On Sunday, Oct. 26, Northern Michigan Equine Therapy will host its inaugural pumpkin carving fundraiser. This event is open to families, future clients and all community members. The fundraiser takes place at the facility at 05025 Church Road, Boyne City, at the corner of Horton Bay and Church roads.
This event has something for all ages. Aside from pumpkin carving, there is pumpkin bowling, farm animals, many games, trick or treating, and the spooky horse aisle way. With your creative pumpkin carving talents, your pumpkin will be proudly displayed in the ultimate jack-o’-lantern light exhibit. All pumpkins are provided, though donations to participate in all activities are appreciated.
There is a silent auction, with funds going to scholarships and maintenance of horses and facility. Items include a horseback riding lesson, art, gift baskets, local business gift certificates and a lot more.
While using a horse as the primary treatment tool, the facility provides occupational, physical and speech therapy services. Its programs use the natural movement and demeanor of a horse to help with physical and mental disabilities. The business announced a new program called HorseSense. HorseSense uses a horse as a natural therapist to bring out confidence in everyday life. This belief is the backbone to the facility's programs.
