I have been volunteering at Heartland for about three years, and in that three years, I have learned so much about the horses and about the amazing things that kids can accomplish by riding. I love volunteering and I would recommend volunteering at Heartland to anyone who has a love of horses and the things they can do to help the children.
I started volunteering at Heartland 18 months ago. I am so impressed with how well the organization is run, treatment of the horses, emphasis on safety, cleanliness and maintenance of the buildings and equipment and attitude of the staff. I see the staff as being competent and confident in their jobs. I have always been treated with respect and appreciation as a volunteer. I look forward to my time at the barn each week.
I first heard about Heartland 17 years ago when I had a student involved in riding there. I couldnt volunteer then due to raising my own children but kept it in the back of my mind. 5 years ago when my youngest graduated college and I had time to spare, I came to Heartland as a volunteer. I love horses and children so what better place to volunteer?
Outstanding organization that benefits children and adults with disabilities. A very rewarding experience helping people. The progress that is made for each individual though therapeutic riding is amazing! Witnessing the joy it bring to their lives is also a plus for me!
