I have been involved with riding as well as therapeutic riding for over twenty years. It may be hard for people who are not horse enthusiasts to understand how valuable and successful a program like this can be. People of all ages and challenges can benefit and learn so much from spending time around qualified, caring staff and these wonderful, loving animals. It has been my pleasure to witness the "magic" first hand at Gaits of Harmony recently. This is a nonprofit which truly deserves your consideration and support.

Due to my physical disabilities I am unable to be a side walker during a lesson so my way of giving back is to help in the background. I serve on the Board of Directors and help to keep this wonderful organization going. I have been involved with therapeutic riding for the last 5 years and it still amazes me every day as to how much this therapy helps both the riders and the volunteers. Non verbal clients leave talking and singing, unsettled clients leave calm and those with physical disabilities are gaining core strength and balance. The volunteers also reap the benefits by being witness to these miracles unfolding. It is so rewarding. Our volunteers and donors are what helps us to help others.

This is an amazing nonprofit that works very hard. The staff, volunteers, riders, and board members go above and beyond to ensure that safety and fun are met in all aspects of the farm life. As a spouse of a staff member I see the daily labor, sweat, tears, and heart that goes into this program! Thank you everyone!
