On Saturday October 20th approximately 2,000 people attended the annualBit-By-Bit Therapeutic Riding Center’s Halloween Festival and Horse Show at Sand & Spurs Equestrian Park in Pompano Beach.

Bit-By-Bit raised 80% of their goal of $25,000 in donations from local businesses who sponsored the event, such as Moss and Associates, Bobby Rubino’s Restaurant, First Sign Printing, Liberty Tax Service, and Corporate Property Services. Donations and corporate sponsorships are still being accepted in order to reach their goal.

All donations provide therapeutic services to disabled children or veterans as part of their “Horses For Heroes” Veteran Rehabilitation program. This event featured pony rides, carnival games, hay rides, costume contests for kids and horses, and 50 horseback riders both disabled and able bodied.

Bit-By-Bit provides hippotherapy, or medical treatments with the help of the horse, every day at the park and more information can be seen at www.bitbybittherapy.org. Bit-By-Bit is always looking for fun-loving volunteers and can be reached at 954-802-8874.
