Ken Lukonis, President and CEO of Strategic Alliance Consulting, Inc. (Strategic ACI) and Partner in the Strategic ACI Foundation, along with Andrea Lukonis, Partner in the Strategic ACI Foundation, visited Sprout Therapeutic Riding and Education Center (Sprout) to visit Buggie. Buggie is the horse that Strategic ACI Foundation sponsored this year. The sponsorship includes paying for routine farrier and veterinary care, high quality hay, bedding, grain/supplements and saddle fitting.

“Buggie has been so critical to the Sprout organization, he is that calming horse that brings a smile to others”, Mrs. Lukonis commented.

Sprout is dedicated to changing lives through equine assisted activities and therapies. The Sprout staff work tirelessly to provide the highest quality care, service, instruction and therapy to over 125 individuals each week. In addition to sponsoring Buggie, Strategic ACI Foundation also donated student scholarships for two local children with special needs.

Mr. Lukonis stated, “Being able to not only help to take care of Buggie, but also help a couple of students take advantage of the Sprout experience, make this all the better.”

The Sprout Vision is for Hope, healing, empowerment and recovery through partnerships with horses. “In order for us to achieve our vision we need partners like Strategic ACI Foundation to continue to provide the resources necessary for our students and our horses; this donation helps us to continue to achieve the vision,” comments Mrs. Brooke Waldron, the founder and Executive Director of Sprout.
