As clients enter the Special Equestrians barn or engage in unmounted therapy work, they are greeted by Suzie, a 24-year-old shetland mare. Suzie is the organization's smallest pony, and while she is no longer able to do mounted work, she still engages in unmounted therapy and has become an ambassador for the organization. While Special Equestrians endeavors to keep lesson and events costs down for its clients, the organization struggles to cover the costs of hay, grain, and general horse care. As Suzie ages, her health problems and increasing medical expenses make caring for her financially difficult. Special Equestrians is in need of additional funding to continue to keep Suzie healthy with food, dental care, and health supplements.
For many galleries, art is something that resides behind a velvet rope, separated and unaccessible to its viewers. For the curators of Abington Art Center, it is something to be experienced, enjoyed, and, above all, created oneself. Located on the 27-acre expanse of Alverthorpe Manor, the center hosts classes and workshops for students of all ages and exhibitions of community artists. The outdoor Sculpture Park captures the center's sense of playful creation, inviting sculptors to craft their own temporary installations each year—this also helps erase the temptation to carve a mustache into a nearby town's statue of its mayor. The guest artists are encouraged to have their creations respond to the nature around them, such as massive faces carved from tree trunks. Inside the mansion, one can find galleries of young creators and solo exhibitions by professional artists.
Garnering a rating of 46.4 out of 50 skulls from the users of Hauntworld, LuLu's House of Horrors takes its victims through wood, house, and field to witness the depraved acts of its live cast. Foolhardy pairs begin their trip by boarding a wagon that creakily traverses through moonlit woods, stopping periodically to interact with the forest’s shadowy denizens. The group then is dumped at the entrance to the deadly graveyard–a horrifying ordeal that must be navigated before coming upon the house itself, filled with dire sights and novel scares. Once travelers flee from the eerie domicile, the wagon picks them up, only to thrust them into a corn maze, which they must escape by their wits alone or risk being harvested by a possessed combine come spring. Those who find their way back to the safety of the arena can avail themselves of the snack bar's food, including hot dogs, pizza, and apple cider (not included in today's Groupon).

Culinary craftsmen at Fingers, Wings and Other Things grease ravenous fingers with hand-battered chicken tenderloins and zesty buffalo wings gracefully dunked into more than 12 homemade dipping sauces. The vibrant menu entices eyeteeth with handheld munchies such as fried pickles, mac 'n' cheese wedges, or buffalo shrimp glazed in mild, spicy, or extra-spicy sauce hot enough to garner a centerfold spread in Condiment Monthly. Guests can count their chickens before they're devoured with a basket of 10 fingers or 20 wings bedecked in a choice of savory sauces, including three types of barbecue, horseradish mayo, and honey mustard. A selection of seafood and chicken entrees heads up the main event with tasty picks such as the beer-battered fish 'n' chips platter or the grilled shrimp and chicken skewers, which unite meaty morsels more conveniently than a mailbox full of pork chops.
Taste of Fall treats Philadelphia denizens to a crisp autumn afternoon of cooking demonstrations by local chefs, wine and beer flowing freely for the tasting, and scrumptious samples from more than 15 local restaurant and farm vendors. Nibble on a gyro from Zorba's Taverna, test how many Iced by Betsy cupcakes you can fit in your mouth at once, or amiably haggle over the harvests of local farmers. A kids’ tent will pulsate with activities such as face painting, as well as yoga to appease antsy pre-teens and post-babies. The "Man Cave," meanwhile, will set the scene for budding bromances by broadcasting the Eagles vs. Redskins game. A live performance of classic covers by Back2Life will contribute to the convivial atmosphere. And to add an element of surprise that doesn't involve firing blowdarts into the crowd at random, Taste of Fall will give ticketholders a chance to win a number of spectacular raffle items. You and your family might head home with a hefty gift basket from Saks Fifth Avenue, a cooking class at Viking, or a one-night stay at Rittenhouse Bed & Breakfast with dinner at Baia and a bottle of wine.
