It was indeed a Starry, Starry Night for Stable Pathway’s first annual fall fundraiser event. Sarah Thies, Board Member of Stable Pathways and BGS Legal Administrative Assistant said, “It was amazing. Everyone worked so hard to prepare for this night and in the end, it all just fell into place.”
The well attended event included a silent auction, live band, dinner and a program demonstration. The program demonstration displayed some of the many benefits the participants in Stable Pathways receive from equine-assisted activities for people living with physical and cognitive challenges. Therapeutic horseback riding helps riders “organize” body and brain. The horse’s gait is most similar to a human gait so riding provides a connection to a natural rhythmic movement from the horse that stimulated the rider’s body and brain.
“Stable Pathways owns six horses which need both veterinary care and feeding over the coming winter months. The funds raised will go a long way to offset these expenses and necessary costs,” said Sarah, “We are grateful that the event was so successful.”
