Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing plans Derby Day fundraiser

Record Observer - - Obituaries -

GRASONVILLE — Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing will com­bine beauty, cul­ture, tra­di­tion and, of course, a Run for the Roses this Derby Day at its fifth an­nual ben­e­fit party on May 7.

Vis­i­tors will be treated to a trip back in time as they en­ter the beau­ti­ful, his­toric Manor House, dat­ing back to 1934 the year Cal­val­cade and jockey Mack Garner won the big race. Ladies dressed in finely adorned hats and gen­tle­men in seer­sucker suits can sip mint juleps while they soak in the old time at­mos­phere in the li­brary, the ball­room and the gen­tle­man’s bar. “Cally Ho,” the 215-year-old leather horse, will also be on hand, lend­ing a bit of lo­cal history to the Grasonville event.

Tal­is­man rid­ers will show off their skills and tech­niques in an af­ter­noon demon­stra­tion on the grounds of the pic­turesque horse farm, nes­tled on Mary­land’s Eastern Shore along the Ch­e­sa­peake Bay.

Items like a unique ster­ling sil­ver and onyx bracelet and a day with rare Paso Fino horses will be avail­able at a live auc­tion. A silent auc­tion will of­fer many lux­ury items, tours and overnight ad­ven­tures.

And of course, with all bets placed, the Ken­tucky Derby race will com­mence pre­cisely at 6:34 p.m.

Doors open at 4 and tick­ets can be pur­chased by call­ing the farm of­fice at 443-239-9400 or at www.tal­is­man­ther­a­peu­ti­crid­ing.org.

Tal­is­man Ther­a­peu­tic Rid­ing pro­vides a unique form of heal­ing through the use of horses and na­ture. The herd of six shares nur­tur­ing bonds with chil­dren, fam­i­lies and veter­ans, which im­prove peo­ple’s lives and help to soothe those with phys­i­cal and emo­tional needs. TTR pro­vides more than 3,200 lessons an­nu­ally.
