Therapeutic Riding Center

We thought with all the recent blogging about funny news stories and unique toilets we could use this post to give you an update on our Community Giving Program. Last time we blogged about it we had donated to the local West Hazleton Fire Company. With that being a huge success our next project was Adopting A Horse from the Horses & Horizons Therapeutic Riding Center.

Horses & Horizons is located in Tamaqua, PA and is a non-profit organization. This program is staffed by volunteers and the owners (Harvey & Elaine Smith) who cover all the operating expenses by fundraising and receiving donations.

Horses & Horizons is a program for children and adults who have a wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. The therapeutic riding center helps with coordination, balance, posture, attention span, concentration, speech, learning, and the forming of interpersonal relationships.

Vintage Tub and Bath recently made a donation to the Adpot-A-Horse-Program for this center and was named the proud parent of "Monkey Biz" a 26 year old horse that's been involved in the program since he was four years old.

Looking to get involved? There are many volunteer opportunities and ways to give. This week (July 9th-13th) there is a Horses & Horizons Summer Day Camp and volunteers are needed! You can also donate any amount or even sponsor your own horse.
