I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping autistic children mount a horse and walk with them for their session, I recently had the honor of side walking 2 of our riders at the Devon horse show, I was in total awe at these kids, one is non verbal but boy did she know she was showing, i was amazed and cried with joy when she was awarded her ribbon
