On Sunday, October 2, 2022, the 16th Annual Lehman Engineers Horse Trail Ride and Trail Walk was held to benefit Dreams Go On, which provides therapeutic horseback riding sessions to children and young adults in Blair County, PA. This event took place at Canoe Creek State Park and is a unique event which brings horse and trail walking enthusiasts together for a great cause.
Horseback riders were guided by Karen Kurtz, lead therapeutic horseback riding instructor at Dreams Go On, and trail walkers were invited to walk the trails as a group. Riders and walkers also had the pleasure of meeting Elliott Sheetz. Elliott is an 11-year-old who loves to learn and ride horses. Dreams Go On has been a part of Elliott’s life for over six years and he continues to challenge himself by riding different horses. His goal is to ride on a more independent basis. Elliott is the son of Ryan and Julie Sheetz. The 2023 Dreams Go On Ambassador is Hank Bumbarger. Hank is the son of Lindsay and Mickey Bumbarger of Altoona.
Currently, volunteers are always needed at the therapeutic horseback Dreams GO On facility located on Turkey Valley Road, Hollidaysburg, PA.
