Costumed Horses Go Trick-or-Treating

Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center Hosts Halloween Open House


We love it here,” said Amy Wilkinson (right), while she and her daughter, Charlotte, enjoyed trick-or-treating with horses in costume last week at Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center. “We’ve been supporting this place for years.” The center’s second annual Halloween Spooktacular featured a horse costume contest, face painting, and more. The donations collected during the open-house event benefit the organization, which has been helping individuals of all abilities in Santa Barbara County through equine therapy since 1985.
