Longtime Therapeutic Equestrian Center team member Garth was honored with the 2021 Heart of the Horse Award.

WATERVLIET — Earlier this month, Therapeutic Equestrian Center awarded a longtime team member, Garth, with its Heart of the Horse Award.

The Heart of the Horse Award was established by Cathy and Bill Alwine in 2013, as a way to honor their own horse, Boru, who had a heart as big as he was. Boru stood 17.1 hands high and embodied a kind, gentle spirit.
