Everyone chow downed thanks to the regions hottest chefs including Andy Husbands of Tremont 647, Mark Goldberg of PARK, Dave Becker of Sweet Basil, Todd Winer of the MET Restaurant Group, Paul Sussman of the Back Deck along with many others.
The Lovelane program began in 1988 when Debbie Sabin began providing therapeutic riding lessons at a barn on Love Lane in Weston. Sabin received her Masters Degree in Occupational Therapy and the program began to grow.
In 1992 Lovelane was officially incorporated as a non-profit organization.
There are 13 licensed riding instructors who provide more than 4,400 individual therapeutic riding lessons to children and young adults from 36 Metro West and greater Boston communities.
