3rd Annual Hearts & Hooves Benefit
September 11, 2021

The event, hosted by Karin’s Horse Connection, attracts children and adults from all over the West Michigan area.  Proceeds from the event support Therapeutic Riding and Adaptive Vaulting scholarships. Our goal is to raise $16,500 which will provide 6 months of weekly lessons for 20 students.

Our Therapeutic Riding and Adaptive Vaulting program is offered one-on-one to individuals of ALL ages and abilities. Riders/Vaulters can ride at the halt, walk, trot or canter. Some riders will ride with a traditional saddle and reins, while others will use special vaulting equipment: a comfortable, non-slippery pad on the horse’s back, and a surcingle with two big handles. In addition, we use side walkers as needed and occasionally a back rider for safety and instruction. Most students quickly relax and harmonize with the horse, gaining balance, coordination, and body strength through the constant stimulation of countless muscles. All sorts of exercises, provide a variety and sense of achievement, which is a great boost for the rider’s self-esteem–not to mention the FUN!

The mission of Karin’s Horse Connection is to share our passion for horses and enable anyone who seeks to experience the joy of the human-horse connection.
