Rancho Tujunga hosts a special


fund-raising horse show event on May 19! Mark your calendars for the Let’s Ride Therapy Horse Show & Fundraiser, which will feature both English and western pleasure classes with fees that are just $10 or $15 per class. There also will be a tack sale and lunch! Located in Tujunga and founded by Ann Marriner, the program specializes in helping adults and children with emotional and developmental disorders or disabili- ties. It off ers participants an opportunity to improve their at ention spans, concentration, memory, and language skill development through the use of specially trained horses. A horse’s gaits and rhythmic movement help riders of all types improve balance, muscle control and tone, as well as motor develop- ment and coordination, balance, posture, strength and overall body awareness. Horses also help them to learn to bet er communi- cate with the people in their lives. Now in its eighth year, Let’s Ride has


stepped up fundraising eff orts with horse shows and it developed additional programs for kids (summer camps) and corporations (team building, company communication programs)—all with the goal of off ering more low-cost and free services to our disabled community. Close to Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena, we welcome all clients. Learn more about our programs, volunteer opportunities and horses at www. laequinetherapy.org. See ad on page 37.
