Michael Scotto Memorial Foundation Adopts Horse For Pal-O-Mine Equestrian

 

The Michael Scotto Memorial Foundation Adopts a Horse for Pal-O-Mine Equestrian 

Pal-O-Mine Equestrian, Inc. (www.pal-o-mine.org, Islandia, NY), a private, not for profit organization providing a comprehensive therapeutic equine program using horses to facilitate growth, learning and healing for children and adults with disabilities, recently benefitted from a $10,500 grant by the Michael Scotto Memorial Foundation. Through its donation, the Foundation has adopted “King” as part of Pal-O-Mine’s “Adopt a Horse” program. King is a Brown Dun-colored, 13-year old Norwegian Fjord and one of Pal-O-Mine’s herd of equine teachers.

“Our horses are the heartbeat of our equine programs,” said Pal-O-Mine Equestrian CEO Lisa Gatti. “They are attuned to the feelings of the student, nonjudgmental and serve to empower individuals whether working through the challenges of a disability, a traumatic stress, abuse or other life circumstances where equine therapy has proven to be one of the most effective learning programs. The Michael Scotto Memorial Foundation’s generous contribution will go toward feeding and caring for King. Time and again, this organization has supported us with its generosity.”
