From new horses, to new programs, to a new look for our newsletter; Manes & Motions is welcoming in 2019 with a renewed sense of empowerment. Check out our 2018 fundraising successes thanks to our generous supporters, a new program promoting academic engagement and more.
New Faces (and Hooves) at Manes & Motions
We welcomed four new hires in 2018. Say hi to,
Ava Lee, Barn Assistant,
Kara Tedford, PATH Registered Instructor, ESMHL,
Lisa Valko, Barn Assistant and
Val Zajac, Barn Assistant!
We also welcomed Jimmy, a new horse to our therapy herd this past fall. Jimmy came from Fairfield County. In his previous career he was a fox hunting horse. Jimmy is gentle and well trained, and we feel he will be a big asset to our 11-horse, herd.
