Spotlight of the Month
Lily Capone
Equitation Rider
Horses carry us both literally and figuratively. They can be our partners for a beautiful trail ride and listen to us without judgment after a hard day. They encourage us in many ways to get up, dust ourselves off, and get back in the saddle. The connection with horses and the thrill of working with them can oftentimes be a catalyst for overcoming seemingly impossible obstacles. We see this every day at Main Stay. Our clients overcome physical, mental, and emotional obstacles through powerful connections with our horses. They are both healing and motivating at the same time. 

Although not a rider at Main Stay, Lily Capone is an inspiring rider who overcame many physical barriers  in order to pursue her love of horsemanship. Diagnosed with Marfan syndrome, a disorder that affects connective tissue, Lily has had to undergo many surgeries that have altered her physical stature. Her outward appearance has caused her to experience body shaming from her peers but through it all, Lily has persevered. You can read more about Lily’s story using the link below:
