My son and I were volunteers at the Riding Center during the summer of 2009. My son wanted to do some volunteer work that he could use on his college application. I am a nurse and just wanted to see if the program was being run professionally. Both us had a wonderful experience at the riding center. It was wonderful to see these children that usually had very little reaction to their environment to have great big smiles across their faces and a few of them even laughed out loud which their parents reported was very rare or nonexistent. The therapist at the center has nothing but love for the children. She turns no one down. Her first priority is that each child that needs the therapy gets the therapy. She worries about who is going to pay for the therapy later. That is why the center is so successful. The goal is to help children that can benefit from hippotherapy. I encourage everyone to visit the riding center; you will see angels at work. And the more than likely you will want to be a volunteer.
