i have watched a young friend of mine blossom at Victory Reins. She has gained confidence working with the animals. Her balance, always a struggle with CP, is better and her petite core is stronger. Her experiences and her descriptions of them bring a light in her face that glows. Everyone who works and volunteers there is dedicated and hardworking. Thank you all for your efforts.

I am the mother a a young girl who volunteers for Victory Reins. I have seen first hand the impact that tihs organization has on the lives of children. It not only helps the special needs of children, but has given my daughter a place to volunteer and feel useful. The smiles I see on the childrens faces as they are riding is remarkable and the volunteers and Sandy Michalewicz are inspiring.

Our granddaughter has been riding at Victory Reins. We have seen a WONDERFUL change in her speech and cognitive skills. It is a great place with great people who really care. Thank you to all who volunteer.

There are 2 children from my circle of friends and relatives that come here to ride. Everyone is so friendly and willing to answer questions. The children all seem to brighten up as we stand on the sidelines and cheer and encourage them. The animals are wonderful and truly seem to understand their special job.

Victory Reins has to be one of the best theraputic riding facilities in the Midwest if not in the nation. The facilites has a host of positive reinforcement for the horse community and riders with disabilities. I have personally watched the faces of children turn to sheer delight while receiving lessons from Director, Sandy M. The volunteers are there to to assist, provide stability to the riders and ensure safety is adhered to. This is definitely a clean, friendly and family oriented facility that welcomes all with open arms. Thank you Victory Reins for the job that all of you do so well. Christine J.

I am the mother of a volunteer, and I love what my daughter gets out of it. I have watched the joy on my daughter's face while riding or helping others. She has helped out with the animals and lessons there. I love the environment at Victory Reins, it is so inviting and friendly. All of the animals there are very calm and patient with the children. Everyone is welcome at Victory Reins!

Victory Reins has been a god-sent to our community. I know the work Sandy and her staff of volunteers do for children who are challenged. I have seen kids who have no way of relating to others up on a horse and relating to the horse. They are able to express joy at the connection each has been able to have with the horse. Sandy is able to slowly reach each child. Her patience and love, along with her expertise and the horses, are able to bridge the gap others have not been able to bridge. The parents of these children are often times the most touched seeing their child having fun and enjoying the experiences.

Have Sandy's husband Jim be available full time. Some of the kids really look forward to having Jim walk along with them.
