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.

An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
The Watershed Butterfly Festival, presented by the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association, will teach families about their local environment. Kids can get face to antennae with butterflies and other insects at the insect zoo, and families can explore nature on hayrides, walks, and at the festival's interactive enviro-zones. After learning all about a butterfly's lifecycle and rambling along on a trail, guests can take in the fest's butterfly parade. Other entertainment will include live music from Grammy-nominated kids' artist Miss Amy and classic rock from The Dadz. Food and art will also be available from local artisans.
