Reviews for Sonrise Equestrian Foundation

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer, donor and board member at SonRise for a number of years. I never cease to be amazed at the positive impact that horses have on special needs kids. The well trained volunteers and staff make it all work. It is a place where I can see and feel the difference my support is making in kids lives.

I have had the privilege to be associated with SonRise Equestrian Foundation for many years, originally as a friend of a participant's parents , then an occasional volunteer and now as a donor and Board Member. The work the SonRise staff and volunteers do with very limited resources is truly exceptional, not to mention the incredibly positive impact they are making in children's lives.

I commend the entire SonRise team for the hard work, dedication and committed service to children and their families that SonRise serves.
