Yankees HOPE Week Honoree: Flying Manes

Stefanie Dwyer's childhood in East Berlin before the fall of the Berlin Wall shaped her future in a unique way. After growing up in a country that had many limitations, Dwyer held on to memories of horseback riding that inspired her to bring that sense of freedom to people with physical and mental challenges.

“While I couldn't articulate it at the time, I felt a connection with those children with Down syndrome. Riding made them feel free, just as it did for me, and coming from East Germany, I've always understood how important that is,” said Stefanie.
