Stella Therapy Riding Announces Riding Showcase
Come Cheer on Those with Special Needs as They Show Off Their Equestrian Skills
Pompton Plains, NJ - February 4, 2013 – Stella Therapy Riding is pleased to announce that it is holding its Winter Riding Showcase at the North Jersey Equestrian Center in Pompton Plains, NJ on Saturday, March 2nd at 6:30 p.m. The event is co-sponsored by Autism Radio, and will last approximately two hours.
Stella Therapy Riding, a NJ Non-Profit Corporation, is dedicated to helping children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities through horseback riding. The benefits of therapeutic riding have been recognized for many years. It is a proven method of increasing the physical, mental, emotional and developmental capabilities for individuals with disabilities, functional limitations or medical issues. There is a healing interaction between horses, riders and the people who help them.
“All of our students really look forward to the opportunity to ride in front of their family and friends,” said Stella Therapy Riding Executive Director Lisa Gephardt. “And we are once again thrilled to partner with Autism Radio, an organization that is dedicated to improve the lives of those diagnosed with autism, as well as their family and friends.”
"I continue to be amazed by the work that Stella Therapy Riding undertakes day in and day out," said Paul Cimins, Founder of Autism Radio. “The commitment they have to their students, as well as the knowledge and understanding of their staff is what really sets this program apart in my mind.”
Autism Radio is the producer of award-winning syndicated broadcast, “Hope Saves the Day.” which can be heard locally on 103.7FM or streamed from autismradio.org.
Families interested in learning more about therapeutic riding, as well as people who may be interested in volunteering in the riding program, are invited to attend this very special evening. The event is free, refreshments will be served, and various equestrian merchandise will be available for purchase.
