Review for Rose Of Sharon Equestrian School Inc, Glen Arm, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

a great non profit organization that was started more than 11 yr ago. Primary focus is providing basic horsemanship skills to persons with disabilities;primarily those on the autism spectrum. Through a grassroot approach they were able to build a wonderful indoor arena that was designed for the needs of those with sensory processing issues. It truly demonstrates how it puts the ability in disability; for the participants and the equine partners.

Rating: 5 stars  

Roses is built with passion: for the persons/kids we serve,for the horses that are our staff;for the volunteers that provide their time and energy to make changes in the lives of the clients we serve. the executive director takes no salary as the program is building; her salary is the positive changes she sees in the clients we serve. We live for the day that weather is no barrier to providing the services that make our clients blossom . Once our indoor arean is complete we will be able to serve so many more and the changes that evolve will touch so many lives in such a positive way.
