)-- Recently, Joyce & Troy Sacco of Generous Property represented their client who purchased a condominium in Downtown Sarasota in the Marina Tower building. As a result of that real estate transaction, a portion of their proceeds will be donated to several local charitable organizations. The first of the donations was recently presented to InStride Equine Therapy.
Located in Nokomis, InStride assists clients with disabilities through hippotherapy. "It is derived from the Greek word "hippos" which means horse. Specially trained physical, occupational and speech therapists use this medical treatment for clients who have movement dysfunction," said Mike Bigner of InStride. Mr. Bigner went on to say, “By partnering with horses, we challenge individuals with special needs to reach their fullest potential.”
Donna Blem, the Executive Director at InStride added, “Children and adults with various diagnoses such as cerebral palsy. Down’s syndrome, developmental delay and many others benefit from InStride programs.” As opposed to therapeutic riding, specific riding skills are not taught at InStride. Hippotherapy lays a foundation to improve mobility, function and sensory processing. Realtor Joyce Sacco said, "We at Generous Property know that donations like this can make a real difference in the lives of people with disabilities and encourage others to support InStride Equine Therapy and their special riders and volunteers.”
