My son Jacob has been riding at CARE-ousel for two years. He has muscular dystropy. Jacob has become very fond of (Zip)the horse he rides. Jacob has been able to increase his upper and lower body strengeth and improve his core strength. Equine Therapy is unlike other forms of therapy. It has physical benefits and emotional benefits. Jacob looks forward to seeing his friend "Zip".

Care-ousel Therapeutic Riding is a wonderful non profit organization. Their instructor and their staff is very compassionate and professional and makes you feel as you are family. My child has made remarkable improvemnets in her speach, social skills, and listening techniques. This has been the most beneficial therapy my daughter has ever received and I can not say enough about this wonderful program. Thank you Kim for everything you do for my family as well as all the other children as well.

I would be overwhelmed at the amount of work that Kim and her family put into making Care-ousel such a positive experience

Care-ousel makes you feel like your family and Kim really takes an active interest in your child. Each lesson is developed to your childs need.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Extremely attentive and compassionate. I love the way that they made my daughter feel special.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Pay Kim to be on staff full time. Improve the arena footing. Purchase a lift to help students from ISHS to load the horses easier. Give needy students grants to ride.

Ways to make it better...

I was able to have my daughter participate 2 times a week.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The biggest challenge I see facing this non profit is lack of funding. Volunteers come and go which is understandabled but MONEY is the biggest mountain to overcome.

One thing I'd also say is that...

This is a wonderful program and the family that donates the property is great. If you have never been to a therapeutic riding program stop by and watch you will be amazed at the staff and the courage of the riders.
