Coldwell Banker Traditions and Brooks Real Estate Adopt Therapy Horse

WILLIAMSBURG, Virginia - Accustomed to helping people settle into new homes, this time, a philanthropic realty team is helping a therapy horse settle into her new home. Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center announces the $5,000 sponsorship of therapy horse Heidi Belle by Coldwell Banker Traditions and Brooks Real Estate.

Shown in this video, Heidi Belle, is an 11-year-old Belgian Quarter Horse cross. Heidi was trained as a therapeutic riding horse with a specialty in interactive vaulting camps before joining the Dream Catchers' herd in August. The sponsorship underwrites the feed, hay, supplements, some tack, daily care, farrier fees and veterinarian wellness plan for one of the therapeutic riding center's most popular horses for one full year. The Coldwell Banker Traditions and Brooks Real Estate logo is featured on Heidi's saddle pad and halter so the Center's students, volunteers and visitors are aware of the support provided. Whenever Heidi travels to participate in student riding demonstrations or media appearances, she proudly wears her logoed saddle pad and halter.

Established in 1885, Coldwell Banker Traditions and Brooks Real Estate have a long history of community caring. This past June, the philanthropic organization hosted Williamsburg's inaugural Country Fair to raise funds for Dream Catchers. Over time they've donated $14,000 to this nonprofit and this summer, John Wilson, principal broker and owner, joined Dream Catchers' board of directors.

"We continue to be amazed and grateful to the genuine, caring team at Coldwell Banker Traditions and Brooks Real Estate for their long-serving support of Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center," says Nancy Paschall, Executive Director at Dream Catchers.
