Pataskala, OH - PBJ Connections Third Annual Helping Horses Help Kids fundraiser will be held on October 29, 2010 in Columbus, OH. Presented by Bella Vista Equine, a leading equine reproduction clinic, Helping Horses Help Kids will be an unforgettable evening that proves that trick-or-treat is not just for kids. The money raised at this event goes to ensure any child can participate in PBJ Connections programs regardless of their ability to pay.
PBJ Connections was founded in 2006 by two dressage enthusiasts, professional rider and trainer Holly Jedlicka and her business partner and amateur rider, Glenda Childress. PBJ Connections is a 501(c)3 organization working with at-risk youths from central Ohio. They use the clinical approach of Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy which brings together a licensed therapist and a certified horse specialist to help clients develop emotional and behavioral management skills. “We have several horses that we use in sessions with our clients”, said co-founder and Executive Director Glenda Childress, “but we most enjoy working with our dressage horses. They are so playful and gentle with the Children.”
Tickets are still available for PBJ Connection's Third Annual Helping Horses Help Kids, and an amazing silent auction which is also featured on line until Sunday October 24th. All readers of dressagedaily should check out the incredible offers and help out this great organization.
