On September 24th, Mane and Taill Therapeutic Horsemanship Academy in Jarvisburg hosted a regional Special Olympics horse show, with 20 athletes competing from Dare, Currituck, Camden, and Pasquotank counties.
The North Carolina Special Olympics equestrian horse show was held in Tryon this year, instead of Raleigh, which unfortunately made it not feasible for the local horses and athletes to travel.
Mane and Taill Therapeutic Horsemanship Academy wanted to make sure the athletes were able to participate in the horse show that they worked so hard for. These athletes practiced all summer and some even practice year round for the horse show.
Coaches for the show were Samantha Iulo, Frances Danner, Angie Walker and Kim McGee, with Sara Brodeur serving as judge. The show was a great success and all the athletes had a great time.
