Lorenzo Driving Competition to benefit therapeutic riding program
By Willie Kiernan
Well-dressed horses and carriages will grace the picturesque setting of the Lorenzo State Historic Site for the 32nd annual Lorenzo Driving Competition this weekend July 19 and 20.
Along with regular show, the Lorenzo Driving Competition show committee will be hosting a silent auction from which all proceeds will go to benefit From The Ground Up, a local equine therapeutic riding program.
"From The Ground Up is dedicated to helping each individual achieve the highest level of independence that he/she is safely capable of and translating that into other aspects of life," from the web site.
Numerous items, some that are equestrian in nature and many that will appeal to the general public will be offered at the silent auction. The home base for this therapeutic riding program is just west of Cazenovia in Jamesville, at the Windy Hill Stables. To learn more about From The Ground Up, consult their web site: FTGUhorses.org.
According to this year's organizers, Lisa Shotzberger and Molly Per, even though the event has changed during its 32 year running, a constant theme that has remained is the quality of horses, competitors, and the camaraderie that they all share.
