‘The Foal Project’ To Benefit Equine Assisted Therapies and ATC General Community Fund

By Staff Report | News

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The “Foal Project,” a series of breathtaking photographs by photographer Lisa Miller will be featured at The Niche Gallery, located in the historic Collamer Building in downtown Saratoga Springs. 

The “The Foal Project,” a series 40-inch x 60-inch signed and numbered limited edition pieces printed on metal, will be at The Niche through the end of August. It is a not for profit traveling gallery show to raise awareness and funding for Equine Assisted Therapies. 

The project is sponsored by Towne Ryan & Partners, and the Nemer Motor Group. During the local stay part of the show’s proceeds will also help to benefit the Adirondack Trust Company General Community Fund.

There are 12 images in the Foal Project and depict the moment of connection between a mare and her foal at birth. This moment of connection symbolizes the human-horse connection and the importance of recognizing these equine assisted therapies and how they are making a difference in the lives of so many. 

The Foal Project images have been on display at prestigious galleries all over the country including Cross Gate Gallery in Lexington, Kentucky and the Aiken Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in Aiken, South Carolina. Proceeds from the sale of these limited edition, signed and numbered prints on metal go to the Foal Project Donor Advised Fund established at the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund in the Spa City. 

From there, the funds are used to fill grant requests made by Equine Assisted Therapy Centers that are IRS qualified 501(c) (3) organizations. Some of the centers that have received funding from the Foal Project Donor Advised Fund include: Peaceful Acres in, Pattersonville; Double H Ranch, Lake Luzerne; Columbia Greene Humane Society, Hudson; Wild Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Program, W. Bridgewater, Massachusetts; Jackson Hole Therapeutic Riding Assoc., Teton Village, Wyoming; The Root Farm, Vernon; and Star Riding Program, Aiken, South Carolina.
