HEALTHY RIDERS: For more than 20 years, Debby Sabin has worked with children and young adults through her Lovelane special-needs horseback riding program in Lincoln.
On Saturday, the Lincoln resident will host an event to benefit her nonprofit organization while also celebrating the success of its students, whose disabilities range from mild autism to cerebral palsy.
With the theme “Get Your Kicks on Route 66,” Hoedown V will take place from 4 to 9:30 p.m. at Broad Oak Farm, 7 Burgess Lane in Dedham. The biennial event will feature the music of Grammy Award winner Tedeschi Trucks Band and the James Montgomery Blues Band, plus food by more than a dozen notable Boston chefs.
Founded in a Weston barn in 1988, Lovelane has 13 specially trained riding instructors who provide more than 4,400 individual therapeutic riding sessions each year. According to Sabin, the sessions offer participants a sense of freedom and increased confidence, while enhancing their physical, cognitive, and social development.
“We are committed to continuing a program of excellence,” she said, “and making a difference in the lives of our students and their families.”
