- Read about "Jammin' at Jumbolair" here! This is our next big donation push for December 6th. Mark your calendar..
- We need many more donated baskets for the silent auction. Please help buy and sell tables ($500 for 8 folks, includes dinner, wine and beer. Good food and drink for all others at only $30 per person. Everything is upgraded some, as this event venue is more "prestigious" and replaces our usual-yearly hoedown, so attire is now "casual business.". Super entertainment and lots of fun. Get the word out!
- Call Betty at: 352-427-3569, perhaps leave a message. (More info/addresses, etc. here on the Calendar and Newsletter pages).
Stirrups ‘n Strides Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a PATH member (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International). Our center and all programs are taught by PATH Certified Riding Instructors. What makes therapeutic riding "so special?":
The bonding between horse and rider and the relationships with instructors and volunteers has been known to help even "proven to improve" self esteem, self confidence and social interaction. Plus, it's just plain fun for everyone!
For the physically handicapped rider, horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves horses' bodies, naturally mimicking human gait. Studies have shown that therapeutic riding provides the following benefits:
• Psychological bonding
• Lifting of the spirit
• Increased attention span
• Improve balance, posture and flexibility
