ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship Hosts 15th Annual Gala

Posted In: Events

Mustang Lakes is a proud supporter of ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship, a local nonprofit providing equine therapy to children and adults with disabilities. Located just down the road from Mustang Lakes, ManeGait has grown into a nationally recognized therapeutic riding center over the past 15 years.

The annual Gala at the ‘Gait is an important fundraising event for the organization scheduled to take place on Saturday, Oct. 22, at 6:30 p.m. Learn more about ManeGait and the important work they do in the community!

ManeGait’s Mission

Founded in 2007 with just two horses and four riders, ManeGait is now home to 30 horses and serves 150 individuals with disabilities each week.

Priscilla and Bill Darling, philanthropic members of the DFW community and original partners of the esteemed Darling Homes residential homebuilding company, founded ManeGait to help kids and adults with disabilities move beyond boundaries through the healing power of the horse.

All riders receive riding lessons led by PATH Certified Instructors and are supported by trained volunteer horse leaders and sidewalkers.

2022 Gala at the ‘Gait

Funds raised during Gala at the ‘Gait directly support the care of the horses, maintenance of the 24-acre facility and fund the organization’s programs to help offset the true cost of equine therapy.

Each year at the Gala, ManeGait transforms its covered arena into a banquet hall showcasing views of a gorgeous sunset and grazing horses. Guests will enjoy entertainment including singer-songwriter Jenna Paulette and the Manhattan band, dancing, a charity auction and delicious food from premier DFW restaurants.

Attire for the night is “western elegant,” or something you feel comfortable and fabulous in! Closed-toe, low-heel shoes or boots are also recommended.

Tickets can be purchased online ranging from $250 for general admission to $5,000-$15,000 for sponsorship packages. Admission to the Gala includes complementary valet parking, live entertainment, participation in the live and silent auctions, and a “taste of” dinner with beer and wine selections.

Support ManeGait

If you are unable to attend Gala at the ‘Gait this year, the organization always accepts donations online to help subsidize costs for rider families and make sure no rider is turned away due to financial hardship.

Mustang Lakes is honored to be a supporter of ManeGait’s vital work in the community. Situated on the Celina-Prosper border moments from McKinney and Frisco, Mustang Lakes is an award-winning DFW community featuring the largest amenity center in North Texas and new construction homes by top DFW home builders.
