17 Sep Elena DiSilvestro and Summerwinds Stables

Story #12
Air Date: September 17, 2013

Elena DiSilvestro founded SummerWinds Stables which rescues and provides a sanctuary for abused, injured, and neglected horses. They also offer equine assisted therapeutic programs to assist at-risk youth, disabled children, and veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They’ve rescued and placed more than 250 horses to date and have helped a countless number of people through their therapeutic programs.

Earlier this year, Elena’s landlord told her the property she was leasing for SummerWinds Stables was going to be used for other purposes. Her family also lived on the land so she had only 90 days to find a new home for herself, her kids, and 40+ rescued horses.

Elena found a nearby available property that would accommodate them, but she had not been saving for this move. 5-hour ENERGY stepped in, providing Elena $50,000, for a down payment on the new property keeping SummerWinds Stables alive.

On August 5th, 2013 Elena signed the lease for the new property and SummerWinds Stables officially has a new home to call their own.
