Pal-O-Mine Equestrian Awarded $25,000 from The Clark Gillies Foundation

Pal-O-Mine Equestrian (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, was recently awarded $25,000 from The Clark Gillies Foundation (www.clarkgillies.org) to be used for students with neurological disorders.

Pal-O-Mine founder and Executive Director Lisa Gatti said, “This incredibly generous contribution from the Clark Gillies Foundation will be extremely valuable in enabling us to provide more students with serious neurological disorders the opportunity to benefit from our various equine therapy programs. Horses are very sensitive and empathetic beings. For individuals with such conditions as autism, pervasive development disorder, attention deficit disorder, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury,  multiple sclerosis and  many other neurological and developmental disorders , as well as behavioral problems, they can be a tremendous resource. Clinical research has shown that being in the company of horses actually changes human brainwave patterns and create a very positive effect.”
