Last Friday, April 1st was the London Knight’s last game of the season. Congratulations on such an amazing season and game! We teamed up with SARI Therapeutic Riding to raise funds for children and adults with disabilities through equine programs.
SARI is an amazing organization that was founded in 1978 in memory of Sari Greenberg. She was born with Down Syndrome, and at that time children with disabilities were often put in care. Her parents Syd and Jeanne took the opportunity to create a loving and therapeutic environment which is now where SARI farm stands. Through the love of animals and compassion for others, SARI has grown to be a beautiful organization that has 20 horses and over 15 staff members!
According to a CBC news article about horse therapy they state, “...feeling the physical cadence of a horse can stimulate one’s muscles and spine. Based on what they’ve (horse therapists) seen, horseback riding helps with motor skills, balance, coordination, and physical rehabilitation.”
These extraordinary creatures are known for their calming demeanor. And because of their herding instincts, they also adjust themselves according to human emotion. SARI’s 20 beautiful horses not only provide therapy to children and adults, but they also form strong bonds.
With the help of the amazing Sari volunteers, we were able to raise over $8,000 for Sari Therapeutic Riding! To learn more about SARI Therapeutic Riding visit their website at: https://www.sari.ca/
