I wish to have a pen for my horse

Maggie Joe is very energetic and loves animals!

When Make-A-Wish Mid-South volunteers went to visit 4 year-old Maggie Joe and her family, they instantly fell in love with her! Maggie Joe is very talkative, energetic and animated. She loves animals and the outdoors, whether it is camping swimming, riding her bike, or relaxing on the beach. She even has her own miniature horse!

So when Maggie Joe found out that her wish for a horse pen/corral was being granted, she was ecstatic! Having a corral gave her the freedom to ride Madge, her mini horse, at home.

The day her wish came true, Maggie Joe and her family arrived at Oaklawn Park Race Track in Hot Springs, where she was honored with a special horse race in her name! Afterwards, she visited the announcer's booth and was given a genuine racing clock and photo collage in order to commemorate the occasion. Maggie Joe then got to meet the jockeys in the Winner's Circle and received both the winning jockey's goggles and trophies to take home!

Every person (and animal) involved in this wish not only made Maggie Joe's wish come true, but exceeded all expectations. The day was definitely one that Little Maggie Joe and her family will remember forever.
