The horse set trotted up to Covington on Oct. 1 for “The Garden Party,” a fund-raiser that benefited the New Heights Therapy Center. This organization promotes the physical and emotional health of people with disabilities—and one of the programs includes therapeutic horseback riding. Hosted by David Fennelly and Carlos Sanchez at Summergrove Farms, the event included demonstrations by New Heights riders, as well as food, music, an auction and artists who painted on site. The money raised at the party helps New Heights continue its therapeutic horseback riding program, which is conducted at the Folsom Equestrian Center.
