GERMANTOWN, Ill. (KMOV.com) -- Economic trouble on a Metro-East farm could mean the end to a non-profit horse-riding center that helps children with disabilities.
For the past six years, children with physical and emotional disabilities have been coming to "Chakota," a therapeutic center founded by the Langenhorst family that allows them to ride horses and overcome obstacles.
Now the Langenhorsts says economic hardship has put the farm, which has been in the family since the 1880's, at risk of foreclosure.
Friends have established an account for contributions to the family under the name "Lang-Mor Stable Trust" at any US Bank.
