Goucher Equestrian Takes To The Airwaves!

On this past Sunday March 26th,my fellow tri-captain (Goucher’s Equestrian Team has 3 team captains!) Karli Postel ’13 and I joined in the evening broadcast of INSIGHT ON disABILITY at the WCBM AM 680 radio station in Pikesville, MD. We pitched the Goucher Equestrian Team‘s Healing Hooves 2012 event alongside host Michael Gerlach, and charismatic co-hosts Brent Tarring and Harry Cook. Having never been on the radio before, we were naturally incredibly nervous, but anxious to get started.

I have never tuned into AM 680 before, as I tend to habitually listen to CDs and mixtapes instead of the radio when I drive, but after this experience I think I have found a new station to tune into! Michael, Brent, and Harry as well as the entire staff at WCBM were incredibly respectful and Karli and I were honored to get a chance to join the show!

Goucher Equestrian Team’s “Healing Hooves 2012” Event Website Goes Live!

Today, the Goucher Equestrian Team launched a new web initiative for their annual fundraising event ‘Healing Hooves 2012′. The event, which in the past has only been a one-day fundraising initiative transcended its boundaries by offering an online donation method for interested patrons who cannot make it to the official event. Founded as an International Scholars Program project by students Charlotte Kellogg ’12 and Randi Turner ’12, the first official event took place on April 24, 2010 with the aid of 20 volunteers, nine local therapeutic riding programs, and a total of 150 participants. Last year’s event, Healing Hooves 2011 successfully raised just under $2,000 for three local therapeutic centers. It also featured live music and a brand-new ‘no tack’ (no equipment including bridle or saddle) demonstration by Karli Postel ’13 aboard Goucher College’s horse Ghandi. Traditionally, the event has featured a family-friendly fair including riding demonstrations, face painting, grooming stations and other activities to help entertain any children of alumna/alumni attending the event. This year’s event will take place on April 28th from 1 PM until 4 PM at Goucher College’s Equestrian Center.
