Victory Reins became a part of our lives from the beginning. My daughter's horse is boarded there and we naturally started to get involved with the programs as volunteers. The program is organized, well-run, detailed and fun for all who participate. The faces of those who participate, volunteer or teach says it all. Everyone loves having a part in this program.

The Great!

I became involved with Victory Reins after reading an article about it's opening. I had been looking for a place that would let me ride a horse and get some exercise at the same time. I contacted Sandy the director and started 3 years ago. My husband and I were asked to be on the Board which we were honored to be a part of. I also helped run the last 3 fundraisers. Since I am a volunteer, special needs student and Board member I have been able to see all sides of this organization. Not only do I receive the therapy I need, I get to ride a horse in a safe and friendly enviorment. Victory Reins is more than an organization it is a family. Friendships are made and information is exchanged. Once you observe or work with a special needs student
you form a bond. Nothing is like watching a fearful child break into a smile as the horse begins to move and the accomplishment that child feels at the end of the ride. I hope all special needs community members find their way to Victory Reins and experiance the love and devotion of the volunteers and horses. Sandy becomes your friend, mentor and instructor all rolled up into one. I can't wait to see what the future holds!
