Seeking support for GAIT

Letter to the Editor

GAIT Therapeutic Riding Center is a gem in our community that many people do not know about. Located on Foster Hill Road in Milford; GAIT TRC, is an established non-profit, service-oriented organization that has provided equine therapy services for nearly 3 decades for children and adults with special needs, adults and teens with mental health challenges, and those dealing with trauma and PTSD.

The GAIT Advisory Council was developed to increase community awareness of GAIT’s programs and services. The Council created the GAIT-ACE Endowment Fund, through the Greater Pike Community Foundation, to provide scholarships to individuals so that they may participate in GAIT activities and programs.

The Council needs the communities’ support to fulfill its mission. On Saturday, October 1st we are hosting a “Barn Dance” at Peter’s Europa House in Shohola, PA. The doors will open at 5:30 and it will include dinner, music and dancing by the Pushin Country Line Dancers. We hope you will join us. Individual tickets are $75. All proceeds will benefit GAIT TRC and the GAIT-ACE Endowment Fund. This is a closed event and tickets must be purchased in advance. Tickets may be bought on the home page of GAIT’s website at or by dropping a check in a locked mailbox marked “122 Tower” on the corner of Chippy Cole and Tower Dr, just past Milford Animal Hospital.

Thank you in advance for your support.

GAIT Advisory Council
