet bill cost. It will help us tremendously on injuries. It will do a better job our feeding schedule but one of the most wonderful things it will do, it will give us an opportunity for more of the challenged children to then go to the next level which is be able to feed some of those horses," Pearce says.
The barn still is in need of funding to make it a reality and leadership Wichita Falls is putting on an event to raise funds for it.
Falls Fast and Furious will be held on Oct. 19 at the Wellington.
Door prizes will be handed out and the winner of the raffle will walk away with a brand new car.
Tickets cost $100.
