Musical Event to Help “At-Risk” Youth

Local musicians collaborate to help “at-risk” youth through horseback riding

Concert and Dinner, March 10th 2013, 6:00-9:30pm

SOhO Restaurant & Club

The concert, designed to appeal to a diverse audience, will raise funds to give kids who have been neglected or abused an empowering experience on horseback this summer. The musicians include the inimitable Lois Mahalia, Stephen Styles, Gib Foss, Patty Castillo, Peter Claydon, Bob Rea and guests.

“Collaborations” was named to honor a 4-year partnership between Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center, CALM (Child Abuse Listening and Mediation), and the Santa Barbara Youth Project. These three organizations collaborate to give deserving kids, ages 8-14, a full week of horseback riding and horsemanship activities at Hearts each summer.

Summer horse camp makes a huge difference in the lives of our community’s most vulnerable children because horses help heal the hurt they have experienced.

The SBYP is dedicated to supporting disadvantaged children by sponsoring them to attend week-long, summer horse camps. Visit to learn more and to purchase dinner & concert tickets.
