Equi-Ed is a physical and emotional oasis for me. Thanks to my granddaughter, who is a passionate equestrian, I began taking lessons at Equi-Ed a few months ago. In addition to the normal aging process (I am 67 years old), nine surgeries have meant a significant loss of suppleness and chronic pain. With the knowledge and compassionate support of certified trainer Max, physical therapist Diane, and trusty sidekick Jennifer, I am beginning to communicate with my body again by learning to communicate with the horse. What fun! What Equi-Ed accomplishes with limited financial resources is nothing short of amazing! They support us with professionalism, consistency, and always good grace. My riding lesson is the highlight of my week!

The Great!

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

Improved suppleness and pain control in my own body.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand the program to develop a specialized riding component for senior citizens to maintain health, strength, suppleness, coordination, mental alertness, and possibly even age appropriate competition.

My autistic daughter is 17 years old and has been riding horses at Equi-ed for the past 10 years. It's a highlight of her week. In addition to having fun, riding has taught her patience and control of her body. She's learned to control the horse independently and is quite proud of her ability to do so. She has limited language, but knows "walk on," "trot," "whoa," "helmet," "reins."

I like going to Equi-Ed to learn horse riding skills and vaulting skills. They let me volunteer by having me help do barn activities. This experience helps me with my physical balance and personal confidence. My dream is to participate in competitions.

This therapeutic riding program is so important to people with disabilities, like me. I'm a paraplegic that has been in a wheelchair since 1980, from a car accident. I used to ride horses when I was a kid and loved it! This program not only allows me to enjoy being on a horse, but insures a safe and enjoyable riding environment. Therapeutic riding at Equi-Ed, not only lifts my spirits, I get health benefits too!

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

the horses, staff and volunteers are top notch; always there to support and create an enjoyable experience.

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

kind, experienced and reliable.

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

design and operate its own stables, provide the newest technology in riding gear and accessories. Offer more classes to the public. Most importantly, to purchase a dedicated horse so I could compete internationally in para-equestrian events.
