The Helping Horse therapeutic riding program was founded in 1989 to serve physically, mentally, and emotionally disabled youth throughout Wake County. Their focus is to provide a therapeutic experience for individual riders by combining riding skills with games and activities to enhance their strength and balance, all while having lots of fun!
Most of what they offer happens to be on horseback. This makes for an exciting experience interacting with large and loving animals. Helping Horse also offers ground lessons, like grooming and tacking, so that the riders get a chance to understand what it takes to care for the horses.
The Helping Horse Therapeutic Riding Program also has an ultimate goal. They strive to make sure that each program improves the rider’s quality of life. They aim to help people become more independent and productive so they too can be active members of the community.
Helping Horse recently hosted a fundraising gala event that was held at The Oaks at Salem. Catering by Design was so honored to be chosen to provide the food for this great event, and we wanted to share some of our favorite pictures from this wonderful night.

We started guests out with a beautiful table of hors d’oeuvres set up on an old and rustic wagon. Guests enjoyed Grilled Pita, Tuscan and Focaccia Breads served with Red Pepper Hummus, Tomato Basil and a Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip.
Imported and Domestic Cheeses were also available and paired with an assortment of Gourmet Crackers and Seasonal Fruit.
For dinner, we provided a grand buffet featuring some of our favorite menu items. A beautiful Baby Green Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumbers, and Carrots led the way, finished with our homemade Balsamic Basil dressing on the side.
The sides consisted of a savory Saute Vegetable Medley along with a creamy Penne Pasta with Portobello, and Roasted Peppers in a Basil Cream Sauce, and fresh baked Dinner Rolls. The main dish was a heavenly Chicken Breast stuffed with Spinach, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and White Cheddar in a heavy cream sauce.
For dessert, we served homemade Miniature Eclairs and Gluten Free Chocolate Cake that was paired with a Raspberry Sauce on the side.
