Cavallo and PATH International – A Common Passion
Cavallo Helps Therapeutic Horses Wear Hoof Boots!
We at Cavallo Horse & Rider are proud to announce our continuing sponsorship of PATH: the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International. Cavallo has sponsored the organization, as well as their riding centers, for more than five years.
“Cavallo supports numerous equine charities, rescues, therapy horses and associations. However, PATH Intl. is a very special and unique organization,” says Cavallo CEO Greg Giles. “We are proud to be able to have been involved with PATH Intl. They do such a wonderful job helping people through a connection with horses.”
The People who Inspire
As President of Cavallo, I was asked to select the PATH Intl. Volunteer of the Year from nearly 70,000 volunteers around the world. As an appointed judge, reading through the nominations brought tears to my eyes. These are the people who make the therapeutic riding sessions a reality. They have a passion that elevates their lives and the lives of those they serve. We should all aspire to this level of commitment.
Cavallo is a PATH Intl. Bronze Sponsor (and has been since 2015). We’ve has attended the organization’s international conferences as well as reached out to members through each PATH Intl. Strides magazine publication.
A Word from the Lovely Kaye Marks
We caught up with PATH Intl. Director of Marketing and Communications, Kaye Marks. She says that PATH Intl. “is grateful to Cavallo for its loyalty and generosity as a sponsor and friends of the organization. The missions of Cavallo and PATH Intl. align really beautifully. Equine welfare is of utmost importance to both organizations. The equines who partner with individuals with special needs at PATH Intl. centers are doing seriously important work. Without proper hoof care, they can’t do their best. High-quality Cavallo Saddle Pads are fabulous, and their horse hoof boots promote an economical alternative to traditional metal shoes. This helps us maintain healthy horses. What’s not to love?”
