I don’t usually do an outright ask on the blog. And I will not do it often. This is an ask for help with our new horse dancing project, All the Pretty Horses.
Since I started working with rescued horses, it has been my dream to create a performance with these “throw away” horses and local dancers. We have now found the perfect partnering organization, Little Brook Farm in Old Chatham, New York.
Little Brook has been saving horses for many, many years. The unique part of their program is that these horses then become active, participating partners in a range of activities: riding, performing, vaulting, jumping and teaching generations of children and adults about horses and all of the ways that we can connect with them.
A visit there is moving. It is a humble place, staffed by passionate and dedicated volunteers. The effort goes into the programs, into the care of the horses, and into sharing the joy of horses with humans from age three to the sky is the limit.
In order to bring the project to fruition, we need to raise $3500 to offset fees and travel for the professional dancers from my company who travel from Boston. Those funds are also for publicity, costumes and modest administrative costs to assure that the event is a rousing success.
The performance will take place October 6 at Little Brook Farm in Old Chatham, NY. Mark your calendars!!!
