Saddle Light Center has been a tremendous help to my daughter in her development. Kerstin and the rest of the staff are wonderful. The whole program helps the kids with both mental and physical development and is an incredible experience for the kids to get to interact with the horses. Elizabeth shouts with delight each time I tell her it's time to go ride! This is such a worthwhile effort and benefits so many great kids!

Our daughter Robin has been riding over 7 years and the services provided by Saddle Light have enriched her life. Her vocabulary and posture has continued to improve over the years and she looks forward to her session each and every week. We are thankful for Saddle Light

Our daughter is now 26 years old and has been riding since she was 3 years old. Not only did it help her all those years ago to start walking but it continues to help with her balance, coordination and motor skills. Kerstin has the best volunteers working with these individuals.

My child , who has CP, has benefitted tremendously from her experience at the Saddle Light Center. She receives Hippotherapy and not only is there a therapeutic benefit for balance, torso control, flexibility and stamina, but she is much more confident and self-assured! The therapists, staff and volunteers at the SLC are the best! This is a tremendous organization and Kerstin and the horses are a huge part of our family.

Saddle Light Center has been an amazing experience for my young son. The staff, volunteers, and facilities are excellent. My son started riding here when he was 2 years old. We have seen great improvement in his balance and mobility but it is very special to see his bond with his horse. His love for animals and the outdoors has grown along with this love for riding. He has so much fun, it isn't like work or therapy for him.

We have been with the Saddle Light Center for a couple years and have loved every minute! Our daughter started totally immobile and using a wheelchair. She is now walking all around and getting stronger every day. This is greatly attributed to the Saddle Light Center therapy and the staff. I feel blessed and grateful that we have been able to use their services over the past two years!
