Ditch the diamonds and tuxedo! Throw on your cowboy boots and denim and head out to the 10th annual Marty’s Barn Party benefiting Equestrian Connection this Saturday, sponsored by Sheridan Road and Forest & Bluff. Tucked away on ten acres off Bradley Road in Lake Forest, Equestrian Connection is a special place where anyone can ride, no matter what challenges they face. With a primary focus on hippotherapy and therapeutic riding, Equestrian Connection offers services and supports for children and adults with needs, whether physical, psychological, emotional or medical. This year’s Barn Party marks 10 years of “Heroes, Hope & Healing.” Among those heroes is Marty Domitrovich, whose vision and resources helped to get Equestrian Connection’s programs and facilities off the ground.
