Calling all horse lovers! Chastain Horse Park (CHP) invites its friends, neighbors and the greater Atlanta community to enjoy a day in the country at CHP’s annual Fall Family Spectacular Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Fall Family Spectacular is a free admission event and is not to be missed for anyone who loves horses and a family festival environment. Attractions include a competitive horse show, horse costume parade, horseback archery demonstration, Atlanta Mounted Police horses, petting zoo, guided barn tours to meet the horses, pony rides, face painting, hay bale maze, equine vaulting performance and crafts. Guests can also enjoy food from Chick-Fil-A, Yumbii Korean Taco food truck, Dapper Doughnuts and Kona Ice in addition to hot air popcorn, handspun cotton candy and an old-fashioned Girls Scout bake sale.
CHP is located at 4371 Powers Ferry Road and is in the heart of the Buckhead community of metro Atlanta and offers generous free parking for the event. All proceeds support CHP’s Professional Assocation of Therapeutic Horsemanship International Premiere Accredited Therapeutic Riding Program.
“With 15 percent of the state of Georgia living with a disability, all proceeds will benefit Chastain Horse Park’s nationally recognized Therapeutic Riding Program consisting of Hippo-therapy, Therapeutic Riding, Equine-Assisted Learning and Community Outreach Initiatives,” said Trisha Gross, Director for Chastain Horse Park. “Come out and join us for a day in the country, all for a good cause.”
All are welcomed to attend and see first-hand the impact this acclaimed program has on the community it serves.
