News 12 New Jersey: Pony Power Therapies
August 12, 2015 12:22 PM
HackensackUMC is connecting patients at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital with the benefits of Pony Power Therapies, a nonprofit organization which
provides therapeutic riding and other horse-assisted activities to special needs and at-risk populations. Tucked in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains, pediatric patients and their families ride horses, learn about organic farming and beekeeping and leave their mark in the form of handprints on fence boards dotting the farm. The Pony Power sessions are funded by a portion of the proceeds from the 2015 Susan Zabransky Hughes Memorial 5K Run/Walk sponsored by the HackensackUMC Foundation.
