Pompano Beach held its Annual Halloween Fair and Horse Show at Sand and Spurs Equestrian Park. The event included a custom show on horseback, face painting, hayrides and bounce house. It was also a chance to socialize and learn about the various programs offered by Bit-By-Bit.

“We offer horse therapy programs for people with autism, cerebral palsy and other developmental disorders,” said Executive Director Kathleen Pegues of Bit-By-Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. She helped run the event. “We also work with wounded veterans. Horseback riding stimulates the muscles, improves balance and coordination and stimulates breathing. It is an excellent form of exercise for people with disabilities and for people who want a good form of exercise.”

Cristina Boariu enjoyed the event. She especially liked being a part of the costume horse show. She celebrated her birthday with her friends.
