Did you know that one of the largest therapeutic riding centers in the country is located right in our backyard? Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center in Bainbridge supports roughly 750 students annually, from preschoolers to veterans. Through a special partnership with horses, Fieldstone offers programs designed by professionals to foster personal growth and individual achievement for people with disabilities.
Think about it – this program is responsible for giving kids the opportunity to get out of their wheelchair, take first steps or talk for the first time. That is simply amazing.
If you agree, here’s your chance to help. The center has its major fundraising initiative coming up in a few weeks and it’s sure to appeal to many. It’s a tasting dinner held on their grounds, the prestigious Chagrin Valley Hunt Club Polo Field, on September 15th. Participating chefs include: Jonathan Sawyer, Scott Kuhn, Chris Hodgson, Matt Mytro, Nate Barker and Jeff Jarrett.
The chefs will prepare a seasonal tasting dinner. In addition to cocktails and passed appetizers, guests will sample a number of dishes from stations around the tent during the evening, and top off the night with a special dessert.
The Cleveland Jazz Orchestra will supply the music for the night and there will also be horse drawn wagon rides through nearby Gates Mills. Tickets to the event range from $125 up and include a tax deductible donation to Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center. Visit here to learn more and purchase tickets.
