HICKMAN, Neb. (AP) — Comedian Larry the Cable Guy has donated $250,000 to help build a barn to support equine therapy southeast of Lincoln.

The donation will help The Still Waters Equestrian Academy expand its horseback riding therapy program. The barn near Hickman will house an indoor arena.

Larry the Cable Guy, whose real name is Dan Whitney, says he and his wife both like horses and wanted to support the program.

Char Cole with the equestrian group says the donation will help her organization serve more individuals with disabilities and their families.
