My daughter will be finishing the progam this year as she is now too old and this program serves children. I cannot say enough about the wonderful people who coordinate this free program. All money donated goes directly to care for the horses. All people working are volunteers. My daughter has absolutley been enriched by her riding. She gained motor skills as well as self confidence and developed a social network with other disabled children.

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

the self confidence my disabled daughter gained.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the dedication of the volunteers to the children who participate.

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

all wonderful!

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

eliminate the waiting list for this wonderful experience disabled children. More importantly it could start an adult program so my daughter could continue riding.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
