On Saturday, April 23, ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship will transform its site into a family-friendly carnival and raceway-themed showcase of its equestrian therapy programs during the Sixth Annual Gaitapalooza.

The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 3160 N. Custer Rd. in McKinney. Attendees can watch riders demonstrating their equestrian abilities while also enjoying activities including bounce houses, face painting, a petting zoo, food trucks and more. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the barns and meet the horses.

Our riders will have the opportunity to take a ride outside the arena by raising funds to sponsor their trail rides. Be sure to help your favorite rider or riders fundraise by sharing their personal donation page with friends and family. Every rider that signs up for Gaitapalooza has the goal of raising $1,000.

Admission is $5 at the door for children (adult admission is free). For more information call 469-742-9611 or visit
