LANCASTER - The Four Harmony Foundation, based at Pine Knoll Farm, is bringing in some top names in the equine industry for a fund-raising gala Friday and Sept. 28.
"Our goal is to create awareness of the healing power of the horse," said Gillian Vallis of Pine Knoll.
That "healing power" is about the unique relationship between humans and horses, Vallis said. "They are our mirror. Through the way they react, we learn about ourselves," she said.
"Pink Sands and Bluegrass," on Friday will help provide support for the equine services provided at Pine Knoll Farm. According to the Four Harmony Foundation Web site, "it will be a magical evening that incorporates the mood, music and food of both the pink sands of Bermuda and the bluegrass of Kentucky." Included in the evening fare will be a silent auction for a three-day stay at the "Reefs" hotel in Bermuda.
The "In Honor of the Horse" symposium Friday and Sept. 28 will feature over a dozen nationally and internationally known equine experts, said Vallis. "The caliber of speakers is way up there," she said.
