GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) - A fashion show, hat contest and auction were all on display at the Greenville Country Club Sunday for the first annual Hats Off to Horses.
Around 150 people attended the event, wearing their Sunday's best and enjoying drinks and refreshments.
Organizer Lorri Kessler said there is no event like Hats Off to Horses in Greenville.
She said proceeds go to Rocking Horse Ranch's therapeutic riding program.
"They service people of all needs and abilities, but beyond that, they also service volunteers opportunities with the university and through the hospital," Kessler said. "It's not just a program for a couple people with disabilities, it is a program for people of all abilities."
Kessler said the event leads up to the Derby Dash Bash, the ranch's largest fundraiser.
Derby Dash Bash is on May 5.
