Here are some of the comments we've recently received from our families, and donors like YOU helped make it all possible:

"Our son has come a long way with riding, and we are very proud of all his accomplishments and how well he is working toward a long-term independence. Riding has given him a reason to shine. He often writes and talks about riding at school and with his peers. We are very happy to be given the opportunity to have him in this program."

"[Our daughter] talks about the horses and the experience all the time and asks if it is riding day and looks forward to it. In school, her therapists use it in examples, drawings and photos, and they get her to communicate more."

"We are so appreciative of this wonderful opportunity you provide to the special needs community in our area."

"[Our son] loves it, and it is good for him on many fronts. He is completely disinterested in sports and reluctant to try new things that he thinks he won't like, yet he had a positive attitude about trying this. He really enjoys it and did well from the start. He loves animals, so that is a draw. It is great for him to develop more core strength and improve his eye/hand coordination. We feel so lucky to be a part of this wonderful program."
