Dancing with Horses
It’s hard coping with an illness or an injury no matter what age you are. It’s been proven that animals can be an incredible therapeutic companion for those who are trying to recover and can accelerate the recovery process. Whether it’s a dog, a cat, a rat (eek!) or a horse, animals have infinite patience and compassion which is exactly what humans need.
Windrush Farms is an incredible nonprofit horse farm specializing in teaching physically, emotionally, and learning disabled children and adults to ride and work with horses. From recreational programs for children and adults without special needs, to Equine Assisted Activities including Therapeutic Riding to one-on-one Hippotherapy, the staff and the horses at Windrush have devoted over 47 years to providing life-changing experiences while encouraging and teaching others to do the same.
This Saturday November 12th is the annual Dancing with Horses Gala to benefit the farm and help fund all of the incredible programs and experiences they offer to over 1,000 people each year. This year, the gala is being held at Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge and tickets start at $195.00 which includes an evening of appetizers and cocktails, open bar, silent and live auction, and dining and dancing. (Just a reminder, they are auctioning off a Tuscan Villa and a Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup jersey signed by the team!)
Sperry is proud to be a sponsor for this incredible event. We’re encouraging everyone to pony-up the cash for the tickets and join in on the festivities! For more information on this event, the sponsors, the auction items and more, check out their website or take a look at some of the photos from last year.
