We at Haley Buick GMC know the value of helping the community. If it weren’t for the Richmond, VA area and all of the wonderfully diverse folks within, we could not exist.

One of the groups within our community that really deserves special attention is the Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center, located off of Old Buckingham Road in Powhatan Co.

Truly a non-profit, they thrive solely from volunteer efforts and private donations with the mission of bringing wounded veterans from McGuire Woods VA Medical Center a chance to regain their strength and courage to live a normal life with honor and dignity.

Founded in January, 2008, they have already helped over 840 veterans do so.

From stable-hands to facility maintenance… even people to serve lunch, volunteers are needed year round to keep the program on this 7-acre facility running smoothly.

While many say they proudly support our troops at home and abroad, those involved with Lonesome Dove Equestrian Center get to experience first-hand the thrill of giving back to a soldier who had sacrificed for their country.
